Never fished for walleye before, but I'm going to in the near future (someplace near Glendoe, WY). Anybody have experience with walleye and what gear do I need? I'm assuming heavier test, but no idea about bate/lures/etc. We'll be in a boat if hthat matters.

No experience with Walleye - you need to find someone from the nothern part of the mid west to help you.

I was in Minneapolis last year about this time for a week. The first couple of days I heard things like the season opener is this week and lots of other hype about it.

I was not sure what season they were talking about. Baseball was already in play and basket ball was dwindling down and too early for football. I learned by watching it on the news that it was Walleye season. They take it very seriously there.

Have fun.

My only Wyo. experience is at Seminoe res.

3" Mister twister jig with a 1/4 oz jig head in chartreuse tipped with a baby night crawler (or a half big one). Look for sandy points, windward side. Stay in about 9 feet of water, cast to the shore and side jig back. Keep the line tihgt and set the hook for anything that feels different.

Worm harness on a bottom bouncer, slow troll a 4 in Rapala work as well.

I've heard good things about Glendoe and pathfinder as well, but no experience.

ive had a lot of luck with live minnows and a leadhead jig just bouncing it off the bottom. works really well if you can find a submegred island or other structure.
