  1. live minnow i seen a guy catch a citation walleye here in virginia from the bank with a minnow

  2. I have caught a lot of walleye on floating crank baits such as Rapella. Also try live bait such as a minnow with a slip bobber.

  3. For fishing off of (your) dock, I would use a 1/8 to 1/4 oz. jig, preferably a Fuzz-E- Grub or a Northland Fireball, tipped with a 3 to 4″ minnow. You may need to add a stinger hook. Other options would be a 1/4 oz. jig head with a soft plastic minnow body (or a Berkley Gulp minnow) or a deep diving and/or suspending crank bait. Try fishing after dark. You might not have the best of luck, just limiting yourself to the dock. If you don’t have a boat, try shore/dock/pier fishing where Lake St. Clair and the Detroit River meet.

  4. use a leech minnow an a slip bobber rig with a split shot about a 12in above hook that way you can adjust your depth i would stay about a 18 inch of bottom and i wold try this after sun set
