Spring Fishing Up North in Minnesota

Minnesota is one of America’s premier walleye fishing destinations! It also happens to be our state fish. They’re as fun to fish for as they are good fighters. They taste excellent and are common throughout most of Minnesota.

Here are three handy tips for fishing for walleye this spring:

Think Shallow

Fish will be shallow in the spring; think no more than 12-13 feet deep

Switch Up Your Bait

Try jigs and minnows in the morning and slip bobber and a minnow in the evening. 

Slow is Key

Remember it’s spring and the water is still cold. Fish have just finished spawning and aren’t moving very fast yet, so neither should your bait.

Check out the Minnesota DNR website for more walleye fishing tips.

Have fun and I hope you have a great fishing season!
