Walleye Fishing Lakes
Walworth County Wisconsin, Lake Delavan anglers can often reach the
3-fish 18-inch walleye limit.
Located in Dane
County Wisconsin, Lake Mendota has a 3-fish 18-inch walleye limit.
On Lake Mendota try pitching a half night crawler or leech
into pockets on the outside edge of the weeds on a
1/16-ounce black jighead.
Shawano County Wisconsin, when walleye fishing Lake
Shawano target some of the shallow reefs along the lake's
east end that top out at about 10 feet by long-line
trolling deep-running minnow-imitating lures. Once walleye are
located, switch over to a jig-and-minnow presentation, or
a minnow under a slip-bobber during periods of low light.
During the Spring
and Fall, Walleye can be found close to the shorelines on
Lake Winnebago. In the Summer, large schools of walleye
are found roaming the vast open water of Lake Winnebago
chasing schools of gizzard shad, emerald shiners and
young-of-the-year drum or sheepshead.
Located in Chippewa
County Wisconsin, when walleye fishing Lake Wissota
stay in the 15-25 foot range. During the day use
a jig and minnow and as night approaches anchor and
cast some slip bobbers by any drop off.

found near weeds in 8 to 15 feet of water or suspended
over deeper structure, 20 to 40 feet. A flasher is a
must to be able to locate them in deep water. Use 1-
to 2-pound test line and a spring bobber to detect bites.
A No. 14 to No. 16 ice jig such as a Ratfinkee, Moon,
Diamond, Marmooska or tungsten style were preferred.
Wigglers worked best for finicky bluegills. Spikes,
waxworms, and ice plastics also produced.
found suspended over deeper water, as deep as 40 feet.
Use your flasher to determine what depth they are holding
at and present your bait above the school. Using tip-downs
or "dead sticking" with a No. 14 treble hook
baited with a small fathead, rosy red or baby golden
shiner minnow produced. A size No. 8 or No. 10 Ratfinkee,
rocker or moon ice jig baited with a wiggler, wax worm,
or ice plastic also took crappies. Small jigging spoons
such as a Lil' Cecil, Swedish Pimple, Forage Minnow
or Kastmaster work well for aggressive crappies.
found in deeper water areas, either on the bottom or
suspended. The best bite window has been between sunup
and 9 a.m. A Ratfinkee or rocker ice jig along with
Hali or Swedish Pimple jigging spoons loaded with spikes
will produce. When fishing in 50 to 75 feet of water,
be sure to use a "perch sinker" to get down
to the depths quickly, especially when you have a school
of perch on your locator. A tip-up or tip-down rigged
with a 4-pound fluorocarbon leader, No. 14 treble hook
and baited with a baby golden shiner, medium lake shiner,
or large fathead minnow has also produced. Drill a hole
next to your tip-up, to jig in, when a school comes
pike caught from various depths, most often near panfish.
Tip-ups rigged with 25- to 40-pound fluorocarbon leaders
have produced more fish than steel leaders. A No. 6
or No. 4 red or glow treble hook was preferred. Use
medium to jumbo golden shiners along with small or medium
suckers for live bait. Try adding DK's magic powder
to the tail of your minnow for added attractant. Brined
jumbo smelt baited on a smelt rig can also work well,
especially for big pike.
found in water as deep as 40 feet, often near the bottom.
A tip-up rigged with an 8-pound fluorocarbon leader,
No. 10 red or gold treble hook and baited with a medium
golden shiner or small sucker was the preferred method
for most walleye anglers. Try adding beads or a small
spinner to your leader minnow for added attractant.
Jigging with a Jigging Rapala, Swedish Pimple, Buck
Shot spoon or Slender spoon tipped with a piece of minnow
will attract aggressive walleyes.
