"Water temperature plays a key role. Even here, ideal temperatures vary by latitude. Southern walleyes prefer spawning temperatures between 48°F and 50°F, while their Yankee cousins and Canadian counterparts favor temperatures between 44°F and 48°F."

I 've been reading 45 degrees at my feet from shore .

Great work Carl ! Crawler harness rigs! and some baitfish rigs I guess. What is the main diet of those Saugers and Walleyes by you ?Up here I believe the top bait is the Alewife Herring with Perch and small Bass secondary choices.I have never caught a Walleye on any live bait ,just Shad Raps long model Cranks, Rapalas and a swimbait.

Ah thanks ,for the reply Dick .My 1st Walleye came in Spring I think it was the end of April .It was 18" and caught on a Shad Rap in the Monksville Reservoir. Was back in the late 80's or maybe early 90's.

John I would say early spring I know we had ice on the aluminum boat.

Comment by John Sheehan on November 17, 2016 at 6:21am

Hey Dick, do you recall how late in the year you were getting them? I'm wondering if I can get them now with the water temp in the low 50's- high 40's and where would be the best place to find them .The best Walleyes around me are in Monksville Reservoir and Greenwood Lake .

Comment by John Sheehan on November 17, 2016 at 6:18am

Allen-The clown colored baits worked for me and two buddies up in Lake Ontario off the pier  in the dark as well! I think we used Rapalas and Cotton Cordell's.
