Many times you can go over the hump
and see that the walleyes are moving up to the top portion of the hump,
this signifies that they are in a positive mood and within minutes you
should be landing a nice plump walleye in your boat.
Houseboats allow you to set your own
schedule. Whether it is early or late you don’t have to be concerned because
you can park right next to the best fishing.
and Resolutions on Walleye Fishing
Winter is the earth's opportunity
to lie fallow, to regroup, to prepare for a new season of birth and growth
we call spring.
to the GAP
Hook gap is overlooked by many anglers
as something that is not that important, but if you want to catch more
fish this season you should pay attention to this little detail.
Tested, Fisherman Approved
With the advent of tournament angling
more and more people are actually doing more to conserve the sport of fishing
while at the same time teaching and improving the methods that all fisherman
the Key for Ice Fishing
Late season ice fishing for walleyes
can be tough, but with a little practice and mobility you will find fish
and success if you keep these tips in mind.
I probably use more sixteenth and
eighth ounce jigs than anything else. For the record though, 1/32 and 1/64th
ounce will work at times when nothing else will.
Jerkin’ Through the Ice
Here in Minnesota the perch seems
to be one of the most sought after fish when ice covers most of the lakes.
In fact, ice fishing season gives most anglers a chance to get out and
tie into some of the jumbo perch.
Season Walleye Ice Fishing
As winter ice fishing progresses some
tactics have to be changed.
for Ice Out Walleyes
During the spring, live-bait rigs
are one of my preferred methods of presentation.
This is the time of the year that
winter river walleyes are in their prime.
Walleyes Make the Fall Run
Some of the finest walleye fishing
of the year takes place during the fall. The trick is to find the best
action, and to match your presentation to the mood of the fish.
This is a time that sportsmen should
not overlook because walleyes turn on as if old man winter is ordering
them to bite with reckless abandon. Now's the time for trophy fish.
On the flats, the weather has not
as much of an impact as it does in shallow water. Fish favor stability.
Relatively constant water temperature, water quality, weather, and abundance
of prey let fish live predictably.
or Pheasant Hunting Transition is the Key
Structure is very important whether
you are catching fish or hunting pheasants. The similarities are dramatic
when you compare the structures, some of these are breaklines, transition
zones, inside curves, and funnel down areas.
Bonanza at Witch Bay
My son Jason and outdoor writer Bob
Riege joined me this past July to experience some of the best walleye fishing
I have had. The three of us caught forty walleyes over 21 inches in three
days of fishing.
Lake or Old Patterns for Walleyes Pays Off!
Establishing a pattern is simply described
as finding where the most walleyes are most susceptible to bait.
One very important factor that I consider
is weather stability. Increasing weather stability will usually mean that
there will be more active fish, but keep in mind stable weather doesn't
mean four day of cold front conditions.
Carolina Rigging is a bass technique
that is very similar to Roach Rigging for walleye. The Carolina Rig employs
a 1/0 to 4/0 worm hook in place of the Roach rig's small live-bait hook.
up some Walleyes
In essence, the fish are attracted
to the rattling noise and like other animals they are inquisitive and interested
in what is going on.
;Learning to understand the special
needs and preferences of a species is critical to locating fish in any
body of water.
Contour trolling will allow you to
present your bait right in front of the walleyes nose. In cold front conditions
this is essential.
Flippin and Pitching for Walleyes
Casting works best for walleyes in
several situations. When you have the fish pinpointed, a casting presentation
can be the best way to keep your bait in the fishes strike zone.
Your Boats Circulation System
Batteries are the heart of any boat,
and they provide a network of power to run all the accessories on the boat.
It would be very similar to the internal workings of the human body.
of my Father's Eyes
All to often we get involved in our
daily routines and we don't realize that we need to stop and take time
to teach our children some of the ways to enjoy leisure activities, especially
the ones that deal with the outdoors.
for Trophy Walleyes
The hunt for trophy walleyes begins
in April and will continue all the way through the summer. The planning
can start anytime, but now is the time to get that boat hooked-up and on
the way to some real fishing, hotspots.
Why do so many people venture forth
on these cool spring mornings in the pursuit of walleyes’? What makes this
fish more important than a bass or northern pike?
What about the fishing? Well believe
me it is second to none. Here are some tips if you are heading up to Witch
Bay Camp early this year:.
Up and Ready
Give some thought as to why you're
putting a particular piece of equipment in a certain place and you'll be
on your way to owning a fishing machine made just for you.
Bobbers Effective Presentation
The bobber has evolved into one of
the best methods for taking structured walleyes, especially over pieces
of structure, such as rock piles and gravel points.
Banging, Heart Thumping Walleyes
The head thumping, heart stopping
factor, is matching your bait to the level at which the fish are the most
Baits are Touchy, Feely and Squishy
... there are times when plastic baits
will be just as productive and easier to use than the live stuff.
the Little Things .... They Make a Big Difference
...being a professional angler my
living depends on sweating the little things, because if you do they will
pay off big.
Conditions for Walleyes
Wherever walleyes are found, anglers
can get in on this exciting action provided they can identify the prerequisite
key to success.
Dams are the Key to Success
If you ask any river veteran about
the primary structure to fish around, without a doubt you will get the
same response "wing dams." .
Some baits may indeed be designed
primarily to attract humans, but what scientists know about fish suggests
that most of the bells and whistles featured on the fancier lures actually
do appeal to a variety of fish.
the Bait Moving
If walleyes smash my bait as I am
looking for them they signal to me that they want fast moving baits and
they will chase anything that will swim.
Deep Structure with Lead
Two distinct methods will help you
improve your odds of catching more walleyes when they seem to hug the bottom
during cold fronts and in pressure situations. These two methods are leadcore
line fishing and the use of the bottom bouncer.
the Net Under Those Trophy Fish
Perhaps the most frustrating experience
on the water is losing a good walleye next to the boat.
As far as table fare is concerned,
you can't beat a plate full of fried perch with a little lemon pepper and
some Shore Lunch batter.
