Have you ever looked deep into the eyes of a Walleye? Compared to eyes of other fish, a walleye’s is a bit odd looking, kind of glassy like a marble. It gets even stranger at night, when they seem to glow. That’s because a walleye’s eye has a unique membrane, sort of like a cat’s eye, that allows them to capture every bit of available light and use it to see when other fish can’t. This explains why some of the very best walleye fishing happens at night. Because they are actively feeding, nighttime walleyes are often on the move, chasing schools of baitfish. Because the fish are scattered and moving, I prefer to troll, at least until I’ve found some fish. Once I’ve found a group of active walleyes, I might stop and cast the area for a while to catch the most active fish, but I go back to trolling until I locate another group of biters. Although the fish are moving, they will still travel along structure breaks.
