Good fish Ryan.

HL, the bite is very consistant and the patterns are simple at this time. Main presentations consists of a wide range of jigging type lures. Lead heads, lead heads jigs with rattles and or blades attached. I have been enjoying great results fishing lures such as Northland's "Buck Shot" Rattles.....their "New" Red/black Glo tipped with a salty has been hot!

Grapelike clusters or single warty growths? (Walleye dermal sarcoma or lymphocystis)

Nice fish!

      I use my 1660 Lund Pro-V Tiller for fishing Superior all of the time. I have 2' of track on both sides to hold my 4 aluminum rod holders and my triple trees. If you start using magnum dipsys with the ring they can pull hard enough to break most plastic rod holders. In the spring you are basically fishing the top 15' with plugs so any rod holder will do. Once you start trying to get to 40' and beyond is when you need to beef things up. I also have a mast and use the single big boards that Marine General sells for getting a good spread with you plugs. Once summer rolls around I will use Yellow Birds with 5 colors of lead on the outside  and dipsy's with 65lb Power Pro or steel depending on what depth I am trying to achieve to pull spoons or flies.

      I see that the Royal Dutchman website had a blurb a couple days (2/17) ago that said nothing was happening yet, they also don't know how thick the ice is.  As usual hoping for a long spring season before it closes for walleye.  On a positive note most of the snow must have already melted with the record warmth so maybe won't be so much to cause runoff later on?
