How Picking the Right Style Bait Can Improve Your Odds of Catching Walleye

Walleye in the Detroit River are impressive top predators that must make split-second decisions as food races down the river, while also contending with dirty water conditions, which makes feeding even more challenging. Anglers face the challenge of determining the best bait style that aligns with the conditions and walleye feeding behavior. One of the critical factors to consider is bait profile, and Goby offers a great choice for walleye food sources, particularly in high flow environments.

Round goby have elongated bodies with large heads, bulging eyes, two dorsal fins, and a large vertically-aligned caudal fin, making them a big target relative to other slim baits like worms or flukes. The visual characteristics of goby have been imprinted in walleye throughout their lives, making it easier for them to recognize and catch gobies quickly. GRUMPY Bait Company's GOLIATH Goby offers a 40% increase in overall cross-sectional volumetric profile compared to worm or fluke style baits. Walleye tend to hug the bottom in fast-moving waters to conserve energy, which brings them closer to where goby are found. Since both goby and walleye naturally occupy the same space, goby is an easy and ideal bait choice.

Walleye feeding preferences in the Detroit River depend on several factors such as water clarity, temperature, wind speed and direction, cloud cover, and bait profile. However, goby is an excellent option due to its size, shape, and proximity to where walleye tend to feed. Thus, anglers looking to catch walleye in the Detroit River should consider using the Goliath Goby baits from the Grumpy Bait Company to improve their chances of a successful walleye catch.
