Casting for Walleye in the spring on lake erie????

I was wondering if anyone had any tips on casting for walleye from shore at night in the spring??? any hot baits or spots that anyone would be willing guide me towards. Any information is greatly appreciated and you can pm if you don't want a bunch of other people to see it. I am 17 and me and my friend would like to get into this night fishing from shore because we love catching walleye but don't have access to a boat.

Generally, the entire bite takes place between opening day and memorial day.

Any stream that gets smolts gets walleye to some degree. Some are taken from the piers as well.

All fishing is at night.

7" raps in fire tiger and rbt. Cast and retrieve with a very slow retrieve. Repeat....a lot.

The lake needs to be pretty calm for this to work.

Its not easy, but it is one of the best ways to catch a legitimate 10lber. from shore.

Run2Catch covered it all.

Head out at dusk or after dark, stay as late you can.

Run your Rapala's on the surface (you want them to make a wake) or just barely under. Mix it up.

Once the shad spawn (there will be 2.7 gazillion dead ones on the beach), you're done.

Good luck.
