Andrew Martinsen's Walleye Fishing Update


Getting Bites from the Banks
The Best Baits to Use when Shoreline Fishing for Walleye


Andrew Martinsen here, hope you're doing well. Live bait is usually the most effective bait for walleye, hands down. Some anglers avoid live bait because of the added challenge of keeping the bait alive. If walleye are in shallow enough water that the angler can reach them from the shore, then they are typically on the hunt for a meal.

Nothing is more appealing to a hungry walleye than live bait. Minnows are the top bait choice of walleye and anglers alike. Three to six inch minnows match the size of the natural forage fish the best. Walleye will also go for night crawlers and leeches if they are in the mood.

Casting can also be successful with artificial lures. Jigs, crankbaits and swimbaits all do very well when cast from the shore. The type of lure that works best will depend on the mood of the angler and the walleye.

Jigs are by far the most popular bait for shoreline casting. These lures come in a variety of sizes, colors and textures that can please the palette of the most finicky walleye. They are relatively inexpensive bait as well. Losing a jig to a snap or snag doesn't hurt the wallet as much.

Crankbaits are a walleye angler's favorite weapon. No tackle box is complete without a few of these on hand. Crankbaits create a lot of action that mimics forage fish action. The available sizes and colors help an angler to match the look of the natural forage fish as closely as possible.

Swimbaits are an old lure but certainly not past their prime. This particular bait is called soft bait. The body of a swimbait is made from molded plastic and will squish in a walleye's mouth. This reduces the chance of the fish spitting the bait out before the angler can set the hook.

Swimbait for walleye comes in two popular styles. The pre-rigged style lets the angler use the swimbait straight out of the box. The jig is molded into the swimbait during production.

The other type of swimbait comes separate from the jig head. Anglers need to rig the swimbait and jig head together before they can cast it out. The swimbait won't run true if rigged incorrectly. On the plus side, the angler can change and reuse their jig heads in any way they want.

Swimbaits come in more natural colors than other bait. There are brighter colors available for fishing murky waters. Swimbaits also come with tails that give off vibrations in the water. Walleye don't usually ignore the siren's call of a swimbait.

Shoreline fishing for walleye can be a great way to spend the day. Without a boat to worry about, an angler can just sit back and enjoy the time fishing. By taking along a few choice baits, the shoreline angler can be a happy angler with a string of walleye to their name.
