Brian “Bro” Brosdahl provides some late summer walleye fishing tactics and patterns that will help you put more walleyes in the boat during the late summer period as water temperatures begin to take a turn towards fall. Bonus points for catching them without bait!

A lot of people think about baits like a Paddle Minnow as a bass technique but they are a great way to trigger walleye even in the dog days of summer. The Smelt Minnow can also come in handy with even more finesse is needed on a jig or bucktail. These plastics are a great substitute for live bait even in tough conditions and being able to go live bait free gives you so much freedom and saves money. Plastics also allow you to change up sizes and colors on a dime so you can adjust and adapt to conditions throughout the day. As bro states, even in clear water he always uses bright colors because the bottom will always have some murkiness to it and the bright colors allow walleye to track the bait better.
