I haven’t fished for walleye up near Cordell Hull…
However, I’ve caught a lot of them from shore in downtown Nashville during the summer. I’ve had the best success throwing black bandit 200 crankbaits in the early evening or just after dark. In the past, I’ve always found them wherever skipjacks are present. If there weren’t any skipjacks, there weren’t any walleyes. I’ve also caught some big ones on a 5″ flutter spoon around the mouth of the Stones River at Neely’s Bend. That seems like a real timing specific deal though [late spring / early fall]. They were always with schools of stripers. I would think the same type of thing would work up towards Cordell Hull. While you’re up there, you could also troll the area around where the Caney Fork empties into the Cumberland for stripers [they get big up there]. Also, these were all walleyes, not sauger.
