The Walleye Are Turning On!
This last weekend has been a turning point in walleye fishing. The water temps have warmed along up with the fishing; temperatures are reaching around 63-65 degrees. Quite a few reports have been coming in about walleyes being caught in various ways. Pitching jigs and plastics in to the weed lines in about 6-8 feet of water have been producing walleyes. Pitching cranks into these same weed lines has also been effective.
Bobber fishing is starting to take off, try finding the weed lines and pulling up short in about 8-10 feet of water and then cast your bobber towards the shallower weeds. Leeches with a plain hook or a small jig head underneath the bobber has been working well. A key to remember when fishing shallow this time of year is that the water is still very clear, try not to come cruising up to a spot really fast as it may spook the fish that are holding there. Instead try to sneak your way into an area slowly.
Good luck to everyone and enjoy this nice weather we have!
