Walleye Depth

11 posts in this topic

Was out on North Lida yesterday. I found the Walleye bite to be deeper that I expected - all the way from 17 to 21 feet.

What are you finding?

We have been finding them between 9 and 14 feet.

I wonder if the thunder boomers on Friday night sent them out a little deeper? That would be my guess.

I found a couple in 8-12 fow. I had thunder boomers to the north and to the south of where I was and I ended up pulling in a 27"er about 9:00 Friday night.

Oh sure it had to be bigger than mine wink.gif HA HA!!! I'm sure we have crossed paths. I fish out in that area quite a bit. Lots of lakes out there with great walleye numbers as well as some awesome panfishing.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
