Float fishing or bobber fishing is a great way to target actively feeding walleye. With its eyes positioned on the top of its head, a walleye feeds upward. You can learn how to take advantage of this trait by fishing a float. A float will allow you to position your bait precisely above the fish. A Thill slip float will let you make quick adjustments to the depth you're fishing. For this vertical presentation, a jig will give a more natural and lifelike appearance than a crawler or a minnow.

As the waters warm up, the fish become more aggressive. Cast a shallow-running crankbait near some cover or along a transition and don't be afraid to crank it fast and move it quickly. Target wind-blown shorelines to find concentrations of fish. If the bite slows down, slow your retrieve to keep the bait in the strike zone a little longer. Whether you're fishing for walleye, bass, or pike, this can keep the bite going and put more fish in the boat.
