What were walleyes eating?

Recommended Posts

Cove

Fished south end 6/21 and in one particular spot caught three walleye from same 30 yard area in rapid succession and all three had this in their throat:
Sand mixed with 1/2 inch long whitish grub like critters. I can only conclude they were sifting through the sand/gravel bottom for these things.

I was on the big pond sat.,We caught many eye's and only a few had any kind of sand in them but i did here some thing frm a family friend who dose have a house on the lake...He went out one day last week and he some how managed to get a few in the slot and when he was cleaning them he found rock's in them,He said 2 of the 3 fish had like 3" rock's. Now to me that sound's crazy....

Very likely they are partially digested Crawfish.

The tail section partially digested looks much like a white grub or shrimp.

Odds are walleye are feeding heavy on craws now.

I would give crawfish colored Millenium tube baits & jigs a shot, work them over the rubble to sand transitions?

Last weekend I caught a five pounder that had a crawfish coming out of its throut so I would agree with D-man they are feeding on crawfish. BigBassBrettskee
