Seasonal Domination

Catching Huge Walleye in All 4 Seasons

For many the walleye is the king of North America's lakes and streams. Catching this crafty fish is the stuff the best tall tales are made of. Known for its uncanny knack at nibbling on bait and getting away, when one of these fish happens to get caught, it can be a real rush for an angler. Add to that the fact these little creatures are the delight of many a culinary dish, and the reasons they are so highly sought after become clear.

The tactics to use for fishing walleye will vary depending on the season in question.

Walleye anglers will find that these fish tend to be most prevalent in the freshwaters of the Midwest and the Northeast, but they are also found in most states to some degree. They tend to be best fished in freshwater lakes during most seasons, but can also be found in streams and rivers, especially during the spring spawning season.

The tactics to use in fishing walleye will vary depending on season. One tactic, however, tends to remain strong no matter what. The key in actually hooking these fish lies in making sure the bait in question can be inhaled by the fish since this is its favored eating mode. If resistance on the line is too high or something blocks a clean inhalation, the walleye will move on in most cases, or it will perform a slash action to get a piece of bait without getting hooked.

The seasonal tips for reeling in walleye include:
  • Early summertime fishing is prime. This is the most common time of year for open season on walleye. Crankbaits, worms and jigs and especially live minnows tend to be the most favored baits of choice for this time of year. Look to the shallows of a lake in the early mornings or late evenings. As the sun heats up, move into deeper depths to find walleye.

  • Spring time. The recommended baits for spring fishing remain the same as summer, but walleye are more commonly found in the shallows or medium depths as this is spawning season. Fall. Spoons get added to the bait list for this time of year, but the fishing patterns for summer stand firm.

  • Winter. Fishing walleye during this season can be very tricky but still very doable. Although the baits are the same, the truth is these fish aren't as active in the winter. It will take a gentle hand to hook a walleye in the colder months.

Walleye make for some great fishing any time of year that's in-season, but they can be more than a challenge for the new angler. Knowing where to look and what tactics to employ can give you an edge.
