I think the bite is slowing down from all the reports I have heard. This is also the time of year the the walleye bite practically comes to a stand still. The windows of opportunity really begin to shrink, like a 15 minute window, until things start wraming up again near breakup. I'm sure there are localized areas that the bite is still going on, but I was just making a generalization.

good luck!

Yeah the only people that are catching any are the ones that move a lot. We've picked up a few, but we usually catch them when we move to a new spot. My bro moved the house on Sunday and on Sunday evening he caught 3 and on monday morning he caught 4. But than again some spots we get skunked. The lake we fish get's to I think 28 feet or so and we've picked them and the crappies up in 18 fow. Definitely the slow time of year like Dead said though.

Honestly I think it does matter, we haven't caught anything on the tipups with decent shiners, or suckers. We've been catching them on smaller chubs or even crappie minnows on our rods in the fishhouse. With the run and gun thing, we don't really move too much we drill drill drill and find some decent NEW structure and we fish it. If it doesn't pan out we'll try a new spot the next evening. Definitely and evening bite so we stay put when prime time comes rolling in.

This is the time of year to head to LOTW if you have a free weekend. Don't bother with the maybe-one-fish-a-night junk.

      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.

      This year I will be able to leave Finn at home, so I can fish. @Cret Jigs @Shack Anyone I missed come and join the fun. Let's get this set so we have time draw a crowd!
