I've had luck with spoons in the early morning for walleyes but it dies off after 8 or 9 am for the past 3 months.

Were you trolling or vertical jigging? I have to figure out when the vertical jigging action starts? Thanks

Vertical spooning/jigging works year round. It becomes more popular during the colder months because the fish hold deeper and other methods don't/can't reach them. The fish also become more neutral and a vertical presentation keeps the lure in front of them longer. So any time you are ready to start is the time.

Thanks I've heard November through the spring is good. I was just wondering how September and October are.

It starts picking up the moment the lake starts cooling down. That doesn't mean the bite is hot, it just means they'll start moving more.

I like vert in sept/october personally, because although there are less overall walleye, you can get some serious wiper, catfish, and smallmouth to hit your lines, which always keeps your on your toes.
