5 Best Walleye Ice Fishing Lures

Are you planning on going ice fishing for walleye? Choosing the right lure is crucial to increase your chances of catching that big walleye. You have plenty of options for walleye lures and it mostly depends on the environment you are fishing in. Here are the main things to look for when choosing an ice fishing lure for walleye.

Size and Color: Walleye are known to be attracted to natural colors such as black, brown, green, and white. It's best to choose a lure that imitates the look of their prey, such as minnows or other small fish. Size is also important; you want to choose a lure that is small enough to mimic the size of the prey in the area you're fishing but large enough to attract the attention of the walleye.

Type of Lure: There are many different types of lures that work well for walleye ice fishing, including jigs, spoons, and minnow baits. Jigs are a popular choice for ice fishing because they can be tipped with live bait, such as a minnow or waxworm, and can be worked at different depths. Spoons are effective at imitating a wounded baitfish while reflecting light, while minnow baits can be used to imitate the movement of live baitfish.

Action: The action of the lure is also important. You want a lure that moves naturally in the water and mimics the movement of live bait. Some lures have a vibrating or rattling action that can attract walleye from a distance, while others have a more subtle action that works well in calm waters.

Depth: The depth you're fishing at will also impact the type of lure you choose. If you're fishing in shallow waters, a lighter lure may be more effective, while deeper waters may require a heavier lure to get down to the right depth.

Water Clarity: The clarity of the water can also affect your choice of lure. In clear water, you may want to choose a lure with a more natural color and subtle action, while in murky water, a lure with a brighter color and more pronounced action may be more effective.

By keeping these factors in mind, you'll increase your chances of catching more walleye. You can shop for all ice fishing lures here.
