There's no doubt that few fish attract as much attention as the walleye, and I must admit that they have received their fair share of attention and devotion from this angler. Their sometimes mysterious and elusive nature, rod thumping fight, and impeccable reputation as table fare make them one of the most highly sought after species that swim northern waters. Any way you look at it, walleyes are a cool fish and are incredibly satisfying to catch. Peak walleye bites occur from late May through mid July on inland waters in the Hayward Lakes region as well as the St. Louis River system, and again from mid September through October on inland waters. I've also developed a very reliable system for catching marble eyes through the mid summer months that produces consistent catches and fillets for the pan throughout the season. Many eating size fish are caught, but several of our lakes have trophy potential with fish from 25 to 30 inches being caught and released every year. Early ice provides yet another opportunity for consistent walleye action on our inland lakes, and Chequamegon Bay will produce quality fish as well for ice anglers throughout the winter months.
