They are the best eating freshwater fish though not the best fighters.

Has anyone ever fished for them below Center Hill Dam? I know they're there because I saw a guy catch one about a year ago in late spring during no generation. Is this a once in a while thing or is it worth it this time of year to specifically target them? I've never caught a Walleye but I'd love to learn how since I hear how good they taste.

Can anyone give me some advice for lures, technique, location? I don't have a boat for now so I'm stuck with bank fishing. If they're plentiful in the Caney, I have no problem wading and bank fishing the deeper parts and I won't ask for GPS coordinates of your hotspots. Just tactics, productive lures, and the body of water. I'll find them from there. Thanks!

The best lure i have ever seen is a simple walleye rig which is a simple spinner rig I have hundreds of them and bottom bouncers. Use that with minnows or worms and just cast out and real in.

Yeah. I can tell you how to catch them on the caney...PM me and i will let you know some great times/techniques to go after them. Harnesses dont work well for them here in mid tn because of all of the bream, cats, drum etc cleaning you out in short order. Anyone wanting to get on some fish hit me up in the spring and i can show you how to get on them anywhere on the Cumberland. FH....you should see the monsters we catch on Dale.......better yet, you should see the smallies that we catch on accident while chasing the eyes on Dale ! No exaggeration....have had 4 fish over 6# in a day......and a big muskie to boot.

Well as soon as hunting is over I will be getting the rods dusted off and contacting you. If possible my girls want to come out and learn.

Maybe we should put a little "rookie" tournament together after hunting season.

Winner eats walleye. Looser eats crow. \:D
