Looking for less congestion on Minnesota waters? Tips for finding walleyes without the crowd

The early walleye season can be a crowded affair in Minnesota, but it doesn’t have to be. Fishing like everyone else might be the ticket, but often you can find a hot bite that’s overlooked by others. One way to do this is to try to time your fishing around when fewer people will be out.

Hunters and anglers often speak in absolutes. All of the deer are nocturnal. The toms are all henned up. The walleyes are never shallow this time of year. While there’s always truth mixed in with the “always” and “never” statements, nature doesn’t quite work this way.
The closest you might come to being totally right when the subject involves walleyes would be to make definitive statements regarding the spawn.
