Here is a breakdown of how we pair our Walleye Trolling Diver Leaders with the Off Shore Tackle Company tadpoles and spoons. We also use Rapala J-7's and J-9's in place of the spoons, depending on the day/bite. The mainline setup is the same we use for trolling cranks, but we remove the trolling leader and clip on the tadpole to the mainline snap. This method not only works extremely well on Lake Erie but it also works all over the country wherever walleye and other predator fish roam. We remove the stock snaps that come with the tadpole for this specific method. The size #2 Pro-Lock duolock snap that we run on the mainline works great with the tadpole and trips them perfectly.
