Walleyes are notorious short strikers. They will often nip at a plastic worm or pork rind trailer. In such cases, a tail hook added to the end of the lure will often succeed in hooking them.

The best time to fish for muskies is during the few days surrounding the new or full moon. The big toothy fish feed heaviest at this time.
