How To Catch Fall Walleyes - Tony Roach - Video

Gear up for a fall fishing trip by watching how Tony Roach targets shallow fish in fall. He talks about what kind of structure to look for this time of year. Once he finds a piece of structure he likes he picks them apart based on wind direction that day or if there is little wind the direction of the wind the day before. Depending on depth and wind he uses 1/8 and 1/4 ounce jigs with a variety of live bait like red tails, rainbows and shiners along with Impulse® Soft Plastics.

Deep Trolling for Late Summer Walleye - Fish Ed - Video

This Week Jon trolls for deep walleye on Lake of the Woods in late August. 
When the fish are 30 feet deep, downriggers, leadcore line, or bottom bouncers are all good ways to get your crankbaits to run at the correct depth. Lindy Shadlings or Cotton Cordell Wally Divers are great walleye lures any time of the year.

Fishing For Walleye in the Detroit River - August Eyes - Walleye Fishing Video

Feeling Bad for Phil pays off! Who would have thought of limits of walleye, jigging the Detroit River in the middle of August? 

These guys usually hit it really hard in the early spring when limits of walleye aren't uncommon but when they invited me to tag along and have some fun on this beautiful August afternoon the last thing we expected was a 3 man limit of those tasty eyes. The crazy thing was we pretty much had the river to ourselves and the only thing that really left the River were the fisherman.

Summer Walleye Fishing - Walleye Workshop Video

Walleye Workshop - Summer

This is part 3 of a 4 part series walking you through the walleye fishing season. Spring / Early Summer / Mid - Summer / Fall. I typically do this seminar in person during the month of March. With everything going on I hope you enjoy this series on Youtube. Summer is probably one of the toughest seasons for many walleye anglers. Fish leave the shallower primary pieces of structure and often times end up roaming the deeper structures. I break summer walleye fishing down into locations and presentations. This video highlights exactly what I do to catch mid summer walleyes. I hope this video was useful to you as I put a lot of work and information into these presentations each year.

Giant walleye from Lac Vieux Desert spurs record talk

Paul A. Smith

Venturing out alone in the early evening, Van Dyn Hoven pulled his boat into a partial lee of an island in the lake's northeastern lobe and let the breeze drift him toward a 10-foot rocky hole.

It didn't take long to validate his decision to head out.

Casting a big, shallow-diving lure, he had a hit by a solid fish.

"I was targeting northern pike, which my wife and I love to eat," Van Dyn Hoven said. "I wasn't sure what I had, but it was plenty big."

The fish made two strong runs, then Van Dyn Hoven was able to work it to boat side. As he led it into the net, the fish turned and revealed a distinctive white spot on its tail.

"Walleye!" Van Dyn Hoven said. "I was stunned. That spot was as big as a silver dollar."
Although Van Dyn Hoven has been an avid angler since his youth and has caught many hundreds of walleyes, he had never seen one as big as the one he just landed.

He's not alone. In fact, only a handful of anglers have ever caught a Wisconsin walleye as large.

The fish was 31.75 inches long and, when weighed the next day on a digital scale, was 16.87 pounds, according to Van Dyn Hoven.

The fish was a female, mostly or completely spent after spawning, and would have been substantially heavier a few weeks earlier when laden with eggs.

Walleyes stripped for spawning typically yield about 85,000 eggs per fish, said Mike Arrowood, chairman of Walleyes For Tomorrow, and about 5,000 eggs per fluid ounce.
It's not uncommon for an adult walleye to produce 1 pound of eggs.

As such, Van Dyn Hoven's fish could easily have been heavier than 17 pounds, perhaps even 18, and has turned heads and generated discussion about a near miss on the quest to break the state's oldest fish record.

The Wisconsin walleye record is an 18-pound fish caught in 1933 on High Lake in Vilas County, according to the Department of Natural Resources.

Like some other old fish records, doubt has been cast on the legitimacy of Wisconsin's biggest walleye because there is no photo documentation of the fish and its information was presented years after it had been caught, according to the DNR.

Still, it's on the books and is recognized by state officials.

And it arguably makes big fish like Van Dyn Hoven landed in May all the more captivating.

Where to Find and Catch Walleye - Spring Walleye Fishing Video

Spring is one of my favorite times of year to chase walleyes. Pitching jigs and crank baits in shallow water is for sure one of the most enjoyable ways to catch a walleye.

I hope this video helps put more fish in your boat.

34" Walleye Jason Mitchell Personal Best Walleye on Missouri River Video

Jason Mitchell catches his personal best walleye on the Missouri River south of Bismarck, North Dakota. Will never know the weight of this fish because there wasn’t a scale in the boat but we believe this fish was close to or could have possibly surpassed the North Dakota state record. Incredible experience. The first fish of the morning was a fish that we would guess to be a solid eight pound fish. The second fish was much bigger.

North Dakota has a no cull law that basically prohibits releasing a fish once the fish is in the live well which reduces mortality from anglers upgrading fish. Because we didn’t know the exact weight, we quickly decided to release the fish so hopefully some other lucky angler can experience such an incredible thrill. How big do you think this fish was? We have held many walleyes up to twelve pounds over the years but never personally seen a fish that had this length and girth.

Red Lake Ice Fishing -- 4 man walleye limit - Video

We had heard the bite was still on at Red Lake so we decided to pull the wheel houses up and try fishing for some walleye. Most of the fish we caught that were on camera are towards the end of the video. We set up in 12 feet of water and although the fishing wasn't on fire, it was steady through out the day and night. This was enough to fill a four man limit of walleye over the course of a day and a half. Nearly every walleye we caught were keepers except for the smaller ones. The biggest one caught was 19".

All footage was taken with a GoPro.
