I would use a 6 ft or 6 1/2 ft. medium action / Graphite composite spinning rod with reel equiped w / 6, 8, or maybe 10 lb. line as needed for the Walleyes.
Northerns require at least 14 lb with 17 and 20 lb. = being even better for confidence. A baitcasting reel and rod MH is best choice, Then a Spinning reel /rod 6 1/2 ft. MH action with extra line spools one each = 14, 17, 20 lb.
Should you be one that like Spincast reels then the older Zebco series pre 1980 = The Zebco One, Omega One and Omega 191, will hold 10-20 lb test line just fine. So will an 808 or 888 they are just heavy to use for lots of casting though. And a John Sabra.Will hold up to 20 lb. test just fine. A good solid glass rod 6 1/2 ft Medium or MH will work fine.
GOOD LUCK. <!--graemlin:;)-->
