There is nothing like catching Walleye in shallow water in April on Lake Erie. During the month of April millions of Walleye migrate to the shallow waters of the Western Basin of Lake Erie. The best way to catch them is with a spinning rod with a Purple Hair Jig attached. Other colors work well, but check the rods on any Charter Boat in the area and the rods will all have purple or black 3/4 oz. Hair Jigs on them. Tipping these jigs with minnows can help, but most of the time we fish them bare. Catching a limit of shallow water Walleyes is some of the most fun and rewarding Charter Fishing on Lake Erie.
