Ontario Fishing Trips, Guides and Charters: Articles : Walleye
- A Walleye with Leeches or Worms
- Leeches and nightcrawlers are favourite foods of the walleye because they are natural offerings in most waters and walleye are accustomed to feeding on them.
- Cashing In On Kawartha Walleye
- The Kawartha region of Southern Ontario rates as one of Canada's premier and most productive fisheries, and, although the angler to lake ratio can be high at times, the fishing is never short of phenomenal.
- Chasin Walleyes
- More people want to know how to catch walleye than any other game fish.
Also known as pickerel, they are often difficult to locate and land. The challenge they present makes fishing them successfully an angling accomplishment.
- Dunk the Weeds for Sunshine Walleye
- Hot, penetrating sunshine and the sensitive eyes of the walleye can make for a frustrating and energy-draining day out on the water for the exuberant angler. Fish become scarce during these trying times and without the proper locations or techniques needed to find and catch these fish, a fisherman's moral can reach an all-time low. Green, healthy weeds, a handful of jigs and a technique called "dunking" are all that are needed to find success during these "dog days" of summer.
- Fall Time Means Plump Walleye
- As the leaves slowly begin to change colour and the nights become frosty, walleye anglers in the know begin to get their tackle ready in anticipation of guaranteed action. Fall is the number one period for catching LARGE walleye, especially those that push the scale down to double digits! By following a few simple rules, catching trophy walleye during the harvest moon can be as easy as 1-2-3, and let's face it, what can be better than that in the game of fishing?
- Fall Walleye Fishing
- Walleye fishing in the cooler weather of autumn is probably second best only to early spring, although there are anglers who would argue this point. Early season walleye fishing is great to say the least, but try a night in the fall when you shiver with cold and excitement as the line goes tight and the fish takes off for deeper water. Fall fishing is hard to beat for great action.
- High Percentage Spots for Early Ice 'Eyes
- Like a puppy staring out the window yearning for its owner, so it goes with walleye anglers awaiting first ice. They're weepy eyed, salivating, possibly drooling, and giddy when walkable ice finally forms. There's no secret as to why, either. The fishing's just that darn good.
- Late Winter Walleye Through The Ice
- If you are feeling the mid-winter blahs of walleye fishing, and sense that the fish must hibernate during this slow period, take heart, as some of the best hard-water angling is just around the corner. Late winter walleye react in many different ways in comparison to earlier in the season, and their aggressive nature, typical holding areas, and plentiful numbers make this time of year your best bet to be out on the ice.
- Simple Spinner Rigs Slay Walleye
- Are you looking for a simple, yet effective walleye bait that is inexpensive and will have you limiting out on your favourite lake? Look no further, as the spinner rig may be the answer to your prayers. By learning what the rig consists of, how and where to fish it, and the reason why walleye love it so much, you will be on your way to a phenomenal season of fishing - and that's what each of us wants, isn't it?
- Tempting the Big Walleye's of Fall
- As the leaves begin to drop and the temperature starts to cool, the walleye begins a migration to typical areas in search of food to fatten-up for the upcoming winter. Fall time is synonymous with trophy time as these fish display size, strength and a willingness to bite. Locating and tempting these lunker fish can be a rewarding experience by trying the following tactics and techniques for hot action on those cool days of autumn.
- Throttling Back for the Spring Attack
- Energies and ambitions have been suffocated since fall; back when turkey was served with mashed potatoes and ‘eyes were stacked on points like lumber. Those were Hallmark moments, the days after the leaves dropped but snow had yet to fall.
Yeah, ice fishing provided a redeemable outlet, too, but spring is still spring. Putting the boat in; running your fingers through a mess of leeches, all black ones; cocking back the bail for the season’s maiden cast. That’s it. That’s the feeling.
- Top Three Lure Choices for Catching Walleye
- Walleye are Canada's favourite and most popular species to fish for, and for good reason - they are plentiful, put up a decent tussle and taste delicious in the pan. There are literally hundreds of lures on the market to catch this fishes' attention, (and the curiosity of the angler), but there are a few tried and true methods that will always put a limit in the boat. Try this back-to-basics approach to walleye fishing and be prepared to have your rod pulled this year.
- Walleye and Bait
- Ask any fisherman that targets walleye and he will mention that "you can't catch them if you can't find them." Despite the body of water where you usually target walleyes go where their menu is being served. The walleye are near the top of the food chain, so find their favorite meal and you will find them.
- Walleye with live minnows?
- Many of you have probably fished for these beauties using live minnows and found that they didn't stay on the hook for long or died fairly quickly. Let's see if we can fix these problems.
- Walleyes in Precarious and Particular Places
- Walleyes and whales could never coexist. Well, first there’s that saltwater to freshwater issue, and then the fact that whales breathe air through a blowhole and walleyes take oxygen aquatically, through gills. Granted, both species spend time in wide open spaces – whales sucking plankton through their baleen and walleyes sucking flesh through their choppers – but their timecards differ considerably.
- Where The Walleye Come From
- April 18th was a sunny cold day with a biting north wind. Volunteer members of COFA (Conservationists of Frontenac-Addington) arrived at Northport on the Bay of Quinte to gather Walleye eggs for their hatchery. These volunteers started their own hatchery to raise Walleye for local lakes through the MNR Fisheries Improvement Program.
