#5. Most common size of the fish Walleyes eat. However the other 2 larger ones are not bad options to have in the tackle box.

W5's and W7's in multiple colors, add a tuned treble hook and O ring and your ready to go.

W7 with a #6 triple grip treble and the nose hook cut off, it causes more problems like getting hooked on the hole than hooking fish.

Do you guys tip these jiggin raps with anything? Spikes, mealies? I've never targeted eyes before and want to go for them this season. Any obvious tips I should know? I heard they are more active at night?

Here #3 and #5 are the most common. SE WI. Also without cutting front hook off, have caught many fish on just the front that otherwise would have been missed.

#5,7,9 They will tell you which size is working all you have to do is change up. I fish them mostly naked year round but when its tough in the winter they do hit better sometimes with a minnow head on the three way. Fresh dead or salted minnows work just fine, just pinch the head off.
