    What's everybodys favorite lure? mine has to be the venerable jig. With a selection of various weight heads, and a bag of twister tails. Can always manage a few fish. They work shallow, deep or in between.

    Depends on application for me, start off pulling Rapala in perch color or black/silver blue/silver, and Crawlers in a harness (sure is hard to get the bit in their mouth anymore) or just hair jigs tipped with some type of meat (worm, minnow, leech)

    Gotta be the original Rapala Countdown. Work it deep, work it shallow, always will catch a few fish.

    Coming from walleye country my answer has to be "what works that day." If I can pick any one thing I would take roundhead jig. They are very versatile and can be presented so many different ways.

    OK I have several reef runners, but have no idea what this color is you speak of, jet black I'm guessing, but with some of them shades I've seen you sporting around I have to ask :wink: :smile2: By the way, whats yer pop charge for a run out on the eyes since thats the only way?

    In my experiences of trolling, jigging or whatever I think shade and action is more important than specific color.

    I typically use bright colors in bright light and dark colors in low light or cloudy days. When trolling I watch what the bait fish swim like and try to find a crank bait that swims like the bait. Example, last year we kept catching tiny white bass, I changed to a white bait that wobbled like a small white bass swims and all of a sudden was catching nice walleyes.

    live minnow on a carolina rig. If I had to choose just one artificial bait, it would probably be a rapala in black and silver. Another old reliable standby is a orange and gold dare devel.

    I don't have enough experience with Walleye to have a favorite lure. I'll let you know if something starts to work consistently though.
