Any Walleye fishing tips?

Recommended Posts

Guest

I was just wondering if anyone had any tips on fishing for walleye in lakes during the hot month of July? If you know any tips, let me know please.

Thanks to anyone who responds!

Depends on the lakes you fish. If you're fishing lakes with weeds don't be afraid to get into those weeds with a jig and a leech. Lindy rigs with lively bait or power trolling spinner rigs can produce fish.

Some ready do well pulling cranks over deep water in the evenings looking for suspended fish. I've done well at times with this approach but really don't do it enough.

Main thing is don't rule anything out. For instance I went out for a couple hours this afternoon with a freind and we kept 4 walleyes and through back a 15" and 19 1/4 " smallmouth bass. All came out of less than 10' of water. The water temp we had was between 83-85 degrees. So they should be deeper wink.gif

Best of luck!

I usually drag raps around in 4-6 feet of water from sunset till 11pm or whenever they stop biting. Last year I limited out in 3 feet of water with a floating rapala in late July. Unfortunately we forgot our flashlight that night and had to use lighted bobbers to take out the hooks.

I am a firm believer in populations of roaming "free range walleye", and resident populations which can be found at the same locations. take winnie for instance... bowens flats gets pounded for the first month of the season, many limits hundreds of boats there to take them. Then as spring progresses into summer the "roaming fish" move from area to area on the lake, but, if you take the time to look close there are still plenty of fish"residents" to be found on bowens flats. Or am i floating in the clouds on this one... the junkie

    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.

    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
