We received an interesting call this past week. A couple of weeks ago we sent some 3-inch Puddle Jumpers to Gene in North Dakota. Gene is along-time walleye fisherman, and he had used smaller Puddle Jumpers on crappie before so was familiar with them. He gave us a call a day ago needing more lures. He wanted to tell us how well the Puddle Jumper was doing on the Missouri river catching walleye. He could not say enough good about them. He did say the Chartreuse seemed to be the best at the time. He ordered more Chartreuse and Chartreuse Glitter along with a number of other colors.
If you have not tried Puddle Jumpers on walleye you may be missing out. Put a 1/8 oz or so jig head on them, depending on how fast you want them to fall, and give them a try. We think the “wings” give the lure a wide profile and a gliding action which makes them real appealing.
