How to Drop Shot Walleyes Using Garmin Panoptix LiveScope

Forward-looking, real-time sonar imaging like Garmin Panoptix LiveScope opens the door to entirely new fishing opportunities previously unavailable. In this video, Wired2Fish’s Kyle Peterson demonstrates the power of scanning structures for big nomadic walleyes and targets them with a drop shot and leech.

As Kyle notes, he’s not zeroing in on schools of fish, rather single individuals roaming or relating to baitfish. He explains how to maintain critical offset to avoid spooking the walleyes while making accurate pitch casts to land the bait in their face. With an x/y axis in play, Peterson not only adjusts his casting distance (x-axis) relative to the fish but, just as importantly, targets their location in the water column (y-axis) — this, in turn, changes how he rigs. Longer drop shot leaders are more effective at catching active, high riding walleye than a short leader.

Lastly, Peterson shares the full details of his rod, reel and line setup for targeting big walleye to include a little trick to ensure his line to line knot doesn’t fail under repetitive casting and fighting big fish.
