Late Summer Trolling for Walleye

By Jason Mitchell

Have often heard not to fish memories.  When I look back however over my own fishing career, some of my greatest fishing memories involved trolling deep diving crankbaits over deep water.  So many situations from mid-summer on where traditional live bait locations and tactics just got tougher.

Jerk baits can roll with a lot of different names and monikers.  Twitch baits, minnow baits…. Basically any slender profile, shallow running, minnow shaped hard bait.  The actions and characteristics can vary dramatically amongst different companies and lures.
