The only problem with traditional northern walleye lures and tactics in our southern mountain reservoirs is that for much of the year, the walleye are holding at 50-60 feet or sometimes much deeper. I have caught them at over a hundred feet deep in Fontana- their eyeballs sometimes pop out when you reel them up. Vertical jigging is about the only logical way to reach them at those depths. I know a couple folks who do pretty good deep trolling Sutton spoons or the like with downriggers, though.
