Captain Greg’s Go-To Lures for Walleye Fishing

Let’s face it: fish are picky when it comes to their food (especially walleye). And trying to find the right lures when you walk into the fishing section with rows of lures looking back at you is tough (and so is not buying them all…). That’s why Captain Greg is sharing his favorite fishing lures for walleye fishing.

  1. Storm’s Hot ‘N Tot®

Storm’s Hot ‘N Tot lure is one of Captain Greg’s favorite lures for catching walleye. This lure features a metal lip and side-to-side searching that walleyes have a hard time keeping their eyes off. What makes this lure so special though are the wide range of fish-catching colors it comes in. They come in classic, chrome, holographic or UV finishes. All of these features make the Hot ‘N Tot one of the best lures for trolling walleyes.

  1. Berkley® Flicker Shad Size 7

When Captain Greg is fishing for walleye in water 8 feet deep or more, his go-to fishing lure is the Berkley Flicker Shad size 7. With attracting colors and finishes, this crank bait is a pro at grabbing the attention of walleye. It also has a unique rattle and rolling, flicker action that mimics fleeing or injured baitfish.

  1. Berkley® Flicker Shad Size 5

The Berkley Flicker Shad size 5 is perfect when Captain Greg is fishing in water 7 feet deep or less. A lot like the size 7, the Flicker Shad size 5 acts as an injured or fleeing fish to trick walleye. Its smaller size makes this one of the best lures to catch Walleye in shallower water.

  1. Hand-tied Crawler Harness

Captain Greg ties his own crawler harnesses using Berkley Vanish, Dsichii hooks and Northland Baitfish Blades in gold, silver or chartreuse. These lures are known for zigzagging through the water and attracting the eyes of hungry fish. What are you waiting for?
