Fishing - All About Fishing for Walleye
The walleye is now found throughout the US even though its initial
distribution was among the waters of the eastern and southeastern
states. Often found in rivers and streams it prefers moderately
deep lakes with gravel, rock or sandy bottoms.
Walleye fishing offers a blend of the fishing trip excitement with
the anticipation of at tasty meal for the successful angler. Walleye
is a favorite of the white meat, fresh water fishes.
Walleye spawn in spring and when the option is available, will
choose to migrate from the lake up into feeder streams to spawn.
If this option is not available they seek out shallow bars or shoals
with clean bottom surfaces near deep water.
The toothy walleye will eat virtually anything they can catch
and get in their mouth. They prefer small fish and will eat crustaceans,
worms and insects. Try fishing for walleye from sundown to midnight,
particularly during the heat of summer. Visit the walleye
fishing videos section for tips, ideas and great fishing action.
