Where To Find, And How To Catch Winter Walleye
Ice angling gives some incredible winter walleye activity for Northern fishers, however the water seldom solidifies sufficiently thick to wander on ice at my home waters in Missouri and for fishermen the whole way across the south and west. To organize fishing equipment nicely the best fishing backpack is needed.
Walleye on the lakes around home dive deep in the wintertime and are difficult to get. In addition, amid the coldest winters our lakes solidify sufficiently thick to counteract getting a vessel on the water. Along these lines, the best choice for fishermen who need to angle from a watercraft is to target tailraces underneath dams where ebb and flow generally shields the water from solidifying regardless of the possibility that the water temperature plunges beneath 32 degrees.
The best winter walleye angling I have encountered is underneath dams on the Mississippi River north of St. Louis, Mo. Winter is a prime time to catch walleye underneath the dams in light of the fact that the fish move up waterway looking for a feeder stream where they mean to bring forth on riffles. However the fish in the upper end of the waterway's route pools get to be distinctly caught amid their scan for feeder streams bringing about huge schools of walleye to assemble in the tailraces.
Sandy protuberances and profound gaps nearby the mounds are the key ranges to look for wintertime walleye in the tailraces. Keeping a consistent vigil on your gadgets is basic to discover walleye congregating in the slack water beside ebb and flow on the posterior of a mound or fish that drop down into the more profound openings close to the protuberance. All through a winter's day, the fish will extend inside and out from 20 to 50 feet.
Walleyes in the tailraces tend to embrace the base, so you ought to choose baits that achieve the waterway's floor in a rush. A ball or stand-up jighead measuring 1 ounce or heavier and enhanced with a bucktail skirt or plastic wavy tail grub is suggested for angling in the solid current beneath the dams.
Adding a 3-to 4-inch shiner minnow to the back of the dance makes the bait all the more speaking to wintertime walleye. On the off chance that the fish keep short-striking the goad, include a number 4 or 6 stinger snare to the bait to expand your hookups. Knowing your dance recovers can be a gigantic contrast creator in the chase for winter walleye.
While floating down stream at an indistinguishable speed from the present, drop the dance to the base and make short jumps with the bait or gradually lift and swim the dance a few creeps off the base before giving it a chance to fall again to trigger strikes from base embracing walleye.
