Have you ever wondered what actually attracts walleyes and pickerel to a certain area at night and stay there? Well there are certain characteristics located at certain areas that will attract and hold walleyes and pickerel at night. If you can learn these key characteristics you can become successful at catch walleyes at night. Night walleye fisherman will see different patterns then the daytime walleye angler. To night fisherman there are two types of spots that draw and hold walleye to a certain area.

Number 1 During the spawn you will find walleye and pickerel holding at night only at spots that have proper depth and bottom content.

Number 2 After the Spawn you will catch walleyes and pickerel at night only where there is the proper depth and bottom conditions and where there is a plentiful food source.

The bottom line walleyes need to eat and they are a nocturnal feeder by nature. Walleyes and Pickerel have a high metabilism and need to eat, and typically they will feed aggressively during the night. When you take some time to ponder on it, Walleye's and pickerel will pick similar spots that offer ideal bottom conditions over others. The sole reason In my opinion, is the forage is plentiful in the spot they pick. if walleye have to spawn in areas that offer very little food they will move out of their spawning area as soon as their spawn is complete because they will need to find food. This is not so in spawning areas that hold a good food source for the walleye and pickerel. If you can find a spot that has a rocky or rubble bottom and has vegetation near by, Walleyes will hold here post spawn into early summer as long as the forage is plentiful. When water temperatures start to rise walleyes and pickerel will migrate to deeper water habit during the day but they still head back to shallow water where there is a good food supply to feed at night.

You will will want to cast out and fish the edge lines where the rock and rubble and vegitation merge after you have located you night fishing for walleye spot and anchored. the walleyes and pickerel will be feeding agressively in this area at night. To enhance you experience even more drop a underwater fishing light which is also called a submerged fishing light, over the side and anchor it to the bottom. It doesn't matter if you are fishing from your boat or at a location on the shoreline the light will attract zooplankton and bait fish near where you are fishing.

A good Live bait walleye and pickerel fishing rig that I use at night is a slip bobber the has a small led powered light attached to the top. I use a walleye hook with a good size split shot to hold your walleye minnow down at your desired depth. The slip bobber is useful because you can adjust your depth quickly until you locate the depth of the night feeding walleye and pickerel.
