Big Bites Come Early and Late
|Double fisted walleye like this are getting harder and harder to
come by. Fishing key waters at key times of year is the secret
to putting lunkers like this in the boat.
Anglers after double digit sized walleye have two windows of opportunity here in the Great Lakes region. Right after the ice breaks up in the spring and again just before the ice forms in the fall, walleye are on the feed bag. Adult walleye feed aggressively prior to spawning in an attempt to gain as much “egg mass” as possible.
I often joke that the three best speeds for catching trophy walleye are slow, slower and slower yet! In ice cold water walleye will bite, but they are reluctant to chase fast moving food. By simply slowing down our presentations walleye fishing can go from ice cold to red hot.
Stud walleye come most often on a very small selection of crankbaits.
The author’s favorites include the Reef Runner 800 series (pictured here) and
also the Rapala Deep Husky Jerk 12 and the Yo-Zuri Deep Crystal Minnow.
The short list of proven “cold water” crankbaits includes the Rapala Husky Jerk and Deep Down Husky Jerk series, Reef Runner 800 and 600 series baits, the Storm Deep Jr. ThunderStick, Yo-Zuri Deep Diving Crystal Minnow and the Smithwick Perfect 10. All of these lures have a subtle action that is best described as a top-to-bottom rolling action. This action closely imitates a slowly swimming minnow.
|Double digit walleye like this one caught by the
author are most often taken right after ice out
in the spring and again just before the ice forms
in the fall. Slow trolling using subtle action
crankbaits is the key to success.
Lure color often matters when it comes to cold water trolling. When baits are moving slowly in the water, walleye have the luxury of getting a pretty good look at them before deciding to strike. Lure color is sometimes a triggering element, but more often the key to success is trolling speed and fishing at the correct depths.
