Andrew Martinsen's Walleye Fishing Secrets

Catching More Walleye Off Of Bottom Content Irregularities

Hi, Andrew Martinsen here. Once you and your fish finder find some choice spots, you can return often and usually find walleye there. The next order of business is getting the bait to them in the best possible manner. You probably have all the tricks in your tackle box of knowledge; you may just have to alter your approach a little.

If you spot areas along the bottom where the content changes, this is a prime area where walleyes like to hang out. When you locate this irregularity, drive it with your boat to locate where the fish are.

Shallow flats are popular haunts for walleye because they warm relatively fast. Walleyes may like cooler temperatures but the bait fish they like to eat thrives on warm waters with plenty of food. They are also obvious spots for every other angler to hit. These spots will have an abundance of fellow anglers on them pretty quickly

Large featureless flats do not see a lot of action because most anglers are focused on locating structure. It is pretty common to find walleye perusing these spots. These shallow bays can hold large numbers in their warm waters. Walleye usually spread out and don't hold any set pattern.

Long lining and planer boards both work well in these areas. Since the walleye are sitting shallow they will spook as your boat passes. Planer boards and long lining provides a buffer that allots enough time for the walleye to settle. Drop your speed and switch to a trolling motor as well.

Occasionally, you may find a nice group of walleye hanging around a slight bump or sunken area in the bay. Casting is ideal because it lets you cover an entire area without having to get disturbingly close to the pocket. Make sure to target your cast beyond the group and retrieve slowly back through the group.

Walleyes like humps or sunken islands as well. Bait fish can get cover and access to a readily available food source. They will hang around as long as the dining is fine. Walleyes have roughly the same idea with a different entr?e on the plate.

If the wind is blowing, the walleye will stay on the side that receives the most direct wind. The wind will disrupt any penetrating sunlight as well as disorient the bait fish. If the sun is shiny and bright, the walleye will move to the side that provides the best shade. Use the weather as a guide to find the best place to start looking.

Trolling is effective but not always practical in shallow waters. Casting from a boat or wading in usually works no matter where you are fishing. If you do wade in be sure to not get to close; you want to be just close enough to make a decent cast.

In normal weather you can target your cast beyond the group and retrieve it slowly back to you. If the wind is blowing you will want to make it work with you not against you. Stand up wind and cast into the wind. Allowing the wind to drift the bait over and through the hump makes a very natural presentation. Slip bobbers are a very nice choice when presenting this way.

Bumps, humps, or shallow flats can all be places that walleye are at. Once you can figure out where they are getting them shouldn't be too hard. Chances are you already have the gear and know-how. Now you just need to apply it.
