The Next Level…Fall 21

Fall 21 is upon us and it's time to start the hunt for those trophy fish.  All Walleyes are roaming chasing huge schools of bait and getting ready for the arrival of winter.  Fall Walleyes can be found sitting on hard structure and cruising the shallows at night.  Spoons and glide baits will be go to presentations but crankbaits will boat many big fish.

Fall 21

The fall feed bag is starting and trophy Eyes will be in high demand.  Reservoir systems can be tricky with changing water levels and the big lakes rely on the wind and changing water temps.  It's all about finding the abundant bait in the lake and making them bite.

Luck vs. Skill

The question that is asked by all...  Is fishing luck or skill?  Does it have to be one or the other or can it be both?

If you haven't listened to the free podcast...stop and listen to that one first.  Lets go a little deeper into making them bite in the hottest days of the year.  Traditional Walleye wisdom would have you believe the fish are deep in cooler water hiding from the intense sun.  Not true.  The Walleye are actively feeding at a wide range of depth and on many different techniques.  You just have more competition in the form of plenty of bait fish and you have to keep up with the roaming Eyes!  Join us as we dive into Make Em Bite!

Make Em Bite

It's hot and the fish aren't biting!  You can't get them to bite anything you threw a month ago.  You see them on your graph but they just aren't hungry.  WRONG!  Not only are they hungry but they are feeding constantly.  Chances are you aren't looking in the right place and you aren't a very good competitor.  You are competing with mother nature and in a healthy lake you are a 7th round draft pick looking to make the team.  You GOTTA MAKE EM BITE.

Colorado Walleye Trail

Lets talk the Colorado Walleye Trail.  After two full seasons of operating the Colorado Walleye Trail we talk about what it's like to fish the Colorado circuit and how much fun we have.  We are proud of our anglers and the competition in the CWT.  Colorado is not the first place you think of when it comes to great Walleye water, but it should be one of the first places you think of when it comes to great Walleye anglers!

The continuation of the free podcast, we go into more detail on catching stupid shallow summer Walleye.  This is a must listen.  If you haven't fished for walleye in 2 ft of water on a 100 degree day with not a cloud in the sky while pitching to open spots in cover so thick it scares Large Mouth away, then you need to listen to this.

Early Cover

Late spring and early summer provide Walleye anglers with a great opportunity to find those hungry eyes in new weed growth or high water areas.  Looking for eyes in vegetation and timber is most often over looked by Walleye anglers, but it can be the best place to find those big eyes.  Don't be afraid to go shallow.  Two feet or less can lead to 30 pound days!
