Pymatuning Walley?

I do a pile of fishing, for some reasons I never got into walleye fishing and I know very little about. With all of the posts about Walleye fishing Pymatuning I have developed an interest in at least giving it a try. I have fished Pymatuning for bass; I know the lake as far as bass fishing goes. Which Iím sure is like comparing apple to oranges but I have an idea of the lake. I plan on going in a boat with a buddy who has Walleye fished in the past, but he has not been up there in many years.

Any tips, general areas, Iím not looking for your top secret hot spot or honey hole just some guidance. How many F.O.W, general area, what to troll with, trolling speed, or is trolling what we should be doing at all? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, again Iím not looking for your top spot just some friendly advice.

Thanks,

Snapper

I'm in the same boat. Never got into the walleye fishing, but now that we have a good boat, we want to give it a shot. Any tips are appreciated.

Re: Pymatuning Walley?

I usually just drift with the wind. Use 1/32 or 1/16 oz jigs tipped with a minnow. Put out just enough line that your bouncing on the bottom. Linesville and Espyville are the hot areas now.

Worm harnesses and floating jig heads also produce fish at times.

Also don't be afraid to try areas where you see no other boats drifting. This is usually where I catch the most fish!

Oh yea, If you fish the Linesville area watch for stumps and take extra jigs!

GOOD LUCK!!

Been fishing there a lot. Caught 10 altogether with a friend last weekend from shore while crappie fishing. Caught them on bobbers at 5 and a half feet deep and with floating jigs. They were all 14 inches.

Re: Pymatuning Walley?

Troll hot-n-tots or bottom bouncers with harnesses on the South end. 14-20' of water during the day.

North end troll small hot-n-tots or Rapala Shad raps just out of the timber.

Be prepared to loose tackle in the timber.

Re: Pymatuning Walley?

Another great option that is good over almost all of the lake is drifting jigs.

If you have a little breeze to move the boat, just turn it sideways to the wind and bounce jigs off of the bottom.
You can tip them with crawlers or shiners.
Alot cheaper to loose in the timber compared to lures.

If you want a good map, get one of the Hotspot Maps.
They mark alot of the timber and fish cribbings on them and narrow down your starting point.

Family up for the tourney this past week and killed the fish! Hot action! Several eyes in mid to upper 20" with lunker just over 28".

Many guys pinched for stringers FULL of pups around 12-14". Took em to fish cleaning station at Linesville campground showing them off!!
