Tokyo Rigging Walleye

with James Lindner & Jeremy Smith

 

Tokyo Rigging Walleye is the real thing. To catch freshwater and saltwater fish consistently, you have to understand your target species’ nature, including their seasonal movements, preferred habitat, and forage preferences.

Today many lures and rigs are often designed for given species and for given situations. The fact is, many lures and rigs have great crossover applications to multiple species. Walleye can’t tell the difference between a walleye bait or bass bait if it’s about the right size moving in the correct depth at the right speed — it’s fair game!

A great example would be the lowly Ned rig, which is a simple small stick worm that totally catches fish. Smallmouth, largemouth, walleye, and panfish. It’s a bite-size snack the moves slow, and fish just can’t resist it.

Another lure that has become popular amongst anglers across the country is the swimbait. From its humble beginnings, swimbaits now come in sizes from 1-inch sizes for panfish to 12-inch models that appeal to the largest predators and everything in-between.

The newest rig in bass angling is the Tokyo Rig. Initially designed for fishing heavy weed cover, anglers have since applied Tokyo rigging tactics to different species and angling situations.

Let’s Jeremy Smith and James Lindner with a little primer on Tokyo rigging for walleye.
