Lake Walleye Fishing Tips

Equipment to Use for Lake Walleye Fishing

Residents of the midwest have an abundance of choices with lakes teeming with many an angler's dream: the walleye. You can catch scores of walleye if you have the right technique, tactics and equipment.

Most anglers would agree that spinner rigs are priceless in the pursuit of the walleye. In particular, a spinner used in conjunction with a bottom bouncer is often successful. The spinner rig is a wonderful tool when fishing for walleye, because it provides you with versatility in the speed that you fish the lake. Especially if you are fishing the lake during the spawning period, when the fish can be very aggressive, a spinner rig is invaluable. When using your spinner at high speeds, a willow leaf blade is the best blade to use, as it will cope with the speed far better than the smaller blades.

Because the walleye spends much of its time in the deeper waters and the lakebed, a bottom bouncer is a must-have tool for any angler looking to catch some lake walleye. In addition, the bottom bouncer offers a great deal of coverage, as you can use it to fish below or behind your boat.

If you are fishing during the winter, when the walleye are much less active, you will want to use your spinner at a slow speed. When employing this technique, you may find it beneficial to use a metal clevis and cupped blades. Remember, the smaller the blade is, the more ease of movement you will be offered at low speed.

Generally, the walleye in large lakes can be fast movers, subsequently, inexperienced anglers can often encounter problems with their line becoming twisted and tangled. Therefore, if you are new to lake walleye fishing, you may like to consider using ball barrel swivels to reduce the likelihood of this problem. It is also a good idea to purchase some good-quality sturdy lines that will serve you well for years to come.

In addition, the manner in which you hook your bait can affect the twisting of your line. Although the walleye favors live bait, a wriggling leech can cause problems with your line. Therefore, some anglers prefer to use a dead leech and hook it through the tail to prevent the line from twisting. Similarly, when hooking a minnow the head is the best place.

When fishing the lake at low speeds the leech is possibly your best baiting option. The walleye is notoriously opportunistic and even a lethargic fish is likely to find the prospect of a big fat leech very appealing. However, if you discover a high concentration of walleye that are very active and aggressive, a leech will not be an effective bait to use. In this instance, a minnow is an advisable option.

Alternatively, night crawlers, which are another favorite on the walleye?s menu, can also be used. Many anglers use night crawlers when trolling sections of lake, which can be an extremely effective method.

You may also wish to invest in sonar equipment, which is used by numerous seasoned anglers. The benefits of such equipment cannot be denied, but, bear in mind, it is not necessary to spend a lot of money to catch good-quality lake walleye.
