Andrew Martinsen's Walleye Fishing Update


Mastering the Walleye Chop
Scoring Nice Walleye When There's A Nice Breeze


Hey, Andrew Martinsen here. Walleye chop occurs when the winds are between five and fifteen miles per hour, and these winds cause the water to become rough with smaller waves.

During these windy conditions, the Walleye will usually go into a feeding frenzy and you may catch your limit in a short time.

There are a number of reasons why these fish will feed in Walleye chop.

The rough waters lower the amount of light that can penetrate the water, so the Walleye are more active and do not hide.

The wind and waves present in Walleye chop add oxygen to the water, and this can also be one reason why the Walleye become more active.

The movement of the water will also stir up the bottom, and the smaller bait fish and other natural food sources for Walleye in the water will be stirred up as well.

This can cause the smaller fish to become disoriented, so that they are much easier prey for the Walleye.

There are some tips and techniques that can be helpful when you are fishing for Walleye and Walleye chop is present.

This will help your line stay straight and steady:

If the wind is very strong or the water is extremely rough, you may want to use a larger jig head if you are jigging, and add more weight regardless of the lure or technique.

Weed beds can be a good place to look if you are fishing for Walleye in windy conditions, and you can aggressively jig around the outer edges and then work your way over the top of the weed bed to pull out any Walleye hidden in the center.

Walleye also move closer to shore when Walleye chop is present, because this is where the bait fish swarm and where all the activity takes place.

Troll the areas between weed beds and the shore, using crankbaits or a crawler harness with live or artificial bait attached. If the wind and Walleye chop are very strong, the Walleye will leave the weeds because of all of the commotion.

These fish do not like it when things touch or bump them, so they will either move out of the weed bed towards the shore or they will move upwards and try to suspend above the weeds until the wind and waves calm down some.

If the wind and the waves become too strong, look for areas that are protected from the wind naturally, so that the severity of the wind and rough waves are lessened some.

There are also other areas where the Walleye may go to escape turbulent waters as well, such as coves or underwater shelves.

When Walleye chop is present, the Walleye will generally become more active and feed, and offering a variety of baits and presentations can help you make the most of this exciting activity.

Great fishin to you!,
