No problem at all noah 😊 and you fish a countdown by casting it out and start counting, the lure sinks about a foot per second, give or take a couple inches.. ...more you can let the lure go right to the bottom, or you can stop it by start reelling in, nice and slow, you can also twitch your rod to make the lure jump, or stop reelling after a bit to let it sink again. different ways on different days, it's like a chess game.. Lol.
and other days they will hit so LIGHT that it just barley feel your lure move from it, and they like to hit the lure from behind also.. that will feel like you have ...more nothing on your line, then all of a sudden you feel your lure again, when this happens SET THE HOOK.. Lol. Noah I hope this is enough info to get you started, and if you have anymore questions, I will be more then happy to try to answer them.. Good luck, can't wait to see you with a walleye
and if the water is calm and clear I light to use a more natural colored bait, like black and silver, blue and silver, black and gold.. hear is the mane key to ...more walleye fishing, make sure you have a GOOD, but light line, my self, I use 8lb Seagare floricarbon line.. reasons for that line, is that there is NO stretch to the line, meaning that you will be able to feel every little bit that the walleye can do... some days they will smash a lure
I also like to use swimbaits, once again they come in a lot of colors and sizes.. so when I go to the lake to get started, I will normally pull out 5 to 10 different ...more lures that I'm guna run that day depending on the weather and the moonfaze.. if it's cloudy outside and darker I like to use something Bright, and if the water is stained I like to use a lure that is Bright and that makes noise, usually a rattle sound..
and I didn't beleave it until last spring, but the walleyes in the river DO eat flys.. and that I didn't know until last year.. so I would either look ...more it up on the internet on what really works in your area for your walleye.. or even maybe try to talk to someone there that fishing for them and just kind of see what they would recommend to try.
alright, thats the first step.. there are lots of different ways to get them to bite.. it could be as easy as just a hook and a small splitshot and minnow or crawler... ...more or my self seem to catch a lot of mine on rapalas like deep divers, huskeyjerks, count downs, and even the floating rapalas work.. I also like to catch them with Luna minnow jigs. but all these lures have different colors and sizes, and ALL OF that has to come together to get them to strike
