Michigan Fishing Frenzy

Tips for Walleye Fishing in Michigan

Spawning season is a prime time for anglers. The walleye of Michigan spawn in the spring and, when possible, they will typically re-locate to feeder streams during this period. However, where they are unable to migrate, they will attempt to find a shallow bar, or clean stretch of riverbed close to deep waters. Throughout the rest of the year, the walleye is notoriously shy and retreats to locations of darkness and safety. This is something that you may wish to consider before venturing out in search of walleye.


During the spring, while the walleye is spawning, it is advisable to fish in moderately shallow waters. Shallow bars, ledges and points are all prime locations for the walleye to inhabit during these months. In the spring, most anglers recommend using crankbaits, plastic worms and jigs.

In the summer, anglers in Michigan often fish between sunset and midnight. Typically, walleye are found in the shallows at sunrise and sunset. However, during the heat of the day they will retreat to deeper water. To establish the depth, it is a good idea to follow rocky structures or points into the deeper waters. The recommended is similar to that used in the spring, but you may like to consider using a lures that resemble crawfish, as this will almost certainly attract a walleye.

A walleye?s movements during the fall are very similar to those of the summer. The fish will begin the day in the shallows and move deeper as the sun rises. Again, the bait required is the same. However, you may also wish to use small spoons during the fall.

The principal difference in fishing for walleye in the winter is that they are much less active. The cold temperatures will make the fish more lethargic. Therefore, it is advisable to offer your bait slowly to make it easier for the walleye to grab. As with the summer and fall, the winter walleye spend the middle of the day in deeper waters. Anglers recommend using spoons, plastic worms and jigs during the winter months.

How to Find Walleye

Because the walleye spends the majority of its time in deep waters, many professional anglers will use sonar equipment to locate their catch. However, if you would like to find walleye the old-fashioned way, it is best to start at dawn and begin fishing the shallow sections of water. Then gradually move into deeper water as the day progresses. As mentioned above, many anglers advocate fishing at night, when the walleye are less likely to be wary. Unfortunately, there is no magic formula to finding Michigan walleye and sometimes they can prove to be very elusive customers. Therefore, you might find it helpful to check the fishing report for the specific lake or river that you have chosen to fish in, which should provide you with the prime locations for walleye.
