( June 14, 2018 )

The walleye bite in the Grand Rapids area is solid right now. The past 2 weeks have offered some of the best walleye fishing of the year and we hope that holds. Most if not all walleye lakes in the area are kicking out a good bite. It doesn't mean you just show up, start fishing, and catch your limit. You still have to find the fish and find what they want to eat.

Bait selection has been the key to success especially in the past couple days. In the morning, the walleyes might want a jig/minnow, but by 10AM they want a lindy rig and a leech or a crawler. We have really seen the lindy rig and crawler presentation take off this week. Walleyes are in the mood for the worms. It's simple this time of year. Start with a bullet wieght, a bead, swivel, 6-7 foot piece of 10lb flourocarbon line with a bead tied to a #6 hook. Blow the crawler up with a worm blower and drag that thru your walleye spots at .6-1.0 mph. That has been triggering big bites this week and will continue to do so for many weeks.

Walleye locations are changing from day to day now so using your electronics is key to finding the fish. Walleyes are starting to move down the large shoreline points towards the bars and humps in the middle of the lakes. Yes, we have found a few fish on mid lake structures already, but I think your best bite will still be on secondary locations and in or along the weeds. Those eater sized walleyes love the weeds all year long.

The northern pik bite is picking up now as the cabbage weeds become developed on our area lakes. Got to love you some pike fights.
