Sunny Surprise
Pulling in Walleyes When the Sun is Shining


Weed beds are a favorite place for walleyes especially on sunny days, because the dense plants provide shade, cooler temperatures, and dining options. Not all vegetation is equal though. Look for the greenest, lushest plant beds in the area. Coontail and milfoil are good species to spot, but most any blend of varieties will do as long as the base has space for the walleye to move through and lurk.

There is a large selection of presentations that will be effective when working the weeds, but dunking is one worth trying. This method is fairly straightforward and easy to perfect no matter what your skill level is. You will need to pull out extra line, about ten feet, holding the excess in your left hand close to the wheel seat. To implement the presentation, you can either drop the bait directly down into a promising pocket or flip it into a pocket in front of you.

If the vegetation patch is large, drifting is a great way to dunk as many pockets as possible. Drifting only works if the winds are calm because strong winds will push your boat over pockets too quickly to effectively utilize this method. Determine which way the breeze is blowing and place your boat on the outskirts of the weed bed. Let the wind naturally and calmly push your boat along, keeping an eye out for promising places to dunk.

If the day is breezy as well as sunny, you may want to bring along the electric motor especially if the weed beds are more isolated than expansive. A bow-mount motor is best for this situation. This set-up gives you better steering capability and control.

Jigs are a great member in the tackle box and dunking is a good time to hall them out. You will want to choose a heavier jig like a oz. or a oz. The heavier weight will get the jig through the dense vegetation and to the base faster. Color is a matter of taste, though mimicking forage fish generally works well. Brighter colors make it easier to watch the jig in order to guarantee it hits bottom. No matter which jig you select, make sure your hook is sharp and sturdy. Walleye have tough mouths and can be easily lost if you can't get a good hook.

Once you found a promising pocket, let the jig flutter freely down as possible while keeping it from getting snagged on vegetation. Keep the line tight so that you have optimum control during the fall. Once the bait hits bottom, experiment with combinations of motions, lifts, and pauses. It may take a few attempts to get the pattern that the walleyes respond to, so don't give up too quickly. If the fish are being really picky, add some scent or live bait to the jig. That may be enough incentive for them to take the nibble.

Don't let sunny days scare you away from the water. Sunny skies can make walleye fishing a little trickier, but the fish are still out there and they're still hungry. Haunting weed beds and utilizing jigs is a great way to get them out of the water and into the boat.
