    Countdown Rapalas size 7-11. You can’t beat how versatile they are for river fishing for walleyes. Slow, fast, stop, shallow, or deep. You need to put the bait in front of the fish to make 'em strike, right? Use Stren's Super Braid 14# test and you can't go wrong at night or the twilight hours for any size walleye.

    I hate to be unoriginal but I love catching eyes on a lead head jig tipped with crawler/leech or slip bobber fishing at night can not be beat.

    Lead Head jigs in the rocks, just can't beat the feel of those eyes slamming them when your working a reef.

    I have not fished for walleye in years since you cant find them where I live now. When I was growing up in Cleveland though I used to use a variety of twister tails tipped with minnows. I remember that a lot of folks used to also use a lure called the "Erie Deary" (sp?) I dont even know if they make them anymore but I remember it being a hot lure at one time.

    My favorite presentation is the one that is catching fish on the given day.:big_smile:

    In all truth, my absolute favorite is a round head jig with a leech. Some days simply don't allow that method to work. When that happens I go to a plain snelled hook or if I end up trolling I like a #5 Salmo Hornet under lead core line.

    Walleyes are one of those fish where you can have 20 guys each with a $2,000 tackle box and everyone will have a different favorite and will tell you something different works. It's all what you are confident with that matters.

    My favorite lure is a jig of some sort,I vertical jig the detroit r. in the spring,cast floaters on the maumee r. a little before they get going on the det.r. and if you can find them on the reefs or riffles in lakes and rivers I use the lightest leadhead I can get away with.

    Well, a lot comes into play when fishing 'eyes. Sometimes baits will work better than artificial, and in those cases I go with a standard jighead(size depending on current) with a whole nightcrawler. But since the question was in reference to artificials my top two are:

    1.)Soft Plastic - Wide gap "shakey" worm jig with 4" rainbow ringworm

    2.)Hard Bait - A few come to mind, but as I look up at the 28" fish mounted over my head right now, the Wally Diver, Orange/Black back that is still hanging out of its mouth, it has to get the nod.

    In the winter I go with a number of different colored jigs (favorite being pink jig with white curly tail). But in the warm months when their on the move I'll throw several different rapala countdowns and smithwick rogues at em.
