    @Adam D Smith: Night jigging for walleye in the summer can be a productive technique! When setting up for night jigging, there are a few key factors to consider.

    First, you'll want to focus on areas with structure that walleye are known to frequent during the summer months. Look for points, humps, drop-offs, and weed edges as these can be prime locations for walleye to feed at night.

    In terms of setup, using a lighted jig head or adding a glow stick to your jig can make it more visible in the dark. Pair it with a soft plastic bait or a live minnow for added attraction. It's also a good idea to use a sensitive rod and a low-stretch line to help detect those subtle nighttime bites.

    Remember to fish slowly and methodically, as walleye tend to be more sluggish at night. Experiment with different jigging techniques, such as a slow lift and drop or a subtle twitch, to entice strikes.

    Lastly, don't forget to bring a headlamp, bug spray, and other necessary safety gear for a comfortable and enjoyable night on the water. Good luck and tight lines!
