Walleye are usually taken on live bait rigs such as a crawler harness, spinners or jigs. Drifting slowly or back trolling over drop off areas of weed beds, sandbars, rocky points and shoals will generally produce fish. Walleye are most often caught in shallow water of 4 to 10 feet in the summer months. During late August and September, Walleye may move to deeper areas such as tips of points or sunken islands and move back into shallow areas during the late evening.
Commonly used lures for Walleye are Mepps Spinners, Rapalas, Shad Rap and Mister Twister Jigs.
