Hello fellow anglers, will be coming up this year to fish for some Walleye. Wounder what type of bait or rigs to use ice fishing for Walleye. Would I use the same type of bait that I use for fishing perch ?

Big walleye or keeper Walleye ....use a Ripp'in Rap...I think it's #5 if you want #'s jig head minnow, spoon minnow head ect........if you want quality Walleye the Ripp'in Rap is the answer. This being said you will not put up the #'s the other presentations given, but if your after quality the Ripp'in Raps have been the way go to.

White Jig Ľonce with a live minnow works very well for us..
The trick with the walleye's is always pay attention to your line..
Good luck..

I either hook them thru the lips but better just under skin in front of dorsal fin. works very well on one outfit while jigging with the other

I put the hook through the minnows head when hugging a minnow head on a buckshot lure. I do a fast wiggle with it to bring in the eyes. The minnow always falls off when I just put it through the lips

That's my buddy's weapon of choice.He brings other tackle but only uses the white jig lol. Truth be told...he does quite well.

It is a great set up but it's got a lot to do with with the way the minnow is put on the jig.. It takes a couple times putting them on the right way the but once you get the hang of it it's deadly...
Hook through the mouth and out the gill , then twist the minnow and hook back out behind the head.. So much easier to show people then explaining it but the minnows stay alive and rest assured you can Jig till your arm falls off and the minnows rarely comes off..
