Hi Italo. Merry Christmas to you and the family. I was wondering if you have any tips on catching walleye in the lower Niagara river over the winter for a shore fisherman. Perhaps areas to go and baits to use? Thanks.Posted on December 12th, 2018
Hi George, thank you for your kind wishes we also wish you and your family a blessed Christmas celebration. Walleye are in the lower Niagara all year long but they can be tough to catch from shore, much easier to catch them fishing the current seams where the main current meets the back-currents around the many points. The only reliable shore fishing spot is at the Queenston, ON Boat launch. Most guys will either drift live minnows or plastic minnow like the 4 1/2″ Lunker City Fin-S Fish on a 3-way rig, 36″ leader and 1 oz pencil sinker. Or, they will cast crankbaits that dive to 15′ after dark…God bless you.
