By far, the biggest feature that makes the walleye such a dangerous predator is the fact that it has well developed eyes. The key to the powerful eye is a reflective layer of pigment called tapetum lucidum. This reflective layer can absorb a tremendous amount of light and is able to see when their prey cannot.

Along with their well developed eyes, they also have a lateral line sense. This lateral line sense has many nerve endings and can sense minuet vibrations in the water that could be coming from an injured prey source.

Walleye also have excellent hearing and sense of smell. Their hearing and smell do not play a big roll in their life due to the fact that they already have other amazing senses to aid them in finding a meal. Walleye can provide great nutrition too.
