Awesome Autumn Walleye Fishing

Making the Most Out of Fall

Fishing is usually associated with spring and summer. Most anglers pack it up as the leaves begin to turn and temps start to drop. This is rather sad because fall can be some of the best walleye fishing of the year.

Fall is a major change not only on land but in the water as well. Fish are on the move in an effort to stock up before the winter takes hold. The big female walleye are especially on the hunt. They need the reserves in order to produce next year's eggs.

While the walleye have an appetite, getting them to take the bait won't be child's play. If you stick to your summer routine, you are setting yourself up for disappointment. Fall walleye fishing requires a change in tactics.

Finding the fish is important in any season. In fall, you need to look for the fish that are actively biting. Summer hot spots will normally fail in the fall. To be successful, you should always be willing to change your strategy.

If you are fishing on a river, drifting can work really well to locate the active fish. Drift over any obstacles or backwater areas. Don't be afraid to work these areas over a few times. It may take a few passes before you locate the walleyes that are biting.

Once you find an active spot, cast a jig into the still water. Allow the current to carry the jig. A small walleye jig like a 1/8 ounce works fine. The presentation allows the bait to move both slowly and naturally. Walleye are often hiding behind structures in wait for forage fish trying to get to the still waters.

Whether you are casting, jigging or trolling, you need to keep you speed slow. In the fall, everything slows down along with the dropping temperatures. If you are moving your lure too fast, it is going to set off warning signals to the walleye.

Fall can also be a frustrating as far as the action goes. It isn't unusual for the action to stop suddenly and without provocation. In the fall, "the bite" doesn't last quite as long as it does in the warmer months. You need to be flexible enough to hit the water and hunt down the action again.

Your color choices should also change as your other tactics do. Silver blended with black or dark green jigs do very well. Chartreuse and white can also be big producers. Don't get too hung up on the bait you are throwing out. Fall walleye are much more finicky. It may take some trial and error before you know exactly what they are willing to go for.

Fall is not the time to be chin-sy on bait size either. Walleye may be hungry, but they are not going to exert a whole lot of effort for a puny meal. Keep the two and three inch crankbaits for spring. Now is the time to haul out the bigger baits.

Jigging with a to ounce head works well. This size head gets the bait down to the fish and is big enough to be tempting. Adding a four to six inch minnow will really up the appeal. Make sure you go with the bigger, livelier minnows.

Leeches are you next best option for fall live bait. They can withstand the colder water temperatures much better than night crawlers. Try to find the jumbo leeches for your fishing trip. With fall walleye, bigger bait is always better.

While other anglers are packing it in, you may want to try hitting the walleye in the fall. The competition is down and the selection is better. Fall walleye fishing can be challenging but the rewards can keep you smiling all winter long.
