When to Fish the Shoreline for Walleye


The walleye is a ferocious creature to many smaller fish. If you are looking to bag yourself a trophy walleye, then you may like to consider fishing the shoreline in the evenings.

When the sun begins to fade, walleye typically emerge from the depths of a river, or lake, to feed. This is when they are most likely to be found at the shoreline, where they are prime candidates to become your catch of the day.

During the evenings, it is not uncommon to find small groups of walleye hunting for emerald shiners and gizzard shad predominantly. Therefore, they can be found in river channels open water or drop-offs. So, it is the perfect opportunity for some shoreline fishing.

Many anglers assert that the best time of year to fish for walleye from the shoreline is the fall, from October to mid-November. During these weeks, walleye are frequently found along the shoreline of waters, such as Lake Erie.

It is advisable to assess the water that you are fishing and select areas, such as shallow structures, to focus on. It is also a good idea to keep an eye on the baitfish, because wherever the food goes, the walleye will not be far behind. In the fall, you are likely to find plentiful supplies of baitfish along the shoreline.

One thing a shoreline angler will need to keep his, or her, eye on is the wind. Unfortunately, an on-shore wind will not encourage the fish as much as an offshore wind. So, a little patience may be required. In fact, you may find it beneficial to make the most of your shoreline fishing during the comparatively still fall evenings, as this is when you will achieve the most success.

A fundamental aspect of shoreline fishing in the fall is that you equip yourself with a slow presentation, because the walleye are likely to be close to the surface or in very shallow water. Therefore, a large crankbait with a long cast and a stealthy retrieve is recommended. Although walleye are known for their excellent night vision, it is a good idea to make your bait as overtly attractive as possible.

On the other hand, a stop and go retrieve can also be successful. However, the stop ceases the vibration, which may cause the walleye to believe that the food has been eaten or has escaped. Similarly, it is wise to use a lure, because the vibration of this can be sensed by the walleye's lateral line. While the walleye is searching for its dinner, it is a good idea to entice it in anyway you can.

The beauty of shoreline fishing during October and November is that an angler does not have to do much chasing. As long as you have the correct presentation, you can attract the walleye to you. Once you discover a method that works for you, you can catch numerous walleye from the shoreline.
