Walleye Fishing Tips

Learning About The Best Walleye Fishing Tips

Since when I was a kid, me and my fishing buddies have been walleye fishing maniacs!

Since those days, we have tried every new rigging method, color, all the top lures and every walleye fishing tip and technique developed just to catch this fish.

Even though, for many people, having all of these different fishing methods and tackle thrown at them at once would be quite confusing, I will tell you just what you need to know when selecting the top 10 best walleye lures for your tackle box.

Boat control – The Most Basic Walleye Fishing Tip

Why get all the right tools and best walleye lures on the planet – if you’re swirling in the same circle like a dog on ice?

If you want a good tip to catch walleye, it’s this: you will need to learn how to keep the bait at the right depth, speed and location.

Use the wind and the boat motor in order to control your boat’s position.

On the first day of your fishing trip it is important to write down the details about your successful fishing locations. Slap them down on a piece of paper so you come visiting this fishing spot again – and go quickly to the catching for the rest of your fishing vacation!

Also, keep a record of the successful speeds and depths you caught the walleye. I like to keep track of the weather too, but I am pretty serious about how to catch walleye, not just fish for them!

Go Sonar

Your sonar unit is not there to watch you sip your cold beverage, so use it son!

You can easily find drop-offs, rocks and weeds that can hold fish. On top of that, your sonar or fish-finder will also help you with marking individual walleye in deeper waters and schools of baitfish.

If you learn how to use it like your old man, then ‘damn my beard’ you’ll catch a lot of walleye!

Comfort And Food (Not Yours)

Son, you learned nothing if you don’t remember that food and comfort are the two main concerns of a walleye.

The food source is generally affected by weed growth and water temperature and will point to the places where the walleye can be found.

These are very valuable walleye fishing tips, so engrave them on your boat!

Daylight, wind and weather will also affect the places where the walleye can be found.

Always open your eyes to what’s happening around you and note down patterns that produce fish.


Get Your Crank-Baits Straight

There are hundreds of Crankbaits out there, and through years of trial and error, I’ve come down to my favorite top 5 best crank baits ever created, and if you use use the right one for each situation, these you will have great results.

The majority of the top crankbait lures made from balsa or plastic. The best lures that imitate small fishes remarkably well when pulled through the water at the right speed.

Don’t forget son that crank-baits that have a long lip will dive deeper than those with shorter lips. The long lip crankbaits are better for summertime walleye fishing, while these here short-lip crankbaits are better for spring walleye fishing when the water is colder.

Before you will get the best walleye lure for this location, you may have to try a few different lures. You will first of all need to have an open mind and you don’t have to rely on your old techniques and habits exclusively.

Respect Your Crankbaits

The Best Walleye Lures are high quality crank-baits. If you use them carefully and maintain them very well, they will last for years. They are the ones that allow you to catch your favorite fish maybe and ensure you get the catch you need each day.
The last of my Walleye Fishing Tips for today – double check your equipment before and after you arrive at your fishing spot: sharpen the lure hooks, replace the line if not in excellent condition and check to see if the reels and rods work as they should. Good luck fishing for walleye son!


Casting For Walleye From Shore

Part of reeducatin’, and sometimes just plain educatin’, Frank on the fine art of walleye fishin’ includes the topic of casting for walleye from shore.

He is frighteningly underprepared for this activity, but I aim to fix all that. Besides, this way I ain’t gotta pay for gas for the boat. Frank’s first mistake is that he tosses his lure out there and then wiggles it around. I told him, you’ve got to let it do its thing slowly.

Them rapid movements clue the walleye in that there’s a predator on the other end of that lure. They ain’t stupid, these fish, and you gotta treat ‘em as if they know what’s up.

If you know where to find walleye, then the key is to cast your line into areas where the walleyes gather, near underwater rocks and stuff so they can hide. Then use your walleye lure to draw ‘em out with slow and steady movements.

Before you know it, you’ve caught a mess of walleye in the spring and fall, just by casting from shore.

Trolling for Walleye

Frank decided on this last trip that he wants to go trolling for walleye in a boat next time.

Boy howdy, is he in for a treat or what? He heard about it while we were gettin’ some bait up at the Bait N Tackle, and he got all excited about it. Some of the boys have caught some huge walleyes by trolling.

Frank asked what line is too big for walleye trolling? Merv told him he needs to get him some longer rods and some thinner line, because them walleyes, they can see stuff normal fish just can’t.

Then Frank asks – where are we going to troll for them, and we reminded him about how we know where to find walleye, and how we already have our shore lunch spot planned out!

We’ll also need some of that stretchy fishing line, or that new fireline, so the fish don’t break it. He’s not used to this, but we’ll hafta let out a lot of line behind the boat and if we don’t run with the wind then we’ll get blown all over that lake.

I’m lookin’ forward to seein’ Frank’s face the first time one of those big walleyes takes a hit at his line.
