Can the walleye be??? Has anyone been picking up and numbers of fish. I haven't been out lately but everyone I have talked to are resorting to bluegills and smallies. Any guesses as to what is causing this slow down?

I guess zero is a number.

so I guess I have caught a number. If the wind would stop I might try weeds. Reef on west end not doing anything that I can see.

Fish are in post Mayfly funk. Lasted 3 weeks last year on east end. Been almost 2 weeks this year. The few you catch are very full of small minnows ( perch ? ) They turned back on last year about this time,so maybe the upcoming warm weather will turn things around

Heartattack,

The bite picked up on the East end today! smile.gif We boated 22 and kept 12 this morning.

Leeches or crawlers on short Lindys, 17 to 26 feet. on the reefs.

Hope the worst is over now!

Sort of afraid to ask, but I have my family traveling up from Key Biscayne, FL for a long weekend this Thursday and our only means of bathing is in the lake. Has the recent cold spell dramatically driven down water temps? We were up two weekends ago (Frazer Bay) and it was around 74 degrees.

Thanks

East bay temp at 6:30 was 73.7 My daughter spent a few hours on the floaty of the dock. Very comfortable. Today was very calm and around 80 tomorrow the same so water temps and fishing should remain good.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
