Catching Walleyes is not hard as long as you have the right bait. Now you can use minnows, leaches, nigh-crawlers, ect.. but if you want to limited the different types of baits then the ice Fishing Jigging Rapala is one you want to have. The Jigging Rapala is the best all Season Walleye bait out there!
I like to get through the Morel Mushroom season before fishing for Walleyes & Bluegills, but the temperatures have been so warm this Spring I needed to get out onto the lakes. Now this year has been outstanding so far for Walleyes and as in the past years the Jigging Rapala is my top Walleye bait, then the 200 & 300 series Bandit.
Jigging Rapala In Action
When using the Ice Fishing Jigging Rapala in open water you want to find a sand bar or weed line for your casting and retrieving. Start with the #7 size Rapala and move to a #5 if you are not getting any bites. I have found in some cases the Walleyes prefer the smaller #5 Rapala over the #7.
