Dennis Lincoln brings us another walleye fishing tip of the week. When casting pay close attention to the exact location that are bumping and hooking a fish. If you miss a strike make sure to cast multiple times at that exact spot. Walleye school up in deep channels, river holes and behind structure. Therefore if you see big rock most often there are walleye staged behind it. They use the current break from the rock to rest from the current. This is also a great ambush location for a walleye to pounce on prey.
Lincoln says, “I cast my jig close and try hit the rock or log. Often that draws strikes because I think the eyes hear it hit rock. It’s so important to not just blindly cast. Be strategic and pay attention to exactly where you cast.”
