Catching Walleye in the Dark of the Night

Making the Most of Nighttime Feeding Patterns

Fishing for walleye at night is a lot of fun. But before night fishing, a little daytime reconnaissance can come in handy. Take some time during the day to study where groups of minnows and other tasty morsels like to congregate.

Chances are that's where your walleye will be at night, gorging on the locals. When casting you should make sure you retrieve slowly as fast movements may spook any potential catch, and this will also help you determine if walleye are in that particular area.

If you are trolling then slow and quiet is what you need to be. Planer boards help with stealth which is key to attracting the scattered feeders amongst the shallows of the quiet water. Lighted planer boards will grab the attention of local walleye, and behind them crankbaits, with floating Rapala and Storm Thunderstick the tried and tested favorite of professionals. You want to cover as much water as possible and be sure to stick at 15 feet or above with you lure set to 2 -3 feet below. Trolling the water is an 'S' shaped pattern will help ensure maximum coverage. Alternatively try casting toward shore where walleye tend to favor at night, but be careful when moving your boat into position not to scare them off with noise and commotion.

Keep a look out for walleye in the water, as the reflective glow from their eyes can also help to give away their position. If you have done your homework then areas where there are concentrations of walleye during the day have a high likelihood of being busier at night. Safety is also a key factor here, as the dark of night does not reveal the treacherous obstacles that can be easily spotted during the day. Lighted marker buoys can help you keep track of shore contours and submerged hazards. Moving along known walleye spots till you find a good concentration can potentially mean a hazardous return journey and lighted or glow in the dark buoys will help, particularly when casting from shore. Most importantly make sure you have thoroughly checked all of your gear prior to setting off and ensure others know of your plans.

Walleye fishing at night can be done with a wide range of lures and bait all of which you want to keep close to the bottom of shallows with slow retrieval. Blue, silver, black and white are colors that can often provide a good catch at night, which teamed with lively bait such as minnows and worms prove an attractive proposition for the hungry walleye. Using a live bait and jig combination helps to cover varying depths in an unobtrusive manner and is a well known combination for success, especially when you have a good selection of live bait to help determine what the feeding walleye are hungry for. Trial and error will be your greatest tool in finding that glorious walleye night time sweet spot.
