Find Out Where and How to Catch Walleye From Shore

The feeding and spawning cycles of walleye can greatly increase your success rate when shore walleye fishing. With the changing seasons walleye will move positions in both lakes and rivers and knowing where to look will greatly increase the likelihood of a good catch.

During spring stay shallow near sandy bottomed areas as the males will hang around to protect the spawning youngsters, and because of this they will attack brightly colored jigs and lures either for protection or hunger. Smaller jigs and lighter lures prove better here as the males near the shore are small.

During the spring, wlleye are very aggressive, and even those who are not feeding will often hit the jig in defense. Retrieval should be more aggressive near the warmer, shallower banks. This is where worms will prove themselves as rather effective bait. Sand bottomed areas with reeds and weeds close to the shore are the best locations, roughly 2 - 3 feet deep. Should you wish to try for the larger females who will head into deeper waters during the daytime, then aim more toward a depth of 15 foot.

In summer walleye will seek out the coolest spots. In still waters walleye stay deep, and won't likely move upwards till night and can more often be found at rocky points with a sudden drop-off. With hotter weather try casting where the mouth of a river leads into a lake as the walleye will want to move to deeper, cooler waters. Casting both into the river side and the lake side will offer a greater chance of success. You are more likely to catch smaller males near the shore as the larger females like to gather in the open water. Natural colored jigs will prove more fruitful at this time of year, and heavier jigs of around 3/8oz - 1/4oz should be used depending of course on how deep you are fishing. Using salted minnows as bait will send hungry walleye crazy.

During fall walleye will want to migrate away from the now toxic dying weeds, and heading upstream to deep river pools will increase your chances. Here it is best to use a float with either worms or minnows as jigs can often become snagged which can be extremely frustrating. Alternatively many walleye will head for open waters and become static. When the atmospheric pressure is low they may cease feeding all together. In this case wait until the pressure starts rising and the ravenous walleye will begin to feed more aggressively again.

Winter is a slow and lazy time for walleye. Before they begin their journey upstream they can be found in rocky and sandy areas near the currents edge of unfrozen rivers. During winter they will move much slower, and to avoid scaring them away your baits and jigs should move slower too. The biggest trick at this time of year is to find spots where walleye are lurking, and using a minnow rig that is slowly dragged over an area will easily determine if there are any walleye around.
