  • Use a lindy rig bottom bouncer. Tip this rig with either a smelt, small minnow, or leech.

  • From spring to early fall Erie Dearies, lindy rigs, and vibrax spinners tipped with a worm are good.

  • In the fall use minnows and crankbaits.

  • On the ice it's jigs, jigging spoons. and jigging rapalas.

  • Walleye are low light condition feeders, and fishing success is traditionally best during the periods between dusk to dawn.

  • Lure color patterns for specific conditions include silver and blue for bright skies, fire tiger or clown for stained water, and black and gold for cloudy days or a low sun angle.

  • Walleyes spawn just after "ice out" when water temperatures reach 45-50 degrees. Following spawning, males feed heavily. Females, however, rest for about two weeks, then go on a feeding binge. This is the best time to land a wall hanger.

  • Walleyes will lie in wait for the river current to bring them food. Many times these durrents will deposit sand, gravel or debris on one or both sides of the channel. When fishing from a boat, these provide excellent places to anchor while casting to the deep channel.

  • River fishing requires a you to seek out deep holes that contain large rocks or sunken logs. Tip the spinner with a nightcrawler and cast upstream as far as possible, letting the spinner fall back into the holding area following the natural flow of the current. Twitch the spinner lightly as you begin a slow
    retrieve.

  • Weedbeds near lake inlets any time of the year, but especially on a cool summer evening, these weeds can provide lots of action.

  • When the walleye are deep and hugging the bottom as they often are in the warm summer days, use a bottom Bouncer and crawler harness.


  • Active walleyes will often move surprisingly shallow when they’re on the feed at night, and the noise from even a small outboard can sometimes spook the fish. It’s easier to follow irregular weedlines and drop-offs with an electric motor. The moving walley will travel along structure breaks and an electric trolling motor allows you to have precise control.

  • Walleye are very sensitive to light. During the day, they will hang around dock structures or along weed lines, sometimes in depths over 50 feet. During the night, they will come up and feed only a few feet from the surface. During the night, they are likely to head towards artificial light sources that often attract smaller fish.

  • Although walleyes have excellent night vision, you still want to make it as easy as possible for them to find your bait by isomg  a slow, steady retrieve with a big crankbait.
