- Walleye Location Where do you
find walleye or pickerel? Learning how to catch pickerel involves looking for
weeds, identifying key underwater structure and using the weather conditions to
help find the location of the fish.
During the day walleye often sit in
holes along the bottom of the lake or river. Sometimes the fish are found
suspended on a rock shelf, submerged island, or off a point when feeding on
Islands and reefs are good locations for finding pickerel,
especially on windy days. Starting at the shallow part of the island, work your
way out until you find the depth range of 15 feet to 25 feet. Normally, perch
and small pike ambush minnows from the range of 8 feet of water down to 15
feet. The walleye are usually found in the next depth zone.
Rough water and
cloudy days will bring pickerel closer to shore to feed on bait fish. The edges
of weed beds are also good spots to find feeding walleye, especially in the
late spring and early summer.
After the sun sets, pickerel will move into
shallower water to hunt for schools of minnows. They can often be caught at
this time by casting lures off of a dock, or from a shoreline that has a quick
drop off to deep water.
Despite needing a large float, this technique is very sensitive, so
youll be able to detect the most gentle of bites. The main benefit to

The slip sinker
rig is one of the most common and useful of all fishing rigs. It is very
versatile and can be scaled up and down depending on the situation. A slip
sinker rig can be used in two different ways. The plastics are slowly retrieved
with the sinker making contact with the bottom. The amount of buoyancy the lure
has determines whether it will float above the weight, slowly sink, or go right
to the bottom. Lures that resemble crayfish do well on the bottom. Lures that
look like lizards tend to do better when they float.
