Walleye Fishing Guide
Often called walleye or pickerel, the scientific name for this type of fish is stizostedion vitreum. The vitreum part comes from the Latin for "glassy" referring to the walleye's large glassy eyes. Northern Ontario features some of the best walleye fishing in the world as the cold Canadian climate creates prime habitat conditions for this type of fish. And those glassy eyes allow the fish to see extraordinarily well in darker, cooler waters.
Preferred cover includes weed, wood and rock. Excellent bait choices include artificial bait such as twister tails, tube jigs and lindy rigs as well as live bait such as minnows, earthworms, leeches and crayfish. Walleyes love artificial and live bait, and consider a variety of slip-sinker and bottom- bouncer rigs to put a twister tail, minnow, worm, or leech in front of them.
Walleyes prefer darker conditions, and avoid the light. Fishing is better on cloudy or overcast days, or, when the wind moves the surface of the water, preventing light from penetrating the surface. Generally, early morning and evening are a good time for walleye fishing.
In the summer, when the walleyes are in deeper water use a heavier jig, like a 1/4 oz. but during the spring, when they are hungry after dispersing from spawning, try a lighter jig like a 3/8 oz. or even smaller.
Be sure to enjoy a shoreline picnic as walleye are fantastic cooked over an open fire in your favourite frying pan, all you need to add is a little butter, salt and pepper and you have yourself a feast!
