Erie Dearie fishing tips

The size of the Erie Dearie depends on a couple of things. Water depth and drift speed of your boat. The lighter you can go on your Erie Dearie weight the better.
Drifting the bait slowly keeping the line tight works great for schools of walleye.
It is also common practice to tip the Erie Dearie with a minnow or a small piece of night Crawler.
The best way to hook your minnow is from under the head up thru the middle of it head.
It will stay on much better. It is better not to use big minnows. 1 1/2 to 2 inches work best.
Other wise the Walleye will likley rip it off.
Years ago we did not use bait on the Erie Dearie but, some where we managed to spoil them. You can still catch many Walleye without the minnow or crawler but it dose work better when the fish are being picky.
