Does anyone troll with weight forward lures like Erie Dearies? Does it work/catch walleyed? Why or why not?

Had a uncle that trolled weight forward lures or Hot n tot's with a old spin cast rod/reel. He died back in 2003 but in the late 80's when the walleye numbers where high he caught his share mostly fishing shallow water.

Why would you want to do this ? If you going to do the trolling thing do it right.

Those weight forwards are meant to be casted and reel back. Or just drift them when the wind is blowing .

I had a 7 & 8 year old on the boat a while back off bouy. They both put on 1oz Eries and drifted them ! They both caught 4 a piece ! The 7 year old even had our big fish for the day a 27.5" Walleye ! Not bad for his first time walleye fishing ! We ended that day with their dads and buddies limit plus mine one theirs 19 Total!

Works great - use a good swivel though. They will twist the heck out of your line.
