Walleyes have been a struggle in most areas again last week, although there are some exceptions.
While some bigger walleyes are being caught on deep, main-lake structure in some areas, weedy spots seem to be holding better numbers of fish
While some bigger walleyes are being caught on deep, main-lake structure in some areas, weedy spots seem to be holding better numbers of fish.
It’s been a strange week of walleye fishing with many reports indicating that there’s been quite a few fish being caught in shallower water – less than 10 feet in many areas.
Most walleye anglers finding success are covering water with crankbaits or spinner rigs and crawlers on main-lake structure and deep weedlines during low-light periods on most lakes.
With a few exceptions, walleyes have pulled off the shorelines and started to move onto main lake structure, generally in deeper water.
After the cold front that arrived prior to Memorial Day weekend and carried into last week, weather conditions stabilized a bit more and walleyes seem to be responding in most areas.
Crappies saved the week for many groups as they made a serious push into shallow water areas, such as bulrushes, submerged wood, docks and shoreline spots.
Fishing action better than average on the opener.
