If you’re looking to add another tactic to your walleye fishing arsenal, swim baits are one of the best baits going! Favorites are Northland Impulse® Core Swimbaits, Impulse® Paddle Shads, and Impulse® Paddle Minnows teamed up with either an RZ Jig or a Slurp!® Jig Head. Pssst…. I find them a deadly combination for casting on Devils Lake and most places walleye swim.
Experiment with jig size from 1/8oz to 1/2oz. depending on retrieve speed and depth. Swim baits excel at covering water and searching for active fish. I find they select some large fish! My favorite areas are large flats and weed areas in the 3′-10′ depths.
Make sure to have room in your tackle box and join the Swimbait Craze! It’s a fun way to fish and will definitely add some walleyes to your day.
