Despite being a predator fish, most anglers pursuing walleye opt for live bait delicately presented in their face. Some of the best and most exciting walleye fishing however, occurs using artificial lures like crankbaits, jigs and plastics. Finesse swimbaits rigged on a jig are proven and consistent producers of walleye in clear and dingy water alike. Wired2Fish’s Scott Glorvigen delivers a pile of good info on how to rig and work swimbaits, select colors for the situation, and how to choose and fish the best structure with this versatile lure.
