What set-up do you use for fishing in a deep river with a bit of current?

For walleye a silver spinner with a worm on the hooks, split shot or two if needed. For perch. worm with a regular sinker, maybe a bobber if I’m lazy. I love the taste of each of those, fried. Also, for perch I sometimes fillet part of another fish and use chunks of that.

I just so happen to have all of that stuff.I am wondering what depth

The Susquehanna is about 20 to 25 feet average. Walleyes, close to the bottom. Perch about 8 to 10 feet in Summer. Shallower if colder.

Wolf river rig 12” off the bottom or lindy rig on the bottom. Use weights as light as possible to keep the bait where you want it.

@lucillelucillelucille Thanks. We caught most of our walleyes trolling, the perch anchored off a dropoff in the river. Now I’m hungry though.

This is a metaphorical question, isn’t it? Are we allowed to answer metaphorically, too?

I’d fish with you any day. I’ll row the boat, and you manage the… um… pole.
