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!

Fishing has been improving as the days get longer. Look for windy days for the walleyes to set up on the windy side of the first break lines and inside elbows where wind will funnel walleyes and baitfish into areas. This is when jigging and casting crankbaits can out produce trolling just crankbaits. Best speeds have been 1.4 to 1.8. Good fishing!

Fishing has been good to moderate with crankbaits being the number one lure with some jigging thrown in, but trolling crankbaits in 4 to 8 feet or off the first break of the shoreline being the key. Expect a lot of males with an occasional female. Look for fish within 2 miles of the outlet of rivers and warm water. Good fishing!
