sponsors Tackle Terry By Terry Tuma QUESTION: How far off bottom do you jig for springtime river walleyes? TERRY: Use 1 /8-ounce jigs in current, but if you can contact the bottom with 1 /16-ounce, use it. Wind combined with current usually demands heavier jigs. Deeper depths will too. Jig no more than 3 inches above substrate to trigger bites. This is why correct jig weight is vital to maintain bottom contact without plowing it. A vertical presentation off the bottom of 1 to 3 inches, not 4, is crucial. If necessary, lift and drop 12 inches to attract, and immediately hold at depths where walleyes respond. The trigger is lively minnow movement. Vertical fishing demands concentration, boat control, and rod sensitivity. You may not even feel the bite!
