Walleye Fishing Tips For The Weeds

When it comes to fishing for walleye the first thing we need to focus on is finding where they may be hiding.  The key factor is you should know that where ever they may be, they are there because they are looking for food.  Of course there are a lot of great places to go looking for walleye but one good place to focus on are places where there are weeds.  All kinds of vegetation are great places for small bait fish to hang out in.  If there are bait fish then there will be walleye.

When it comes to walleye it is always a good idea to go looking for them in the weeds.  In the early months because the water warms faster the walleye will be in the shallow water.  In the summertime the weeds will help shelter the walleye from the sun.  Of course while hanging out in the weeds they will be pigging out and trying to fill their bellies.  When it comes to walleye fishing tips if you are looking for some good fish then come to the weedlines and bring a bunch of tackle to help you out.

When it comes to walleye the best thing in the weeds is a plastic jig that is tipped with a minnow.  In almost all conditions the jig tipped with a minnow is whats going to work best.  Of course some times the season will do some dictating as well.  A jig is great because it will help get the walleye to come out of the weeds.  You can present the weeds in different movements until you find what works.  Using power baits with much more scent will also prove to work much better.  The key is to get the walleye to come out of hiding and in most cases the jig will work.

The next good option is fishing the top of the weeds with a spinner.  In most cases walleye will attack their food from below.  The next thing you can do is tip your spinner with bait and really make things work.  The spinner attracts the walleye with shine and vibration.  This actually will have the walleye looking for your hook from very far away.  There is also something called a bottom bouncer that does exactly what its called. 

Then we can look at crankbaits for fishing for walleye over the tops of weeds.  If you are trying to fish in big areas then a crankbait may be what you want to use.  Another good way to fish crank baits for walleye is trolling for them.  Quite often the walleye that are hiding in the weeds will be very aggressive and be willing to chase your lure as it goes by in the weeds.  No matter what you have to always remember that in any fishing patience is the key.  You need to cover lots of water until you find the fish.  Once you find the fish you need to take advantage by using what ever it takes to catch the fish.  Dont be scared to use something different because you may be surprised.

It is very important to find the weedline when looking for these walleye.  A great way to be sure of where you are fishing is to get some electronics.  However there is a simple rule to follow.  The clearer the water means the weeds are deeper in most cases.  Once you know where the weeds are then you want to be careful as to where your boat ends up.  The longer you can stay over the weeds the longer you will keep your self in the strike zone in most cases.

All kinds of life evolves around the vegetation in a lake.  Because of this it is never a bad place to go fishing for the bigger fish.  The rule at all times is to keep on fishing.  As long as you are fishing you will eventually catch something.  The key is catching a fish.  Just remember a bad day of fishing is always better then a good day at work.
