How to Long-Line Walleyes with Jerkbaits

Always on the quest to catch fish using new methods, Wired2Fish’s Kyle Peterson encounters the power of jerkbait fishing walleyes during a bass fishing outing. He explores the new technique of long-lining (strolling) walleyes by making targeted casts to active schools of fish using Garmin Panoptix LiveScope, then triggering bites by making on the fly adjustments to his jerkbait cadence.

While trolling hard baits produces scores of walleyes, forward-looking sonar reveals they’ll often deny fast-moving lures zipping past, yet eat the same bait fished with a slow and methodical approach. Peterson details how to work deep-diving jerkbaits using the wind and long drifts (long-lining/strolling), then trigger following walleyes by manipulating the bait in response to their mood. This is a cool case study in how fish finder technology is opening the door for new and innovative ways to catch fish.
