Spring can be a very exciting time of year to fish all throughout the country. Northern lakes are beginning to warm up and fish are feeding up for the spawn, where the Southern regions are experiencing everything from spawning fish to post spawn transition.

Early season post spawn walleye tactics often incorporate live bait rigging and jigging.  Particularly with states like Minnesota and Wisconsin that have a walleye opener, crankbaits often get overlooked on many fisheries and they shouldn’t. 

Late Ice Walleye

By Jason Mitchell

Some specific States and Provinces have open walleye seasons during the late ice period.  These fisheries offer tremendously fun ice fishing opportunities.  I love catching walleye any day of the year but what I love about late ice walleyes is the level of aggressiveness.  Patterns and locations can vary among fisheries but there are also some almost universal themes or tendencies that seem to pop up wherever walleye swim.
