The all tackle record walleye was caught on August 2, 1960 and weighed in at 25 lbs. oz. caught in Tennessee Lake, Tennessee.


Walleye have excellent eye sight in low light conditions. In so saying, many Walleye often times gravitate to deep water. Many times walleye tend to hold near on the bottom and getting baits within their strike zone can be a challenge. One of the best walleye fishing techniques is to drift a 3- way walleye crankbait rig. This set up consist of a three way swivel attached to the main line and a 2 foot drop line attached to a 2 ounce bell sinker. To the free end attach a 6 foot leader that is connected to a floating or suspending crankbait.

The key here to this walleye fishing tip, is to have the sinker intermittently touch bottom as you drift the bait across the bottom. You should consider a floating crankbait when drifting across rocky bottoms with heavier structure. This will assist with avoiding hang ups by stop reeling in when you feel the crankbait make contact with structure. The bait will float up and clear its hooks in most instances.


Consider utilizing a suspending crankbait on clearer floor bottoms. Suspending baits under these circumstances will allow the angler to keep the bait within the strike zone longer. Fishing three way rigs works well in both moderate and deep water and is a test proven technique to get baits onto fish holding on or near the bottom.
