Years ago when the walleyes went suspended most people thought they just stopped bitting. Now look at how many people are pulling boards.
Most fishing techniques were developed by local guides, not pros. The pros learned from the guides.

Until the walleye guys are being paid to fish by someone other than there own pocket books, no one can restrict the mechanics of the game. Live bait and walleyes is like Peanut butter and jelly.

Explain to me what you think the "Big League" is for walleye fishing

PS If I wanted to be like the Bass guys, I would be a bass guy. I ain't and dont so I wont.

Live bait was like that in bass fishing also until BASS came along and made anglers man up and fish only with artificials. Who wants to watch a guy fishing with a worm and a bobber?

That would be about as much fun as watching a guy trolling ski in a walleye.

Man up...wow! Seriously? If that is the attitude then have them “man up” and drop all electronics so they have to be one with nature and give the fish a chance.

Yeah, because watching a guy trolling or casting a crankbait is infinitely more exciting...

Man up, lol, give me a break.
