I've caught alot of walleye on warts but I only run metallic colors. painted lures never had much success with gold is usually the best color but green and chrome has done very well on the bay this year

I have been running metallic gold, metallic blue firetiger and one that is metallic and mix of all colors (blues, grays, purplish) not sure what is called. Limits the last three times out including an 8 lbr Sunday on the gold one...60 to 65 feet back 1.8 to 2.0 mph, 18 to 19 FOW.

Ok so try this. Your line to a bouncer 2oz is good. then a 6 ft leader to the wart. Put a crawler on the front hook. Key is to hook it using two of three loops of the treble, now to get it to run right you have to pay attention to how the hook hangs on the ring to assure it is the two that are the ones that hang evenly. The crawler should look like legs dangling off the back. Now fish this as a standard BB by free spooling to the bottom and click the bail.
