Hi Vaughan….During a full moon (full, old moon), there is a lot of light at night and walleye take advantage of nocturnal conditions and feed heavily. During a new moon (young, small moon), there is much less light penetration and walleye tend to feed more during the day than at night. Walleye migrate quite a bit after dark and venture into much shallower water than they would normally during the day. Fishing “contact-points”, either from shore or from a boat like; points, bars, shoals, reefs, etc. and fishing from 3′-10′ depth can be very productive. One of the best presentations to use is just to cast, or troll a Rapala Husky Jerk in size #12 or #14….God bless you, Italo
