Name #1 top jigging lure for walleye I.Y.O.
« on: Dec 13, 2020, 07:09 AM »
My wife is a great walleye fisherman in open waters but neither her or I have any luck on the ice. Maybe because we are novice or maybe location.
I dont know which it is but having the best lure could at least cut the odds down on one side of the question.

If you could only have one lure for poor water clarity, which would it be?

If you only could have one lure for lightly stained water, what would it be?
Lure weights?


Cleat water in our area is non-existent.

Thanks for the help. I will be building a set of lures off the recommendations given here.

First off, we are going to end your walleye "ice" curse, this winter!  Second, if I had to pick a lure for real stained water, it would have to be a rattle trap or buck shot, something with a rattle in it.  The sound will definitely help.  In lightly stained water I would use a Swedish pimple it either chartreuse orange or green.  In clear and semi-clear water it would be silver pimple with green, blue or red prism tape on the back.

I guess I'm the only schmuck who still uses standard gumball jigs in either 1/4 or 3/8 ounce with red or pink colors, bonus points if you can find ones with red hooks. Works for me.

Rippin Raps are about the noisiest lure I know of for stained water. I'm a fan of Shiver Minnows and Blade baits too
I usually tip a minnow head on the front hook.

I havent ordered anything yet so thanks for including this. I appreciate it. What works all the time for some does not work every time for all ;)

I have had some great days with the chubby but overall the walleye flyer has probably put more walleye on the ice than anything else.

Just tried to pull up "walleye flyer", and it takes me to Lindy's rigs, but can't find a walleye flyer.  Where did you find them?

That's just a yellow foam slip bobber that's followed all the way down the line to the jig.

Either an Airplane Jig or a light set up on a tip up...#16 treble on 8# test mono with a 4" "blue"  minnow.
