A grandfather and son enjoyed some quality walleye fishing. We were jigging night crawlers and leeches in 20 to 30 feet of water in the rocks. Mid lake humps were holding the fish. I taught them some new techniques and we boated over 30 walleyes in the morning. While the night bite is hot the morning outing brought in more numbers. Here is a few.
My best action this past couple of weeks came fishing near steep drop-offs in 20-25 feet. Rigging Leeches, crawlers or chubs has been best on most days but each day is different. In the morning, evening and on cloudy or windy days, try a deep diving crankbait, they are hard to beat.
It is still a good idea to check any of those shallower weed or sand honey holes right now as fish are still using these areas too.
I still prefer to mark fish first before we wet a line during this time of year as this tends to maximize the number of fish we can put in the boat. You can scan a lot of bottom at 4 mph and locate more schools of fish, upping the odds of a good haul.
