As the water temperature rises, walleyes can be harder to catch. Buf if you are willing to adjust your schedule and enjoy these warm summer nights, the advantage can tip toward the angler chasing walleyes.

In this episode of Northland Outdoors, host Chad Koel launches with tournament walleye anglers Chad Maloy and Dave Wasness to target those fish.

The trio display creative setups and tackle, advice that can help get you on more fish.

“We’ll be trolling anywhere from 5 to 7 feet of water using some planer boards to stretch the lines out and those walleyes are going to come up and feed pretty heavy tonight,” Wasness says. “So it should be a good night.”
