PJ says some of the store bought pre-set-up spinners work really well, but some of the details on custom rigs help make them even more effective.

He talks about the importance of beads and a large clevis. Front there, it’s a six foot leader, 20 pound fluorocarbon, number two red octopus hooks.

Mid-Summer Walleye Tactics

James and PJ spend some time out on the lake in the middle of the summer to show you what it takes to fish walleye when the water is calm, clear, and when the fish are in the weeds.

James says the tactic they’re using in the video above is a spinner rig right above the weeds. This is designed to work in the middle of summer with these conditions. However, you need to be near deep water, too. This won’t usually work in areas where it’s all fairly shallow.

The guys are running the boat at a little over one mph. James goes over the fishing electronics he has in the boat and how he’s using the, to ensure the boat’s doing all the right things.
