They are catching some nice walleyes at the Jackson dam.

I think the duck opener should be good. there are quite a few ducks around. My younger brothers went out for the youth hunt and saw alot of ducks but they only shot holes in the sky!

I think the shallow bite for walleyes will be taking off on area lakes if it hasn't already. Start casting shorelines with raps or a jig and twister and you should find some eyes. Those spots on the des moines river that are accessible should be good too like 123fish stated.

If you are going to hunt the area I think you are there were by far the most ducks and quite a few honkers at that location compared to any place else in that general vicinity other than possibly the big area a few miles north of there that I didn't look at last Saturday.

Thanks for the info. I got a phone call today and a report of the usual spot full of mallards and woodies. I cant wait for saturday morning to get here. I'll be getting the boat out tomorrow night and convert it back into duck mode. I don't bother hunting those other more northerly spots until a few weeks into the season when the crowd tends to thin out a little.

      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.
