Ok guy have to ask will putting a wiggler on a jig help with walleye at all ?
I am thinking of going and dipping some so I get nice big wiggies. and has any one ever heard of Anise oil was told by a old timer to put a few drops on hand before baiting or tying on jigs. :lol:

Try anything cant hurt put it that way. In general though walleye senses are good when it comes to low light sight and lateral line senses. Their sense of smell is among the worst so I guess if its a visual thing yes, a scent thing dont bother. I use anise oil or some form of it, sometimes, its the main ingredient in a lot of the bait mate products sold. Especially good for species like trout.

Don't know about winter, but the eyes sure do love 'em in spring when they're turning into "winged creatures". Have to try a gob sometime through the hard water.

i've caught a walleye on wigglers before through the ice. mighta been a fluke though, i was fishing for panfish at the time.

give em a whirl, like was said earlier, can't hurt. and they definitely eat them when they are hatching in the early/mid summer.

I use wigglers on Hardy. I have done better with than without on the smaller fish. The larger fish dont seam to care. But there are not as many larger fish as small up there. So I try for anthing I can get samll fish are better than no fish.
