Fishing for Walleyes that are On Structure

Marking a large group of walleye can get any angler's blood pumping, but it can be frustrating when, despite the numbers, you only get a few bites. Suspended fish can add an undesirable degree of difficulty to a day of fishing. There are few tricks you can use that will help get the walleye out of their stupor and onto your hook.

The first thing to do is determine where the active fish are. Determining exact depth can be accomplished several ways. If you are trolling, you can use a combination of downriggers and planar boards to test different depths. Crankbaits are an ideal choice when trolling, especially in big waters. Keep your speeds low, but not so slow that the artificial lures don?t work properly. Make sure you keep track of the number of strikes you get and what depth they occurred at. This will help you determine which depth to focus your efforts at.

If you are jigging, slip bobbers are the tools of choice for determining precise depth. Slip bobbers are great for picking apart depths no matter what the environment is. These handy devices come in a variety of sizes and materials. Balsa and hard foam have been used for a long time; balsa is more sensitive and easier to cast while hard foam is more durable. A newer, soft foam slip bobber is gaining popularity because it both is durable and easy to cast. It can also be trimmed to make it even more sensitive.

Once you have determined where the active walleye are, target that depth. When trolling, keep the bait at or just slightly above fish level. When suspended, walleye don?t want to have to go to far out of their comfort zone. Play around with speeds until you find which one gets the walleye eager.

If the walleye are sticking close to the bottom, try working your jig across the bottom. Cast out beyond the fish and drag it back to you. Give it a shake every now and then to get rid of any weeds or mud. Keep your jig motions slow and subtle. Your jigs can be longer in the morning since the fish are most likely to be aggressive. As the day wanes, add a piece of worm or salted minnow to your method for a more enthusiastic response from the walleye.

Sometimes, it?s the little things that make a big difference to walleye. If you find the bite slow despite your precision targeting, it might be time to mix things up. Color is one of the easiest changes to make. In the summer, walleye seem to respond better to natural colors like brown, black, white and silver, but don?t discount the flashier colors. Experiment with the color wheel until you find a pattern that is appealing.

Size also matters when it comes to walleye. Matching the size of the natural prey is always a good rule of thumb, but going slightly bigger or smaller is often enough to persuade the walleye to strike. If the fish are active, just not overly interested, give each new presentation about twenty minute before making an alteration.

Marking a large group of fish is a good start, but sometimes it takes a bit more effort to get walleye to bite. Suspended walleye are fickle and hard to entice. Placing the bait at their level and experimenting with presentation may be all it takes to get more fish in boat.
