I have been very busy hitting the Green Bay gold walleyes hard this past month, there has been some fantastic walleye fishing. Both sides of the bay have been very good with each side having slightly different patterns.
On the west side big schools of walleyes have moved out to the deeper mud and are very hungry. I have been running crawler harnesses out in the depths. That technique has been pulling a good mixed bag of eaters, giants and everything in between. Use your electronics to find baitfish and/or schools of walleye then set your baits to run above them and hang on for the action!
Do not follow the crowds! On some days we have had success in depths as shallow as 8 feet working the structures. You should also watch your electronics while you are fishing. Watching your electronics can make a big difference between fantastic walleye fishing and mediocre walleye fishing. Keep an eye out for new stuff such as depth changes, bottom changes or structures you did not know was there.
On the east side, work mid to deep depths with crawlers and cranks. Your choice should depend on the type of day, the weather and the situation, try to locate the fish and let them tell you what they want. If something is not working and you are on fish don’t be afraid to switch things up. The fish on the east side are also relating to nearby structure remember to use your electronics and target them.
The dog days of summer are here and temps will continue to rise, but as winds switch and blow in different directions the water moves around. There will be subtle to extreme temperature changes so watch for these changes and adapt to them. Those changes can make all the difference in the world.
There is some fantastic walleye fishing happening right now that should continue through September. I have a few openings left in late August into early September.
