WALLEYE FISHING TIP OF THE
It was a summer night in July of 2004 when my skepticism
ended, and I stood there in stunned belief. Since then,
I've been happier than a "pig in shit" because I've
consistently doubled my catches - blowing all of my
In the past, I thought I had seen it all - products with
wild claims (and a lot of "hype") about how I would
catch more fish after buying them. I spent money on
almost all of them, and I was disappointed every single
time. From bugs in a jar to "sound wave" devices - what
a bunch of malarky...But on this night, something
completely crazy happened in the water...
You see, I was very lucky to be on a boat with a 72
year-old fishermen who had a "secret weapon" on board
that was about to make my jaw hit the deck...
I thought it was a sham like everything else I had tried
- until 40 minutes later, when the largest swarm of fish
I have ever seen began circling the boat in a feeding
frenzy! (if you keep reading, I will show you live video
of the swarm)
Bang, Bang, Bang! One strike after another - we pulled
in game fish constantly for 2 hours straight! I couldn't
believe my eyes, and when I was too tired to fish
anymore - I sat down with the old guy and he told me
Why Less Than 1% Of Fishermen Know About
The "Walleye Fishing Secret" For Catching
Hundreds Of Fish
As it turns out, this guy is an "old school" fisherman
from Tennessee - and one of the guys that discovered
this Walleye Fishing "Secret Weapon" in 1947.
It has been kept a secret all this time- in fact, less
than 1% of all fishermen have seen it, or even know that
You see, a very small group of fishing insiders have
kept the "Walleye Fishing Secret" out of the public eye
for years. In fact, it is sold in only a handful of
small fishing shops throughout the entire country.
I have been given permission to offer the "Walleye
Fishing Secret" to fishermen through this website. Over
100 walleye fishermen have gotten one from me - and they
are seeing the same results that I do...and it works for
all species of fish!

2001 Speaker at South Sound Chapter
presentation was with safety in mind & for the average
boat, not a special walleye outfitted boat. It is
recommended that a boat of at least 14' be considered.
He recommended our first attempt at walleye fishing to
be in the upper Columbia River near Umatilla/Boardman
Oregon. The states of Washington & Oregon have what is
called "shared jurisdiction" as far as fishing is
concerned. This means you can fish the Columbia river
FROM A BOAT in any area that the 2 states share the
river as a boundary with a license from either state.
You can also launch your boat from either state & bring
your catch back to that launch. You however can not
fish from the shore of the state that you do not have a
license for. You can not fish the tributary rivers of
the other state either.
His rod /
reel selection would be the same rod as you would
steelhead with, 7 1/2 to 8 1/2'. Reel would be a level
wind star drag of the Ambassador class. Line of 15#
should be about right. Mono is fine, however some may
prefer the spectra type lines.
recommendation was to fish ON THE BOTTOM, in from 20 to
30 feet of water.
downstream using a bottom bouncer wire/sinker unit,
sinker weight should be 1 to 3 ounces. Behind this
attach a walleye spinner harness or wedding ring unit
back anywhere from 18" to 40". Hook a large night
crawler onto the front hook with the rear hook embedded
into the worm, with the worm trailing straight back.
Scent of perch or annis may be applied.
you may have to kick the trolling motor out of gear or
use a bucket to slow you down. Many fishermen use an
electric trolling motor. The take down will probably be
a simple tug/tug, hang up type. This type of fishing
you do not want your rod in the holder, have it in your
hands for a faster response. Plus since you want it on
the bottom all the time, you will constantly need to be
letting it out a few feet or reeling it in to adjust to
the bottom contour.
When you get
thru with your pass, then turn around & troll upriver.
But on the upriver troll, change the lure to a crankbait
plug. This will be in the 5/8 ounce size and about
anything in the shad configuration seems to work. The
takedown on this will be more aggressive that the
average size of fish here will be about 3#, however
there have been walleyes caught here in the 16#
minimum size is 18", with limit of 6 fish, with no
more that 2 over 24".
estimation of the tablefare of walleye would be
about like a halibut.
recommended that you take at least a couple coolers
for ice to keep your bait, fish, and fresh
watermelon that is grown in the area.
are excellent launch, parks, RV camping in the area,
with motels also.
walleye all the way downstream to the Longview area,
with a goodly concentration near the Hiway 205 bridge.
However the river here can get effected by the weather
more than his upstream suggestion. Plus downriver you
will be into more recreational & commercial boat
traffic, and a longer way to go to get back to the
launch if weather gets bad.

more about fishing and hopefully you catch more fish!
