Walleye Fishing

We have been fishing eighteen mile creek in thirty feet of water during the day. Fishing has been great with limit catches on worms and twenty jets.

    Hi fellas,
    I need some advice as I am new to fishing walleyes on Erie.  I have a 16' Lund with a 30 horse Honda and a 7.5 horse Evinrude for trolling.  Can a guy use inline planer boards successfully with lead core?  If so, what does a typical rig look like (lure...10 yds fluorocarbon...lead core... mono)?  What about flat-lining with lead core?  Will the fish spook too much if flat-lining?  What sort of set-up should a fella use for flat-lining?  I've got some 10, 20 and 30 Jet planers too -- what sort of line setup should I use?
    Planning to fish out of Dunkirk or Barcelona.  Any advice is appreciated!!

    Sounds like you have the basics.  Shouldn't be too long with rapidly warming surface temps that the leadcore will come in handy.  Those fish will move out and suspend over deep water.  Do you have a segmented core or full?  You can run plugs, spoons, or harnesses off the core, it will just depend on what you have and what water depth you are targetting.

    Fished out of Barcelona a few weeks back, fished straight out three miles 60 FOW, check your leadcore literature for how many feet back for achieving desired depths. Mark fish and fish at that depth, straight leadcore is probably 6-9 colors back, I have fished leadcore off planers and downriggers both with success. Check this website for NY Erie reports:
