    Default Newbie question on jigging

    Troller here, never tried jigging for walleyes. Do you drift or anchor/spot lock? If you drift, what is an ideal or max speed? Thanks for your help.

    I usually drift slow. Sometimes 2 drift socks out to slow it down. I like to go .3-.5. Just make sure to are able to make bottom contact with your jig. Try not to drag it along the bottom. Sometimes subtle hops other times aggressive hops. Don't forget to try a blade bait. My favorite way to catch spring eyes.
    Good luck

    I also have only jigged a couple of times with limited success. When you say "Don't forget to try a blade bait." do you mean a crawler harness / weapon but jig it along the bottom?

    This is the type of blade I used this past weekend.

    Thanks or the picture.

    Are these also called Vibies? I have heard of them, but have never tried them.
