Spring Snowstorm Walleye

Spring walleye fishing on Lake Sakakawea. This massive reservoir in western North Dakota is a phenomenal walleye fishery. We filmed this episode this spring of 2021 in some really tough conditions but caught some beautiful fish. Blowing snow, ice and frigid temperatures crashed the water temps down to 39 degrees. We anticipated that the walleyes would slide out into deeper water. We caught most of the fish in 14 to 24 feet of water by casting and dragging jigs and plastics.

The presentation was pretty slow and methodical. Six-pound monofilament and a long shank quarter ounce jig (Northland Fire Ball Sting ‘N Jig) rigged with a Salmo Slick Shad. We tried to mark fish first on our electronics and than spot locked on the spots. We explain the details on how to catch walleyes the spring in adverse weather conditions and hope you enjoy the video.
