Metro lakes give up a few EYES!!

Recommended Posts

Fished in the metro for opener and didn't have to bad of luck. We had seven walleyes on Sat. Morning. Last night we caught four more. Now tonight we had some real dandies. We had two over 22" and a five others.

We fished a few different patterns with most of our fish coming on shallow rocks with crankbaits. We also caught a few on bobber and a leech and a jig and a minnow. We fished just outside the milfoil, 13-15 ft of water today and caught a few. At sunset we worked the shallow rocks with cranks. I will try and get some pics up asap. Nice healthy looking fish.

Tyman- Sorry bud but I can't give out that much info. I will tell you how I caught them but not where. Just try and learn the patterns and then you can duplicate it with success in a lot of lakes.
Good Luck

The milfoil part doesn't give it away, but the presence of rocks sure narrows it down!!!!!

The shallow rocks at dark are where the nice walleyes lerk!! Atleast for another week or so until the water temps rise.

Not sure how they will go tonight after all that rain. We'll see I guess...

Hey Matt,
Any suggestions on what type of cranks seem to work better on this shallow rock pattern?

Scalescratcher, I found two baits that produced a lot of fish this weekend. The first was a shallow running NO. 7 Firetiger or Perch colored shad Rap. The other was a Storm JR. Thunderstick. The old ones(before Rapala started making them) are the best if you have any in your box. They just don't make them like they used too. Either of these baits will get the Walleyes going on the shallow rocks in the spring. This will put big walleyes in the boat and numbers of them. You will find that you won't catch too many small ones on cranks. Just big (16-30") aggresive walleyes eat cranks.
