I once had a guest hook a 23.5 inch walleye, on the bottom, in 93 feet of water. We were fishing for Lake Trout on Minnitaki Lake. This one came up way beyond "the Bends". I have only seen this once, and I still don't know why it was down there. I don't recommend fishing too deep, when there are higher concentrations of walleye in depths that they will be successfully released at.

Default Deep Walleye

Hi have caught a walleye in 85 fow on Lake Roosavelt in Washington and there are guides that catch them as deep as 100 to 150 fow, which is insane!!

the deepest I have caught them is at 65' in lake Erie in the central basin. most of the fish go deep in the summer months. if you want walleye during the summer months on Erie it's best to fish deep.

Same here. In the summer, its all about water temps and where the thermocline sets up. Out of Ashtabula, that's around 50' come July and makes its way deeper as the days get hotter. Ours are destined for the fryer, so were not overly concerned about mortality. And those deeper fish tend to be the larger ones.
