    I prefer medium action for casting so I can get a little more whip in the cast. I use medium 9 footers on downriggers too so I can bend them over tight to take up the slack when a lure is pulled off the release. I will use heavy action rods for those trolling lines that go straight out the back of the boat or for deep fishing with live bait.

      I like my heavy for all Lake walleye fishing. My most frequent method is drifting and casting with a count down. Count down to get out of the bright light that walleye don't like and to get near the thermocline. I don't use down rigger much - fish are not that deep early in summer. If I troll I have to drag a sea anchor to slow me down and usually would use some type of dipsey diver. Usually get my limit in 45min to a couple hours.
