I'm not very good at walleye in pits by any means, but the few i've gotten seem to like rock cover and shallower water(for a pit) and early spring I would look for a dark bottom. You also have to be a ninja when coming in, long casts and move quite. Good luck :)

Along with the darker bottom and rock areas, focus on the areas that have springs if you know where they are at. You will have warmer water.
