Lake Ontario, NY Walleye.

Posted on June 1st, 2022

Many anglers enjoy trolling the eastern-basin of Lake Ontario in both NY and Ontario for trophy Walleye all season long. Alan Tucker reports that the large female Walleye are already feeding in open-water and reports that catches for 7-10lb. fish are excellent.

Trolling for trophy Lake Ontario Walleye is ideal to do as a family or with your wife!

Alan has bee fishing trolling blue/silver deep diving crankbaits that reach depths of 30′.

Eastsern-basin Lake Ontario Walleye grown big and feed on large suspended baitfish. Crakbaist in the 14-16cm length that dive down to 30′ can work great.

Slow trolling around 2mph will produce the best results. These trophy Walleye are fun to catch but I would encourage anglers catching them to release them and practice selective harvest and keep smaller “eating-size” Walleye in the 2-4lb. range.
