Hey guys! im just curious if anyone has ever tried the Berkley Schooling Rigs for walleye? I've seen them at cabelas and contemplated buying one. I know they're more popular down south for bass and such but i cant seem to find much info on them with eyes. Maybe some of you can shed some light on the matter. I was also thinking of using frozen minnows/worms with a stinger instead of the powerbait, I think that would be a bit more effective.
I do believe you can only have 4 hooks on one lure and most of those have 5. I have a couple that have only two hooks but haven't tried them yet.
Ya 4 is the limit but im sure you could just cut one off and make it into an 'X' pattern. Maybe ill stop by cabelas and pick one up n giver a shot. It would just be a pain in the butt to get snagged and lose one of those guys. they're not the cheapest tackle out there.
I have the 3 arm Yumbrella rig. I went with the one with 3 arms just so there was no problem with it being legal or not. I have added 3 single j hooks and twister tail lures to it. I will also try the smaller sized swimbaits and maybe even a smaller spoon or 2 with it. I am not sure how this rig will preform as I have not tried it yet, but might work when the fish are really aggressive. It would be neat to catch 2 or 3 fish at a time. I hope the thick steel arms don't deter the fish. I agree with Arcom, all those hooks could really get snagged up and they are not cheep to loose + the price of your hooks and baits. I also saw another yum rig at Canadian Tire recently with only 2 wires spaced quite far apart. It looked to be just a single wire bent with split ring on it and a snap swivel at each end, no fish looking keel at front, but it should work also. I would also like to know how everyone has been doing with these Alabama / Umbrella rigs here in SK. WW
