Walleye tactics during the day

7 posts in this topic

I was wondering what were some methods people use for catching walleyes during the day?!

I would look for deep water transitions, bottom of dropoffs, hole hoping on deep water basins, outside corners, etc. Basically it depends on the lake and amount of structure, but use what you already know and flip it. What I mean by that is, let say you set up for an evening bite you usually fish shallow points, bottle necks, anything that leads to shallow feeding areas! Now just think of where they might be coming from before they hit the shallows. Basically fish deeper holes adjacent from you shallow fishing areas and stay mobile because they more than likely will be roaming in the area!

i overlooked that thought. for walleyes i like to fish in about 18 fow a lot. i have pretty good luck at night in that depth. but like i said i overlooked that fishing deeper part. it makes sense because there trying to stay out of the light so they will be deeper! thanks for the tip!

Delta hunter gives some great advice. The only things I would add is to either chose to be mobile with a jigging spoon or something of the sort tipped with a minnow head or use tip-ups at varying depths with big baits.

TO has a great point that I forgot to mention! Fish aggresive during the day hole hoping with spoons, chubby Darters, etc. and hopefully you will run into some active fish!

So I've found some small ones during the day in 10' water and they seem to be active a little at night too. Where are the larger ones then? Deeper? I think we'll try something closer to 15' tonight and see if they are there. Good tactics in this post, thanks.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
