Big Water Trolling

with Jeff Simpson

Angling is often a game of efficiency based on the location of your target species.

Walleye are one of those fish that often roam over vast flats and lake basins—searching for forage.

This open water pattern occurs from late spring throughout summer in many lakes across the north country. Walleyes can be found relating to the bottom and suspended somewhere in between — depending on the forage location.

When walleyes spread out, classic walleye techniques like rigging and jigging tactics are not the top option. Trolling is unquestionably the best tactic that enables you to duplicate a specific depth level and simultaneously comb lots of water. In these conditions, spinner rigs and crankbaits shine to put large walleye in the boat.

Let’s Join Angling Edge’s Jeff Simpson and Ty Sjodin with a primer on big water walleye trolling.
