Andrew Martinsen's Walleye Fishing Update

Fishing for Walleyes in the Spring, Summer and Fall

Consistent Walleye Patterns that Can Increase Your Catch Rate

Walleyes are a popular choice of game fish for many reasons. To begin with they are fun to fish and taste delicious. They can be found across the United States and Canada in many of the lakes and rivers including the great Lakes.

There are a great number of techniques and methods of fishing for walleye which are often all effective in a certain situation. Techniques used in rivers often differ slightly than those used in lakes and again depending on the time of day.

Walleye are sensitive to sunlight and will retreat into deeper water for most of the sunlight hours. At dusk and dawn they return just below the surface to feed on baitfish. They love areas of structure and will often be found sticking close to weeds, rock formations, drop offs and banks.

Another factor that affects the kinds of methods you will find to be successful is the time of year. The fish behaves differently according to the season and the temperature of the water. When it is warmer the fish is very active but during the times of very cold water walleye become sluggish and lazy making it harder to encourage them to take the bait.

In the springtime you will find walleyes either in the current of a river or hugging up close to a shore. They will be looking for a suitable sandy area to spawn and will stay there until the time is right. At this time use a light jig, either 1/8th ounce or 1/16th ounce cast close to the shoreline using aggressive movements. This is the kind of movement the walleye expect to see form their bait and it is always beneficial to be realistic as possible. Bright colours such as red and yellow work best. It is the smaller males that you are likely to catch here, for the larger females you need go deeper.

During the summer they will all retreat slightly deeper but will remain close to rocky points and structure. During this time of year try using more neutral colours such as brown, black and silver. Also adjust to a slightly heavier jig to go deeper and consider using live minnows. On particularly hot days the fish can become lazy so adjust your movement accordingly. When feeling sluggish they are more likely to go for something moving slowly across the floor of the river rather than attempting to grab something quickly.

Fishing for walleye in the fall is best at night. In the day they tend to move into open waters and it can be difficult to locate them. Between 10pm and 3am they are more likely to return to the shores and come closer to the surface. Troll past rocky shorelines with an Original Floating Rapala for best results.
