I got my daughter out for a couple of hours on the boat today. The best part of the day is that my outboard started on the 4th pull...cool! We used a little bit of every plastic we had at various depths...and turned up nothing. We tipped the jigs with fathead minnows as well. Only had two hits at 25' fow, and whatever it was it hit hard. It was still a hoot though, hey - on the boat literally 8 days after drilling holes through the ice - not bad!

Here's to the start of outings on the boat, instead of siting on a bucket!

I was down there enjoying the weather too. I was definatly not enjoying the bite!

It has been a long time since I had that tough of a day. We tried everything from pitching jigs to vertical jigging and even tried handlining for a while. Only a few bites for our efforts.

Yesterday was the first time I fished the river. I don't have anything to compare it to. I was reading through some of the other forums, and people are saying they think the fish have plenty of food to choose from. One guy noted all of the dead shad floating around, and he believes the fish are full. I did notice lots of dead fish floating around.

I'm gonna try and get out next weekend...maybe warmer temps will help.

There are lots of dead shad... but it is not unusual... The bite will pick up as the water temp. reaches that magical mid 40's temp... Good fishing ahead this week.

Sunday was none the better. Only one one 16" walleye C&R'd before storm chased us off. I'll be back though in anticipation of the real bite!

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
