Allow me, first, to clarify something. This question is incomplete. Seasons are crucial to walleye fishing. A full query should, therefore, include a season.
What I mean is this. A question on walleye fishing should also refer to the season of the fishing.

Before that, let us understand the seasons. Seasons affect habits of the walleye. The overall effect is the fisher’s different choices of bait, location, and technique.
Let us look deeper into the effects.
