With spring approaching, I am looking forward to catch some walleyes. I fished a lot for night walleye in the Fall, but I have never tried that in the Spring. Do they still come to the shallow at night? Any other tips?

I catch em in the same shallow spots spring and fall. But jig and twister tail fished slowly works best for me in spring, while in fall I fish lures at a faster speed. Also seem to get more small males in spring while bigger females in fall

Yes you can catch them up shallow in the Spring just as in the Fall. The walleye will look for dark/hard bottoms that warm up quicker than other areas - especially late morning. Depths of 4-10'.

How about March and April? Thinking about trying lakes and rivers that do not have closed season.
