Andrew Martinsen's Walleye Fishing Update

Lake Michigan Walleye Spots

Beautiful Scenery with an Abundance of Walleye

Walleye favor a habitat with structures of rocks and weeds and varying depths, making Lake Michigan the perfect environment for walleye to grow and thrive. Young walleye eat mainly plankton but as they get bigger, they will eat just about anything.

They do, however prefer small fish and minnows are the favored food substance. Walleye can be found in the lake all year round, however in the springtime many will migrate to the feeder streams to begin spawning.

During this time, (March-April), some of the best walleye fishing spots on Lake Michigan are around the mouth of the Escanaba, Tacoosh, Whitefish and Days Rivers. You should find the fish to be quite aggressive and will go for almost any kind of bait. In the early morning and late afternoon try fishing close the surface around areas of sand and weed. In the daytime the fish are more likely to be found deeper under the water to avoid sunlight and stay in water of the optimal temperature. Shad Raps have been used successfully during this period of spawning, as have small jigs, crankbaits and spoons.

Saginaw Bay and Little Bay de Noc on Lake Michigan are both popular walleye fishing spots where anglers are successful all year round. The upper portion of Little Bay de Noc is home to an abundance of fish and is known for its trophy walleye. If you are on the hunt for trophy walleye, your best chance of catching one is late evening and into the night. It is at this time the fish will come closer to the surface to feed. Having said that though, it is possible to make a catch at any time of the day you just have to vary the depth of water in which you are looking and the technique that you are using.

When the water is warmer and fish are more active a simple jig with a plastic tip will usually be enough to encourage the fish to bite. However when the water is cold or if you are finding the fish to be inactive try using live bait such as worms or leeches. Although there are some methods that can be recommended (crankbaits are hard to fault as they resemble the small fish that walleye eat naturally), every angler has his or her favored technique and lure and its largely down to experimentation and what method you have had success with in the past.

Purple lures have always been a popular color to use when fishing for walleye with a high success rate. However, biologists have found that the most visible colours for these fish include red, orange and yellow. Of course it is important the fish can see the lure so that they will be tempted to go for it. Another reason why the clear waters of Lake Michigan have so many great walleye fishing spots.
