New to walleyes

6 posts in this topic

I am very new to walleye fishing. Can anyone help me as to what the best presentation would be this time off year? I know that rocks usually are a good bet.

Help!

This is a broad question and in most cases, too broad. Read through the link below and then ask more specific questions as they come up. Much of what you're after depends on how you're set up and where you're fishing.

That is a very broad question and what works best as far as depths and presentation will also vary by what lake/river you plan on fishing.

I've had some fairly good luck lately casting crank baits in shallow (3-4 fow)then pulling them back out slowly to 12-15 feet of water. I've been doing this all after dark. not having much luck during the day light hours right now. I am by no means a walleye expert. just one thing you could try. my best luck has been on a blue and silver Rap. Most of the fish I been catching bite almost right after I start to retreive the lure so be ready right away.Good luck in your fishing.

Another recommendation that may be the easiest is to stop by a bait shop close to the lake you are fishing and ask them what/how/where/when they are catching walleye on local lakes.

They are typically pretty helpful and can be more specific. Every lake is different so this route may help with eliminting the guess work. Or if you can afford it, take a friend and hire a guide to show you the ropes.

Good Luck!

Just don't be in too much of a hurry, it'll come to you. That's the fun part! I've met a real good tournie walleye fisherman once who'd told me that sometimes knowing too much can at times be a crutch. I will share this with ya, once you get started it'll be hard to stop!

    • You would get what you deserve if he does do what he says he's going to do. You would get to pay for a wall, probably watch your children or grandchildren go to war, pay for his infrastructure spending, you'll still get some kind of government sponsored healthcare, more gun control and I can only imagine what else.
    • You don't seem to get it at all. It's all about what these candidates stand for. If trump would completely change his stances (again) to be closer to what the Libertarians stand for then yes you may have a point. With his current views I would not be a Trump supporter and would hope he would have no way of gaining the Libertarian party nomination. 
    • But yet you can't answer PF's question. If you can't think of any you admire, why should he be able to? That question is like the infamous, "If you could be a tree, what kind of tree would you be?" Stupid questions don't deserve an answer. At least he didn't say Putin.  
    • OK, here is your big chance to get some land away from the evil state government and back into private hands.    And help out the schools and fight cronyism at the same time.    (the requirement you need to be there to bid is clearly a crony deal in my opinion) The Department of Natural Resources will sell 40 northern Minnesota parcels in three public oral bid auctions in October and November. Tuesday, Oct. 25 – Nine northwestern Minnesota parcels will be auctioned at the County Administration Building in Bemidji. Thursday, Oct. 27 – 27 northeastern Minnesota parcels will be auctioned at the Lake County Courthouse in Two Harbors. Thursday, Nov. 3 – Four parcels in north-central Minnesota will be auctioned at DNR Brainerd area office. The properties include unimproved recreational land and residential lakeshore parcels in Aitkin, Cass, Clearwater, Cook, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Itasca, Lake, and St. Louis counties. There is a wide range of sizes and land uses in this selection of sales, from a small 0.80 acre former water access site on Pine Lake in Clearwater County to a 200-acre recreational parcel in Breitung Township in northeastern St. Louis County. The DNR regularly sells land which is no longer needed for its original conservation purpose, after a thorough internal review, and after giving state agencies and local governments opportunities to purchase the land. Proceeds from sales of lands the DNR had once acquired go to the DNR division that had managed the land and are used to purchase and develop lands better suited to that division’s conservation goals. Many of the parcels to be sold are School Trust lands. Proceeds from these auction sales are deposited to a fund that benefits the state’s public school system. School Trust land by law can only be sold at public auction.
      Bidders are advised to obtain and view the property data sheet, be familiar with the property, minimum bid price, and terms and conditions of sale prior to attending the auction. To obtain a property data sheet or terms and conditions of sale call 651-259-5432, or 888-646-6367 or email landsale@dnr.state.mn.us. The property data sheets are also available online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/lands_minerals/landsale/.
    • Watch the video.  He didn't say "I don't find much to admire...."   He said "uh... I'm having an Aleppo moment... maybe the guy that used to be president of mexico.... then weld said "Fox" and he said "yeah, Fox"   You had to see it to believe it.    
    • Who are the world leaders you admire the most? Feel free to name them . Personally I can't think of any I have admiration for
