How to Catch a Walleye

Walleye

The temperamental walleye fish has a reputation for being difficult to catch. The walleye is a large river fish so baitcasting reels must be sturdy enough to handle the weight. The Pflueger brand has proven itself to be just that and with many decades of field testing, the baitcasting reels that Pflueger produces are reliable and affordable.
Spring is the best time to catch the walleye since they will be looking for sandy areas to spawn. River currents will attract them and their behavior will be detectably assertive. It is recommended to Use a piece of worm or walleye gullet on the jig to attract more fish. The males will swim in shallow water and are smaller than the females. The females will swim out to deeper water during the day so the males will be easier to catch. The jig should be either one quarter ounce or one eighth ounce.
If the angler is looking to catch a large fish as a trophy it is best to wait for the females to return to the shallower depths near the river bank. Trolling very slowly close to the shore is recommended. The baitcasting reels should be used from the boat. Casting from a sandbar near the weeds will prove fruitful. Using Pflueger equipment will assure that catching the elusive walleye will be a memorable experience.
