Fall Trolling Tactics for Walleyes

cover10

By Jason Mitchell

When I look back at past years, there are several patterns that really stand out in the fall.  Vertical jigging over deep rock piles.  Casting stick baits after dark over shallow rocks.  Pitching jigs tipped with soft plastic swim baits into remaining weed beds.  Live bait rigging with big chubs.  Trolling crank baits along main lake contours.  The locations can vary from current areas and bottle necks to classic sharp breaking structure and rock, either deep or shallow.

Fall patterns run the gamut from shallow to deep.  Depending on the body of water, there might be walleyes on shallow rocks or weeds, deep structure, deep rocks, open water or current bottlenecks.

Lay Over Walleyes

Anglers love to follow cliches.  Many of these cliches get taken as bold truths and get repeated until nobody ever questions what the cliche is.  A lot of information is regurgitated and repeated until we get to a point where people just don’t question something.  There are a few cliches that get thrown around a lot regarding walleyes… how walleyes relate to structure.  There is a general belief that walleyes will move up on top of structure or slide up a break into shallower water when they become active or aggressive.  Walleyes move up onto a point to eat.  Not always the case.
