More and more walleyes in the river this week.
Many reports this week indicated that a mixed bag of fish were being caught off small clumps of weeds, as long as they were green.
Definitely seeing a change in fish location and behavior. Shallower patterns beginning to show and moving baits are getting bit. Also a focus on flipping/pitching.
Jig-and-minnow bite really starting to go on area lakes.
Crawlers and crankbaits are turning walleyes, but minnows, especially larger chubs and redtails, are starting to produce more consistently.
Walleyes are being caught using a few different techniques.
It was a yo-yo kind of week. We got a lot thrown at us – from lake types, to changes in weather, to changes in fish behavior. Late-summer patterns continue and emerge.
Walleye anglers continue to do best during low-light periods in shallow water mostly with crankbaits or with crawlers and minnows during the day.
Casting shorelines for smallmouth bass and pike is always a good option for those who like to mix it up.
