Re:DOWNRIGGERS AND WALLEYE
White bass have been crazy plentiful this year, and riggers have caught a lot of them. Some trips this year riggers have caught most of the walleye, but most trips junk has dominated them. If you're pulling junk on them, check them often or switch to a Chamberlain release. Keep the balls parked a couple feet above the fish, but don't forget to account for rigger ball blowback...usually a couple feet at 2 mph with 10-12# balls. Also, walleye usually like long leads...trout aren't as fussy. I use 60-120'. Riggers often add more variety to your catch.
