i am looking at fishing a southern MI inland lake this spring for walleye. When is the best time to fish (month/ day or night, etc.)? And what is the best technique for this time of year and situation? I am thinking an effective way would be to fish shallower water (8-15ft) by casting body baits, jigs, and drifting minnows under slip bobbers. It seems that walleye in lakes move in to shallower water in the spring to spawn and feed. Can anyone provide any tips or insight on this topic? Most of my walleye have been on rivers and erie. I have never really targeted them on an inland lake. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
