Walleye Fishing Tip #1.
Basics: Always remember that the Walleye has better eyesight than most other fish. They will probably hunt more for their meal during darker or duller days than on bright sunlit days. They will also hunt more in shaded areas than in bright areas. They will generally go for brighter lures during darker times and duller lures during bright hours; they will generally go more for the duller lures in clear water and brighter lures in less clear water.
Walleye Fishing Tip #2
In the early spring, the Walleye are right close to shore or congregating around areas with sand like a sand bar or a Wild Rice bed with a sandy bottom. They will also be found in the weeds or around any rocks, which are close to an area with sand. The location of sand is very important because that’s where they spawn. They will also spawn in river current. At this time of year the Walleyes are very aggressive and will hit just about any lure.
Walleye Fishing Tip #3
If you want to fish with jigging spoons, use a 1/8 oz or ¼ oz spoon; I have found that white, yellow, or green colors have worked the best for me. You can put a tiny piece of worm on the jigging spoon to increase strikes but in early Spring it’s usually unnecessary.
Walleye Fishing Tip #4
In the spring, the smaller males stay shallow and close to the spawning area. The bigger females tend to take off into deeper water during the day. If you are looking for numbers during the day, jig in the shallow water. If you want to pick up bigger Walleyes, try going a few feet deeper but still in the same area.
Walleye Fishing Tip #5
You can cast or troll with lures along the shore and catch Walleyes. In my experience the trolling spoons have worked great since the digitally designed spoons came on the market. I now have thePelican yellow walleye spoon and the sardine spoon in my tackle bag. These worked wonders for me in clear water or on bright sunny mornings and evenings. During darker times or in less clear water my favorites were the pumpkin seed and the golden trout lures. Make sure you use the trolling spoons for trolling. They work much better for walleye since they are not as bright.
Walleye Fishing Tip #6
In the evening the big females start to come shallow whether it’s to return to their spawning beds or feed on minnows along the shore. Big Walleyes do get caught during the day but if you are looking for a 10-pound plus trophy, evening and night is your best chance. Troll really slow and really close to shore or along the weed lines with thePelican pumpkin or golden trout trolling spoon and have lots of line out. You may want to stop the boat and cast if you find a sand bar or sandy bottom that is within close proximity to the weeds that they hide in during the day. When casting make sure you change to a casting spoon. On bright clear evenings you could also expect success with a fire tiger spoon.
