There are many ways to catch these finicky fish. My best advice would be to get ahold of some good Walleye fishing books and read anything you can about them, and then go out and try some of the techniques you learned. I feel the biggest part is, you have to find them before you can catch them. So be sure to study up on your basic Walleye locations, like areas that are rocky, sandy and places where bottom types meet...even mucky bottoms where bugs emerge make for a good walleye meal. Don't forget about points that extend out to deeper water and have a shallow feeding flat nearby as well. Search for them on deep weedlines, especially where the weedlines are different from everything else, like inside turns. Where weedlines come to a point are also a good place to look, especially if these areas have a bottom that transitions from a hard bottom and soft bottom. Remember, walleyes are an ambush fish, so they hide in places where they can lie in wait for unsuspecting food to come by. Rocks, logs , boulders, humps, and weeds are ideal ambush points, among others. Don't forget to look for them in weed pockets, and up in the shallow inside weed edges. Typically, walleyes will be in shallow water in low light conditions, and in deeper water when it's bright out. If the water is stained alot, they could be shallow at anytime. In the spring and fall, I find walleyes in the shallows more often, and during the heat of the summer when water temps are on the rise they tend to spend more time deeper. Rivers add many more variables to consider as well. There are many more things to learn in addition to what I have touched on, but this is a good start. They are a fun fish to figure out and can be really rewarding when you do. One more thing I will add is they like similar areas as smallmouth and crappies, so if you can find them, the walleyes could also be near. So in ending, do some reading on location and techniques, and try them out. A person in the boat with some experience would speed up the learning curve greatly.
