Trees are important and deep water are important! If you can combine the two you got er made. What you need to keep in mind is that the deeper water and wood are generrally their daytime resting areas. They then move out of these areas to nearby back eddies, rock bars, shallow runs, cut banks, etc... to feed after dark. so I generally fish these areas until maybe midnight and then if it slows up I might move back to the hole before dawn and try to cut off the fish returning to the hole for the day. This is generally a good time for big fish. This is just my plan of attack but there are however several different ways you can go about it. This might be a good starting point and then you can kind of figure out what works best for you and make some adjustments from there. Hope this helps you out!! Good fishin!!

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
