Shoreline Walleye Fishing
How to Fish for Walleye From the Shoreline


Hey, Andrew Martinsen here. Firstly, you will need a great deal of patience when shoreline fishing for walleye. Although, they are undoubtedly there to be found and caught, you should not expect it to be easy or immediate. The walleye is a particularly reserved fish that will always attempt to avoid contact with humans. Subsequently, you may experience periods of frustration, but persistence will payoff in the end. Therefore, stillness and patience are fundamental components to a successful shoreline angler.

You do not need a lot of expensive equipment to fish for walleye from the shoreline. In fact, if you are new to angling, a moderately priced rod will suffice. Obviously, more experienced anglers will possess sophisticated kit, but expensive equipment is not necessary for learning the rudiments of shoreline fishing and catching a few decent sized walleye.

A good set-up is spin casting and a medium action rod. Alternatively, you may prefer a spinning reel with medium action rod. Both of this options offer simplicity in casting and retrieving. One of the great things about shoreline fishing is that you do not necessarily need a lot of tackle.

As mentioned above, the walleye as a shy creature, so it favors positions of shelter. With this in mind, it is a good idea to establish potential prime locations for the fish. In other words, sandbars, rock ledges, or sunken islands will all be hotspots for walleye activity.

In addition, it is a good idea to locate a walleye’s source of food. The walleye is notoriously hungry and many anglers find the prize catches by first establish where their dinner is. For example, from the shoreline, you may be able to see a section of water that is not flowing as quickly as the rest. This is known as a break in the water and is likely to be a spot where walleye’s feed. When fishing from the shoreline, another prime location to look for is a bend in the river or lake.

Particularly in the evenings, you may find that walleye are brought to the bank of the river, or lake, to feed. Therefore, you may like to try a first shoreline fishing experience at dusk. At this time of day, especially in the fall, walleye are not as elusive as they can be during the spring and summer. More often than not, if you play your cards right, you will find that the walleye will come to you.

When fishing along the shoreline, you may find that it is better to use a slow retrieve. Typically, the fish you find in the shallower waters will not be as feisty as the walleye from deep water. Therefore, cool and calm is the best demeanor to have. Once you have cast your line, it may be some time before you get a bite, so, remember to remain patient and you may be surprised by what you manage to catch.

Great fishing to you!,
