About Northern Ontario Walleye Fishing

By Nancy Gardner

There are several scenarios of walleye fishing. Some individuals go for numbers while others go for the sizes. Others feel happier when they find hotspots at rocky points or off the shoal. Here they get to catch small walleyes. Catching one after another in Northern Ontario walleye fishing seems boring. You will not have a large catch before your trip is over.

During the spring, they choose to stay where there is a river current or closer to the shore. You can find them three to ten feet from the shores. In Canadian lakes, the fish that do not spawn in river do so at the shores. By the end of the fishing season, most of them are through with spawning. They will however hang around the places to protect the beds.

When you mount light jigs, hurry up and catch along the shores. Then aggressively retrieve it since these fish are usually aggressive at this time. It is advisable to make use of brighter colors like white, red, chartreuse and yellow. There are some that will come to feed at the jig. They will still come because they get attracted to the bright colors. They become aggravated by these colors. Most of them will be attracted to the white colors.

During daytime and the early spring, fishermen will successfully catch young males. They easily find them in the beds. At this time, the bigger females have already gone to deeper waters. The individuals with interests of having large size fish and not on numbers should find them in areas where they do not spawn. This is better in deeper parts. Bigger females have preference for the deeper parts.

You need to be aware of how to find the special spots where these fish are in large numbers. If you are fishing during spring, wear small and original floating Rapala and then troll slowly along the shoreline. You will find the fish at about two to four feet in water. The best colors in spring are red, blue, fire tiger and chartreuse.

As you continue trolling, you will get to a point where you will hit them. Begin preparations because most are here. Stop the boat there and begin casing. Do not troll severally at that point because you will likely scare them. They immediately stop the feeding and begin to disappear.

If you are that stubborn fisherman who is not ready to try anything new then you will not appreciate fishing in the north. You will believe that the south has better catch. The fishermen ought to know that during early spring; ninety five percent of these fish are shallower in the waters. During afternoons, the bigger females move deeper in order to protect themselves from the pikes and the scorching sun.

They will go deeper during summer and also stay at the river mouths or the layoff points in the rocks. The rock drop offs are good also. If a lake has flat structures, then they will prefer to stay in the thick weeds where they get better protection from the scorching sun.
