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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
