Walleye are the largest member of the perch family. Its dark olive brown to golden brown body may be splotched with lighter colors. The dorsal fin maybe streaked, blotched or palin, but lacks clear spots and there is big blotch at the back edge, distinguising it from a sauger.
Walleyes get their name from their huge marble like eyes, which feature a layer of reflective pigment. This gives the fish a distinctively walleyed look, but it also means that the walleye can see quite well in dim light. This well developed night vision also means that walleyes do a great deal of their feeding after dark.
One of the things that make walleyes such a popular sport fish is their unpredictability. Walleyes may bit like crazy for a couple of days, only to disappear from view with no explanation. And when walleyes decide to stop taking the bait, no amount of coaxing can make them bite.
