When do the walleyes come back towards shore in the fall?

4 posts in this topic

I looking at taking a trip with my son and was wondering when the walleyes come back to the shoreline break. Is this driven by water temp., shorter days, bait in the shallows, or ??? When does this usually occur?

I think that if the wind ever quits and we get a period of time with settled weather and the lake clears up a bit the fish will move back to the shorelines to feed.

Wind has a huge factor on this, being today is 20mph out of the south stirring up the mix again I would just plan on rigging for deeper water for the next week.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
