Andrew Martinsen's Walleye Fishing Update


Catching Walleye in Low-clarity Waters
Using Walleyes' Patterns to Your Advantage


Some anglers think that walleyes shut down when the water becomes incredibly murky. That's not always the case.

Walleyes don't normally stop feeding. They have slow periods but they will eat if an easy meal swims by. When the water visibility goes down, walleye actually have to increase their hunting efforts. Meals are harder to come by when you rely on your vision and can't see the fin in front of your nose.

The ambitious angler can find walleye in the murky depths if they know where to look. When the visibility is low, walleye can be fond near underwater structures. Rocks, reefs, and holes are ideal spots for lurking walleye to wait.

Walleyes aren't the only fish that are having trouble with the muddy waters. The baitfish is also having trouble. When the clarity goes the baitfish rely more on routes that they know are safe. Walleyes use this instinct to wait and trap the baitfish as they pass.

Walleye will hole up in these structures and may not be easy to tempt out. Add a minnow or night crawler to your rig. Keep your presentation very slow and you may have a biting chance.

Shallow areas are good places to look for walleye when the water is murky. If you can find them here then it narrows your search quite a bit. If they are holding deep then your range of locations is opened wide.

Depth finders don't work very well when the water is less than eight feet deep. Set a trolling pattern starting near the shore and work your way in until you find some fish. Once you are deep enough you may be able to locate the walleye with the fish finder. If there is a school of baitfish, walleye will often sit just beneath them. This may alter your fish finder readings.

If you do find a school of baitfish, it won't hurt to drop your own lure. The walleye normally aren't too far away from the food. Odds may be in your favor this time around.

When visibility is low, you will want to pull out your dark and noisy lures. Walleye hear well and will be interested in many of the rattling lures. Darker colors are considered better in murky water because they provide contrast against the sea of brown.

Choose as realistic looking lures as possible. Walleye are going to be getting a pretty close view before they strike. They may not be as picky, but the muddy water hasn't made them that dumb.

Low-clarity water can make any day a slow day of walleye fishing. The fish are there and they probably are hungry. The trick is to find where they are waiting. You have to be flexible and willing to change your tactics when the water conditions have changed. The angler who is stuck on the tried and true ways of fishing for walleye is going home empty handed. When it comes to walleye fishing, change can be a good thing.
