Last fall I actually picked up a 2 1/2 lb sauger casting a shad rap style crank bait parallel to the shore line on the Mississippi.

Walleye will feed in water just deep enough to fill their gills up with water. I have seen them with their fins sticking out of the water and occasionally temporarily beaching themselves between waves.

If you ever seen footage of killer whales hunting seals on beeches, you know what a walleye will do if the food is there. A walleye’s favorite saying is, “Have teeth will hunt”.

Casting minnow bait style plugs suck as a #11, #13 Rapala, Salmo Sting, or Bomber Long A’s into the wind swept shore will be good on pre-spawn walleye. Post spawn odds are they are off the breaks and shad Rap’s of jigs will produce, but watch for the food, that is where they will be.

Same deal again in late fall, beat the shelves where they feed is or where they stage for a mock spawn.

Bulked up jigs rigged with a 4" double or single tail twister or a 4-5" sassy shad work well on wind swept shoreline areas, day or night.

Early on in spring the key is warmer water and food. The two usually go hand in hand but not all the time.

A killer classic in winds betting into an in-flowing creek or river. The combo of the wind and the warmer run off currents pile up food and fish in a localized area setting the stage for a feeding binge. Big time Piggy time!

Another proven method in flipping a slip float and a hook or jig into the wind blown feeder shelves. I start with the plugs and work to the less aggressive methods as the fish general mood dictates, first plugs, then jigs, and if they are still fussy go to the float rigs.

Warm water + Wind + Food = Piggys

on days with little or no wind and if in a clear water lake, slip bobber fishing works well. Nothing fancy, just a hook with a minnow, crawler, or leach. Make sure you get that bait down deep enough, even if your bait hits bottom at times. Also, Proper float/weight ratio is important. Not so much weight that the float goes under with every little wave, but enough that it goes under with very little effort. Good luck!

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE INPUT, BACKWATER ED, I HAVE A FEELING YOU HAVE PROBABLY FORGOT MORE ABOUT FISHING THAN I KNOW. HERE IS THE SITUATION, I WILL BE ON A LAKE I HAVE NEVER FISHED BEFORE FOR THE WALLEYE OPENER THIS YEAR AND I HEAR THAT THE EYES ARE USUALLY VERY SHALLOW AND I AM TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO FISH IT. OR AT LEAST HOW TO START FISHING IT. ONCE I FIND A PATTERN THAT WORKS I CAN USUALLY GO OFF THAT. NEW WATER JITTERS I GUESS.........

    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
    • I have a couple LX5s and have been very happy with them.  I had to get a second one for the wheelhouse since after I set it up for the wife, I usually go out hole hopping my original one.  Then come back with fish only cuz I was using the “cheat mobile”.    With the second one I was able to let her stare at it long enough to figure it out cuz apparently my teaching skills are sub par.  She normally wanted to have the camera down all the time but come dark, it’s kinda hard to see anything.     Who knew a wheelhouse and flasher would change her from a winter hibernator to an ice fishing addict.  She wants to go EVERY weekend now.     Anyone wanna buy a wheelhouse? 😉😂   Just kidding.... but I wish she’d wanna try for lakers every once in a while.
    • Was up in Ely over the weekend, darn windy and chilly Sat night.  You make it look so warm and fuzzy with the camp setup and fire. 😊
    • I have no doubt that by now there is something on the market that is better than my FL-20 and my FL-8 but I already own them and they work for me and I am long over the days where I have to have the latest and greatest fishing equipment.    Most of these gadgets, gizmos and lures are better at catching fishermen than fish.
    • My bird places nice with vexilars and doesn't get it too bad when there is a marcum in the next hole.   Keep my FL18 as a backup/loaner, it's been bulletproof.  But I haven't looked backed since I got an ice55 bird.    
    • lol. my brother hates them also cuz they thow a robin chick out of the nest sometimes. Only a couple here, if i had too my they would meet my 17 pellet. Red squirrels get a pass. not enough here. Grays are a different story. 
    • put a new floor in over the past month and finished it off by winterized it on Saturday.
