Wind And Walleyes
How To Use The Wind To Your Advantage


Wind and Walleye fishing success can often go hand-in-hand, but this does not mean that all wind is a good thing.

The wind can have a profound effect on Walleye fishing, and understanding how it affects the fish and their feeding habits is important.

Live bait is easier to control when the wind is blowing directly on your line, but even jigs and crankbaits can be adapted to work very effectively no matter what the wind is doing.

The best wind conditions would be a wind that is between five and fifteen miles per hour, because this will create the popular Walleye chop and can send the fish into a flurry of activity.

Adjust the weight of your jig as well as your trolling speed, to account for the wind if you are using a jig. Wind can also push the Walleye closer to shore, and during ideal wind conditions you may be able to find the fish in as little as two or three feet of water close to the shore line.

Wind is not always a good thing though, and if it is pushing colder air into the area this can have the opposite effect and can actually slow down the activity of the Walleye in the area.

During these conditions it is better to fish in areas protected from the wind and the violent water and waves.

Fish around the outer edges and above weed beds, because the Walleye will move out of the weeds when it is rough and windy.

One way to determine the best Walleye fishing method is to determine the height of the waves. Now I'm not all that big on using math formulas alot, for fishing or otherwise.

But sometimes, they really come in handy.

This is one of those times.

Here's an important “formula” to remember in your fishing:

Wave height will be the same in reverse under the water, which means that a one foot wave will affect the top two feet of the water column.

Most Walleye will not fight the current or undertow, and will instead duck down to right below the turbulent water.

Fish at this depth and you will usually have success on almost any type of bait and presentation.

This is not always the case though, because larger Walleye may move directly into the rough water instead.

You may want to alternate between the turbulent waters and the calm waters underneath. If you are jigging, consider using a larger head and jig size. This will ensure that the jig is capable of standing up to the Walleye and the rough water conditions.

The stronger the waves and the wind become, the more the Walleye can be unpredictable.

If the wind gets too strong or the waves become too rough, many of the Walleye may leave the area completely until the storm passes over and the waters calm down some.

The best Walleye conditions are a moderate wind and some small rough waves.
