Walleye Spots to Hit in Michigan

Where to Find the Great Lake State Walleye

Michigan is an aquatic paradise for any water lover. Along with access to four of the five Great Lakes, Michigan also sports its own abundance of rivers and interior lakes. Michigan is definitely the place to hit when you are hunting for walleye.

Like any typical walleye, Michigan walleye have reproduction on the brain in spring. Whenever possible, walleye will head inland looking for prime spawning beds. Feeder streams are often ideal places to hunt for early season walleye.

Walleye will usually move inland until something blocks their path. If migration is hindered, walleye will seek out shallow bars or riverbeds. Look for shallow areas, ledges or points located near deep drop offs. While males will start patrolling spawning beds early, the big ladies won't come out of the deep end until they are ready to lay eggs.

As summer heats up the water, walleye will stay deep during the day. The prime time to hit Michigan walleye is typically between sunset and midnight. This may not fit your fishing plan so look for rocky structures or points during daylight fishing. Lures that resembles crawfish are a big hit with the Michigan walleye crowd.

Michigan shares shores with Lakes Erie, Michigan, Huron and Superior. The Great Lakes are prime walleye waters for several reasons. They have the cool water temperatures that walleye like. There is also plenty of cover and fodder. If trolling the big lakes doesn't suit you, you may want to move inland for some great walleye action.

Pine River currently holds the state record for the biggest walleye reeled in. The big walleye are obviously in there. Other anglers are also aware of this distinction. The competition at Pine River can get a little steep.

Hubbard Lake is one of the biggest inland lakes in Michigan. It covers nearly 9000 acres. This lake is a popular spot both with anglers and casual vacationers. Even the semi-pro walleye tour schedules a stop at this lake. Early morning and late evening hours are probably the best time to hit this lake.

Despite the respectable population of walleyes in Hubbard Lake, catching them here is a challenge. Hubbard Lake has pretty clear water. Walleye will go deep in search of the dark cover that they like best when the sun is high. Doctor's or Churchill Points are prime spots to haunt especially in spring.

North Lake Leelanau is considered prime real estate for walleye. The spawning and feeding conditions are nearly perfect which helps yield bigger walleye. This lake has sloping flats located in the southern portion. This provides ideal spawning beds for the reproductively minded walleye.

Come summer, the walleye at North Lake Leelanau will head to deeper, more open waters. Locating them becomes a bigger challenge. Keep an eye out for rainbow smelt. The walleye won't be too far away from this favorite meal.

If you are heading farther north, Lake Gogebic is the lake to hit in the Upper Peninsula. It covers over 12,000 acres. The walleye normally congregate in the east section during early spring. When summer takes root the walleye head for the weed beds and drop-offs.

No matter where you are in Michigan, there are some great spots to fish for walleye. These lakes offer many great opportunities and should make the cut on your trip itinerary. North, south, east or west; it is easy to "Say Yes" to some great Michigan walleye fishing.
