Lures, Rigs, And Jigs That Crush Walleye In The Fall

A fall walleye is a hungry walleye. And anglers willing to put in the effort each Autumn can reap the rewards of the year’s best fishing. Usually, in early October, walleye begin transitioning to predicable areas in groups, fattening up for winter together as they gorge on meals, generally consisting of minnows or baitfish.

For lake walleye, the first fall movement is when fish move shallow, this can be in back bays, along break lines, or amongst the remaining green vegetation. River walleye start moving upriver as they head towards deeper wintering holes.

As the fall progresses, fish will leave the shallows back and head towards deeper water as they begin setting up for winter. Ripping jigging raps, popping a jig and minnow, or trolling crankbaits near high percentage structure will be the key to success later in the fall.

Now that we know more about where the walleye should be hanging out and what they should be doing, let’s look at our favorite lures for fishing walleye in the fall. From crankbaits to hooks and nearly everything in between, here are 34 lures that crush walleye in the fall.
