Walleyes get their name because their eyes reflect light at night, like cats, and they have excellent vision even in low light, or dark murky waters. Because of their highly effective night vision feeding usually occurs at night when individuals migrate from deeper areas to shallow shoals in search of baitfish.This ability makes them predators even in murky waters. These fish are native to the northern United States and Canada.

Walleyes live as long as 29 years of age. The average life span is 5-6 years. 12 to 17 weighing in at 10 lbs or better is not uncommon. The average weight is 2 3 lbs.
Walleye can be taken by anglers using a wide variety of fishing styles. The method that is most often used is probably fishing with live bait. Most bait fishermen use worms, minnows, leeches or frogs. They can be fished either from shore or from a boat. For those who like the challenge artificial baits are also used.

They tend to like shallow water or rocky areas where shad and minnows hang out therefore making easy meal. They like other fish are subject to water temperature and water currents.

Night fishing walleye:
Just like other prey fish, walleyes are easily disturbed by daylight and noise of boats, kids on the beach, etc. Therefore you will find that night fishing for walleyes is a wonderful idea as they are attracted to the minnows feeding on the zoo plankton.

Take the opportunity add walleyes on your night fishing list

When my knee gets well I am going to try my new Reel-lites out by making a trip to Lake Erie and getting after some nice Walleye there in the Sandusky area. I know the ones you made for my bank fishing trips here in Alabama have done a wonderful job of attracting baitfish to the bank and then it was easier to catch the crappies in the dusk to 10pm time frame. They are great lites.

I have been night fishing for crappie a good bit this year and I will set a couple of rods about 3 ft. deeper than the crappie rods. I have caught several good walleye on these deeper rods and some of the better crappie I have caught have been on the deeper rods. Good luck.

Where can you get the reel lites?
