New to walleyes

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Careful, man.  Any such suggestions get criticized pretty heavily.  I came here around this time last year and posted something similar, and I hadn't been on this forum for quite some time.  My question was met by one of the mods with mock & ridicule.  But he thought that was okay as long as he put a smiley face or an lol after every sentence.  Funny, funny guy.  No wonder it's a ghost town around here.  Too bad, this was a must-read destination back in the day.
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
    • Way to go Britt!
    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
