For Walleye, jigging is a great technique for catching the fish in deep or shallow waters. Even in deep colder water, jigging can cause a reaction even in more lethargic fish. There are some different types of techniques people use while Walleye fishing. One is bottom hopping. This technique requires you to let the jig go all the way to the bottom of the river or lake. Next, you lift the rod to move the jig up and down off the bottom.
The second technique is what they call dragging. This is used for a break or near the bottom. You place the boat perpendicular and drag the jig with leeches or nightcrawlers. Also, make sure to practice and experiment with the placement. The third technique is vertical jigging. Find a hot sport of Walleye, try to place your boat over the spot while dropping the jig vertical over the area. Be sure to mark the area to help with placement.
The fourth technique is swimming. It is best to use swimming early in the year. Simply cast your jig and steadily swim the jig across the water simulating a swimming motion. The fifth technique is drifting. When it comes to a river like the Saginaw river, this technique works best. Cast a long line and drag the jig across the bottom of the river. Of course, these are just some of the techniques you can use.
