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.

By deep water you mean 12', right. LOL. Man, 12' on the lake I fish on is right in the thick of weeds. confused.gif

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
