Alternating Walleye Presentations

When and How to Change Your Presentation

When you're out fishing and the sonar is showing a healthy helping of walleye, it doesn't always equate to the fish being eager to take the bait. When the bite is slow, it's a good time to be aggressive and explore the entire water. Keep an eye out for large groups of big fish suspended just below smaller fish. This is a usually a reliable indicator of walleye that are on the hunt.

Drop your initial presentation in the water a few times in order to get a feel of the fish. Pay attention to the reaction you are receiving. Sometimes walleye will strike so lightly that it is easy to miss. If you get no response at all, mark the spot so that you can return later. Even a few mediocre hits are a good sign that the walleye are interested. Now, you just need to find the combination that will incite an enthusiastic strike.

The key to alternating you presentation is to start with small changes and work your way up. Color is one of the easiest and most effective ways to jazz up you lure. Adding colored beads or even colored hooks can be the slight change that makes a huge difference. If color doesn't work, you might want to play around with size. Just remember bigger isn't always better. Lures that are bigger than the typical baitfish can be a turn off for walleye. Make you size alterations gradual until you find the most appealing size of the day.

Noise and action are next on the list of change-ups. Cranks and spinners require a more active method like trolling or casting in order to be effective. Make sure you match your method to your presentation. Jigging, drifting, trolling and casting all have their advantages but they need to be paired with the right bait in order to get the best results.

If you feel confident that you have marked an active group of fish, give each new presentation about twenty minutes before making a change. Once again, pay attention to the line so that you can gauge the reaction. The walleye will let you know what they like if you pay close enough attention.

If you are not sure about the activity of the group you've marked, than you can be more aggressive in you alternations. Being timid about making changes can result in a lot of missed opportunities. This especially applies to ice fishing. You should be rotating around your holes and changing the bait about every five minutes. Time is of the essence in winter and the walleye are at their most picky. During the other seasons, you can give each new presentation between five and ten minutes. If the fish aren't biting, don't be afraid to make changes or even move on to more promising locations. There is a lot that we understand about walleye behavior. With a little research and experience, you can hit the waters with a great arsenal of perfect presentations. Even if you are prepared, it doesn't mean the walleye are going to react as expected. When it comes to walleye fishing, remaining adaptable can go a long ways toward the outcomes you desire.
