Col Ron----Taking you tip seriously, our boat has agreed to spend more time after dark on the water.Almost all of my night time Walleye fishing has been a couple of hours after sunset anchored down with slip bobbers{my personal favorite way to enjoy Walleye fishing}. Also we are going to get out before sunrise more this year {weather permitting}. My question is what techniques would be your choises during the middle of June. I hope I am not asking to much of you guys, I am just trying to widen my presentations in order to be a better Walleye fisherman. ALSO THANKS CLARK FOR CORRECTING MY MISTAKES.

There are some great rock piles on the south side of Star Island that are only about 8 feet deep. At night the walleyes come in and feed on them. Your slip bobbers would work, personally, I like trolling over the rocks with small rapala's about #5, Chartruse over white. Bounce it right on the rocks. Or, as you suggested, anchor 20 yards off the rocks and throw your slip bobbers on top of the rocks with a leech and jig/ minnow and jig. It should work.
You may also want to try the rock pile by the dam (out in the middle of the lake). At night that can really be good!!! The rocks on the north shore up by the dam has been good for years at night, (they are located directly north of the rockpile, near the large antenna on the shoreline-find them during the day so you can locate them at night).

Good luck,

Col Ron

Col Ron-----Thanks for great ideas !!! Slip bobbering on the rocks close to deep water makes alot of sense. I already know of a rocky point near deep water on the southeast corner of Cass{found it about 10 yrs ago and caught nice size jumbo perch on it during late morning} Will spend a calm afternoon and look for other attractive looking rock piles on the southside. Also looking forward to my first trip to pikes bay.

On the south side of Star Island,, if you go out almost straight from the public camp ground, you should see the 8 foot rocks, maybe a 1/2 mile out.

Pike Bay, is my favorite. Generally, fish the drop off all the way down on the south end of the lake-about in the middle of the camp ground on the shoreline. Fish in 18 to 20 feet of water, look on your sonar for the bottom to change, that is where the big walleye hang out, the drop off goes in a "S" pattern and is the best spot on the lake. In case of a storm/ lightening, beach the boat at the camp ground, there are brick out houses there for protection, been in there many of times. We have two wall hangers from that shoreline/ weedline. 22 years ago, my son caught a 31" walleye at the age of 10, and 6 years ago, my daughter caught a 30" walleye there, broke a gill plate and had to mount that one. Very unusual, but when the wind is calm, or a slow wind from the south, the fishing is great there.

Yep, your right. When I enter Pikes, I go straight south till I hit water at least 4 feet. Good point.
