Walleye & Lucky Bug Lures!

When you talk walleye fishing with most North American walleye anglers, the conversation quickly turns to jigging or bottom-bouncing as they are both very effective ways to catch walleye across North America. Most walleye angler’s confident baits are live and frozen bait such as nightcrawlers, leeches, and frozen minnows. Many walleye anglers rarely tie on a hard-plastic lure when fishing walleye. However, what about hard plastics lures when fishing walleye?   

Walleye love flash and vibration and hard plastic baits such as the family of Lucky Bug Lures are designed to play right into a walleye’s sceneries. Lucky Bug Lures such as the Zombie Maxx, Fusion Extreme, and Lucky Plug have increased my walleye hook-ups in a wide variety of conditions by three fish to one over the last two years when casted, trolled, and bottom-bouncing for walleye. When fishing suspended walleye, these hard-plastic lures have raised my walleye hook-ups like no other bait and have become my confidence lures when fishing suspended walleye or walleye holding close to the bottom on lakes and reservoirs across North America. And, Lucky Bug Lures have saved me money! With live and frozen bait, it’s usually one walleye bite for one bait. At a minimum of $5.00 a tub for nightcrawlers, leeches, or frozen minnows, I was spending a ton of money on bait. However, for the price of one Lucky Bug Lure, I can hook into hundreds of walleye over the season and save my money for other fishing gear.

New for the 2020 season is the F-Bomb. Designed to create lots of flash and thunderous vibration through the water column whether it’s twitched as a surface bait, retrieved as a shallow runner, weighted with a split-shot for medium depths, three-way rigged, or bottom-bounced the wounded minnow action compels walleye to bite, even when they’re in a neutral or negative feeding pattern. It also works extremely well for a variety of trout species, bass, and northern pike. Go ahead and drop the F-Bomb!
