What action rod should I use for trolling walleyes?

Medium Action is what we’d call our rods in the Bass Pro Walleye Angler Signature Series. They do however have a fairly fast taper with a soft tip for fighting fish. Rod action along with (and maybe more importantly) line type (stretchy vs non-stretch) will change the action of the bait, sometimes for the better … sometimes for the worst. We typically try both Trilene 10# XT mono and FireLine 10/4 when trolling to determine which one is going to give the lures the best action.

Good Luck Walleye Fishing,
