Fishing has been excellent, most full day guided trips going over 30-fish days. Walleye are moving all over the system now, look for alewife near rock humps with clear water to slightly stained. Jigging with paddletails are producing varied results and casting crankbaits producing some days. Casting is far more productive than trolling. Hint: don’t troll--fish are fast figuring out that a horizontal moving bait is going to get them hurt. If you have to troll, run crankbaits, hitting bottom with speed usually around 1.6 to 2.2mph. All baits should look like a shad or alewife. God bless and good fishing!

Fish are coming on trolling, but mostly jigs are a far better and more consistent option. Paddle tails and fluke style baits with heavy jigs being dominant. Jigging fast with a pause. Look for shallow rocks with bait; a little wind always helps. Catching 10 to 35 fish has been common. Good Fishing!

Fishing was what I expected--fast and furious. 30+ walleye days being the norm. This should last for a couple of weeks, until the fish start to move a little farther out into the Bay. Trolling is the key to get on these bigger groups of fish. Trolling crankbaits seems to be the best, with spinners sometimes being a little better. Speeds of 1.2 to 1.8 being the key to success. Good fishing!
