When I’m tying up two hook crawler harnesses, I will often use a colored hook for the “nose” hook. It might be a red hook or one of the Mustad Neon hooks, positioned on the harness for hooking the node of the crawler. I typically stick with bronze for the back hook so that it remains camouflaged or hidden in the crawler. I feel the colored hook gives the fish a target to key in on therefore giving me a better chance of hooking the fish. It’s a great tip, and has helped me catch a lot of walleyes.
- What’s the best color of spinner blade to use for walleyes?
- How fast do you pull a bottom bouncer and spinner when fishing on structure?
