Fall walleye fishing ideas?

Recommended Posts

Never fished much after the hunting seasons start and was wondering what methods work best in the fall, trolling plugs, long line live bait, jigs or just soak a big chub?

If you are fishing the typical prairie lake that is seven foot of water over a muck bottom with a little structure and maybe a few weed beds thrown in start with the weed beds and try a sinking rapala. If you find fish, a minnow tipped jig worked very slowly into or close to the weeds works well. If you can't find any fish in the weeds move to any rocks and try the raps or a lindy rig with a minnow and then slowly work the area with jigs.

The best bites are usually around sunset or early morning. Watch the weather, when there is going to be a big change in weather try to be on the water just before the front moves into your area.

In the shallow lakes in my area stealth can really pay off, waders, float tubes, or small boats with trolling motors really make a differance. If you can find rocks and weeds that you can fish from shore this can be a good spot for a quick trip.
