Welcome to our Walleye Fishing Home Page
Walleye are one of the most popular freshwater fish. Some of the best walleye fishing is in the northern states such as Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio and farther north into Canada. Walleye are popular because they are one of the best-tasting fish and they are easy to fillet. While other freshwater fish such as bass, northern pike and muskie are known more as sport fish, walleye are a popular fish to eat.

Winter Fishing for Walleye
Most ice fishermen fish for crappie, perch and bluegill because they are more prevalent and easier to catch than walleye, but that doesn’t mean that anglers would rather catch panfish than walleye. Walleye are definitely desired more than panfish, but many anglers have problems catching walleye consistently. Good crappie fishermen will catch a lot of walleye as well because walleye and crappie are usually located in the same areas. Early in the winter season, you can find walleye in 8 to 20 feet of water. As winter progresses, go slightly deeper and you will find fish.
If you are fishing for crappie and walleye, a small minnow on a jig will work for both species. If you are just focusing on walleye, you can go a little bigger with your bait. Jigs can be slightly bigger and minnows in the 3 to 4 inch range will work.
A Great Season for Trip Planning
If you don’t plan on doing any cold weather walleye fishing, this is a good time of year to do a little research to help plan your next walleye fishing trip for next season.
