Fishing for walleye in August
Zander refers to predatory species of fish of the perch family, gluttony, to it can compete unless the pike. The walleye elongated head and body, greenish-gray back, white belly, and the sides of the body has transverse bands of brownish-gray color. Due to the natural mottled coloring of the fish can easily hide in ambush and surprise attack on an unsuspecting victim. Walleye – the fish is large, average weight 2-3kg, but this is not the limit. Large fish are solitary, small and medium – roam in packs. Their main diet is crabs, frogs, small fish. Young individuals prefer worms and insect larvae. The pike perch is found exclusively in fresh water.
In lakes most of the time Zander is at depth, rising to shallow waters during morning and evening dusk to hunt for small fish.
In the rivers walleye can be found around coastal cliffs and at the bottom of deep pools and pits. Most biting occurs in the evening, and sometimes even at night.
It is necessary to divide the catch of pike-perch into two types: river and lake (pond).
During river walleye fishing in August, remember that pike loves over, and then look for it in the water. Broad and sluggish current water big walleye will not. The maximum that You will be able to catch is small fry walleye, which was delayed here, because it is looking for fry and small larvae.

Find walleye will be easier if You know where located at least a slight fossa or the edge of the riverbed is a favorite place to fish. Long standing in one place the pond the perch will not, as it needs food, and needs to periodically change the place of hunting. Therefore, if the August catch walleyeon the lake or pond is going to a big company of fishermen, they agree about their site search of migrating walleye.
