Weather walleye succes often hinges on quality boat control. The weather has always been a critical factor in fishing success. Realistically most anglers prefer bluebird skies, with little to no wind. But today, with high-tech clothing, comfortable boat seats, and technologies like Minn Kota’s Spot-Lock, fishing windy and inclement weather has gotten much, much more manageable.
That’s excellent news for walleye anglers because wind and walleyes are a recipe for a great bite. If you’ve got the gusto to weather the elements, the wind stirs everything up, gets baitfish moving, and walleyes on the hunt. There’s no better time to get out and chase ol’ marble-eyes.
