New to walleye fishing

Hi all, I will be going to Raystown later this month. It will be a mixed bag trip for stripers, lake trout and maybe walleye. I have never specifically targeted walleye though. Any tips or tricks you might be willing to share with me about fishing for them at night would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Re: New to walleye fishing

I spend the month of Oct. at Raystown targeting striper and pan fish. Never targeted lake trout or walleye, but have a fishing friend that targets lake trout by trolling large spoons behind a Luhr Jensen diver and trolls with an electric motor about 2mph, I'm going to try this method this Oct. I am told walleye at Raystown are tough, but that night time striper fishermen occasionally hook up on one. Have been told that if you want to targer walleye try in trough creek area of the lake.

Not a lot of useful info. but thats the extent of my knowledge.

Might be worth hiring a guide for a day trip and pay close attention to how and where he fishes.

If you spend enough time on the lake you will eventually learn to recognize the guide boats,and you can learn where to fish from observing, but not much as far as technique unless you actually hire one.

I am told Clappers Guide Service is a good guide to hire, never did hire him myself but some say he is not shy about telling you what he knows.

Thanks for the tip on Trough Creek. I've picked up one or two walleye at night casting for stripers. But nothing consistent.
I usually fish for lakers in November. Downriggers and home made spoons at the 40' range always produce. Try the back of beer barrel and the point off marker 3. Too bad they taste like hot garbage.

Try taking as much of the dark meat off of the trout filets as possible , then there is a fish cake recipe on here somewhere that works real good.
