Jerkbait and Berkley Gulp Jig Fishing for Big Walleye in a River - Walleye Fishing Video
I was jerkbait and jig fishing in a river in New York during fall (late October). I started jigging at night by casting out a Berkley Gulp minnow jig and twitching it through a pool, and I caught a small walleye right away. Then, I started working a husky jerk rapala for big walleye, and I hooked into what looked like a 24" or 25" walleye a few feet in front of me, and it started thrashing and rolling around, and it threw the hook by the time I turned my red light and camera on. Then, a few casts after I lost that big walleye, my friend hooked into what some people might consider a trophy walleye -- 28" and 8 lbs, 11 ounces -- and I watched him beach it. I caught a few more decent walleyes before measuring and weighing his walleye and having a pike or musky cut my husky jerk off. I went to school and came back around sunset, and I caught another decent walleye around 19" and then a 20.5" walleye on a jointed rapala.
