CATCH MORE WALLEYES WITH BOUNCER FLARE
One of the most productive methods an angler can use to catch more fish is trolling with Bottom Bouncers. While this isn't the most complicated technique for catching Walleyes, there are a few tips that you should be aware of if you are just getting started.
Bottom Bouncers are used to maintaining close contact with the bottom of a lake or river. This technique helps keep your bait in the strike zone.
The Bottom Bouncer is suspended vertically over the side of a boat while trolling or drifting. The idea is to present your bait just above the bottom without becoming snagged.
This method of trolling works great in Sand, Gravel, or Mud.
A typical rule of thumb is 1 oz of weight for every 10 feet of depth (to fish 20 feet of water, you would start with a 2 oz weight).
Often times anglers will utilize a medium-heavy, fast action rod. Utilizing a baitcasting reel is helpful for feathering line out to maintain contact with the bottom.
The most common type of line to use is 10# Monofilament, although this can vary depending on your scenario.
A Snell or Leader of roughly 3.5 to 4.5 feet is acceptable.
CHOOSING YOUR BAIT
WHAT TO USE
Each Fish Daddy Bottom Bouncer comes equipped with American Made Components so you can get right to fishing. Our components allow anglers to easily change their lure or bait presentation.
Trolling with spinner rigs is an extremely popular presentation for Walleyes. A Spinner Rig can be set up to offer a variety of different bait options including Nightcrawlers, Leeches, Minnows and Soft Plastics.
While not the most innovative way to present a meal to eager Walleyes, presenting Live Bait on a plain hook with an in-line foam floater is a proven finesse tactic for putting more fish on your line.
Often a tactic reserved for three-way rigs, trolling Floating Crankbaits behind your Bottom Bouncer is a technique that can be used in snag-free waters where a specific depth is maintained through your trolling run. Simply locate bottom, and give your reel a crank or two to keep your crankbait from dredging into the bottom.
