7 Unconventional Walleye Fishing Tips
west we do a lot of salmon and steelhead fishing. In
particular, steelhead fishing is extremely effective
if you fish at night. Fisherman have 2 primary
means of catching steelhead: lighted lures and shrimp
on/off the bottom.
and more walleye fisherman are beginning to fish at
dusk until midmight or when the bite goes off. This
walleye tip is related to catching walleye at night.
your walleye river: Night Fishing Walleye
Using a map I like to locate
a shelf alongside a deep hole. If
you can find a shelf that also contains
weeds, you are in luck. Walleye hide
in these deep holes during the day and they
love to come up into the shallows at night
you can find a couple of these shelves within
a reasonable distance from each other, then
you have options if one place is not producing.
I like to do is troll the shelf during lighted conditions
to find snags, humps, bolders, etc. I also try to find
landmarks on shore that can help me identify critical
areas that I need to avoid or concentrate on. I
prefer to find shelves that allow me to troll for at
least a quarter mile because that is my preferred method
of night fishing for walleye.
Fishing Walleye Rigs
I said, trolling is our primary means of fishing at
night, so we like to long line our walleye rigs. Number
1 night fishing walleye rig we use is a shassy shad. We tie it directly onto
our line using a 3/8 ounce black jighead.
primary color is black/silver and if you click image

2 night fishing walleye rig is a jointed rapala. I've
used large and small rapala's and have found the one
on the left to work best for us at night.
when night fishing the walleye are looking
up towards the moon and for whatever reason
the black back with silver or white belly
works best. Some evenings I have tried
a more perch pattern with success.

Walleye Fishing Requires Good Trolling Rods
When it is time to use your bottom bouncers we have
learned that our old salmon or steelhead fishing rods
are really good trolling rods. However, if you
have those stiffer steelhead rods or even the ultra
firm salmon rods are not very good for trolling for
walleye. Anything in the medium range has worked
well for us and our ultimate walleye rod length is 8'6".
Again, this is our preference after using the
special rods made for walleye trolling and bottom bouncers.
We tried the ones from both Bass Pro and Cabela's
and felt like the length of 7' was just not long enough
to meet our needs. Our rod we are now using is
the St. Croix Eyecon Walleye Trolling Rods Model: ECT90MM2 (9' 0", M, 2 pc.)
If you take the walleye trolling rods from both Bass
Pro and Cabela's, throw some braided line on them, there
is one guarantee--you will feel every single rock in
the river. That is what I love most about those
rods and their sensitivity is second to none. However,
I lost more rigs using this combo than using monofilament
line and our longer rods. I just feel that the
longer rods get our bottom bouncers out from under the
boats path, it is easier to un snag yourself and the
fish really like the presentation better. Bottom
line, I caught more fish using my steelhead rod than
my "walleye specific rod". Just remember
we use bottom bouncers most of the time and when we
do use whistler jigs or blade baits we switch rods.
Our preferred rod for this type of walleye fishing
is the St. Croix rods.
be afraid to use a night crawler, especially if you
are fishing off the bank or prefer to cast and reel.
Walleye eat just about anything that's easy to find
and night clrawlers are no exception.

to make believers out of these locals. One simple walleye
fishing strategy I learned and finally taught the locals
was fishing the river in both directions. They've
never tried that before and now I can see them out there
on the Columbia river heading up stream for the first
time of their lives. Another great secret is to look
for plankton. Once you find it on the water, you
better get your bait inside it or you'll pass over one
very "hot spot" loaded with all kinds of fish,
