Time to ‘eye up this year’s catch! Minnesota walleye season is here once again, and Minn Kota wants to wish all of our anglers the best of luck this opening weekend. Stay safe out on the water and fish on!

Year after year, one of the hottest late spring patterns for hooking up with early season walleyes includes shallow water and lots of jigs. Shallow rocks, weeds, and sand are where it's at and where you go depends on what's available. Before deciding to settle in and start fishing, you'd probably be better off doing a little investigative work with your electronics first and actually mark some fish. I'll cruise potential hotspots and take a look at an area with My Humminbird ONIX 10 set to Side Imaging while keeping some distance and eliminating the potential of spooking shallow water fish. Running the big motor through a pocket of active fish can shut things right down and is the last thing you want to do.

Use your Humminbird Sonar to find the first deep water "down stream" from shallow, gravel spawning areas and tributary streams. Post spawn females drop into these areas to recuperate.

I absolutely love my Humminbird 360 unit which shows the location of logs, snags and fish relating to them. I like to position the boat using my Talon at the "upstream" lip of the drop-off into the hole. Use Lindy slip-sinker rigs with minnows, (chubs for big fish) or crawlers. Another old reliable presentation is to cast a 1/4 oz. lead head jig with a white 3" twister tail...
