Walleye tourney-help

Recommended Posts

A guy I work with has invited me to fish in a walleye tournament(mostly fun)I havn't fished for walleye on purpose in years and when I did we pretty much used nightcrawler harnesses,during some bass tourneys that I fished and just pleasure fishing (mostly in lakes) we would catch some on a jig with a kalins grub,the tournament will be held in mid-may on a river with a fairly fast current,do you have any techniques that might help

                                                                                              Thanks

Again, I'm not horribly familiar with river walleye fishing but can share my limited experience.  With a strong current, I would start by finding any kind of breaks in the current or depth changes.  Target these areas and nearby water with jigs.  You may need to upsize on the jig a bit depending on the current.  If using live bait, I like to tip the jig with a shiner.  If using plastics, try a swimbait, grub or worm (I like the swim baits, personally).

Bring along some crankbaits, too.  Riprap, clam beds, and sand flats with any kind of depth change present are going to be good spots to look for.  Again, I'm not too horribly experienced walleye fishing on rivers but, when I have, I've had great luck with these basics.

Just curious, where is your tournament?
