I didn't want to hijack the other thread so started a new one. Some folks disagreed with me which is fine. Now I'm curious. What month do people think is the hardest one to catch Vermilion walleye in open water?

Early July to mid August.  It is just so darn hot and the heat is a killer.  I think the fishing slows down a little as well.  It's hard to be out there when the sun beats on you so hard requiring you to dress for it.

Agree with Mtheis, especially this year though. I haven't been fishing long hours (usually about three in am, a couple mid-late afternoon), but it has been MUCH slower recently for me than usual. I have always bragged that I will always catch at least one meals worth (usually three or four of us) of keepers each weekend we go up. Hasn't happened the last three or four trips....Frazer/Smarts area

Best-to-worst walleye fishing, for the seven open water months on V:

 

1. October

2. May

3. November

4. September

5. June

6. August

7. July

 

I rank November down, as i'm including likelihood of weather to knock you off the lake.

I totally agree with Chucker that July is the hardest and for me its not even close.  August can have a good lead core bite at times.

Always have had struggles in July.  Lots of forage to keep them fish full this time of year.

July for me.   I have had a couple openers that were pretty thin soup as well.

I love me some dock fishing in July.  Followed up with the lead core in August.
