Winter Walleye Bank Fishing Tips, Quick Dusk Bite

 

Got out for the last hour of daylight earlier this week on the upper delaware river, wasn’t expecting to catch anything until maybe after dark but on my 4th cast of the evening got bit, and ended up catching 2 walleyes and lost a couple fish as well. Xraps got the most bites.. zoom fluke got one fish too. Thought for sure the bite would be better after dark but fished into the night until about 7pm and it went stone cold once the sun went down. The February heat wave is making things interesting around here… Water temps are rising fast and the fishing is more typical of late march or early april than February.

The Delaware River is known to produce Walleyes of 10-13lbs making it a world class fishery at times, however these fish I found do not portray that.. Perhaps I will do some more searching for better walleye fishing later this Winter/Spring
