Not even a nibble.
Just bad luck or am I doing something wrong?
When u say "walleye size" what do u mean? Walleye IMO bite on different size jigs/baits depending on circumstance n depth. So u have a treble hook on a jig? How big is your "chunk" of herring as well? I have only caught about a dozen burb over the past couple years mostly by fluke lol as I do not target them , but all have been caught on single hook, 1-2 ott size, single minnow.
Also caught outta rivers, not lakes, so I am not to sure if that makes much of a difference? Glowstix are an option, if permitted.
Trial n error my friend, lotsa good burb info here on the forum, do a forum search also.
