Where: Walleye are starting to show up in their traditional fall feeding grounds as they follow shad nearshore. The best bite during the day remains offshore in 30-45 feet of water of Huron and Vermillion, and 45-55 feet of water in Lorain. Shore anglers are having success after dark with “Clown” colored stickbaits.
How: Trolling stickbaits has been the best presentation at speeds 1-8 to 2.8 mph. Slower presentations have been better after dark. Shore bound anglers can start picking up walleye near and after dark casting crankbaits and lipless crankbaits that imitate shad.
