We were up last week and did quite well on smallies in the 3-4 lb class on windy main lake pts on x-raps. find the windiest point where water is funneling into the narrow section and hammer with x-raps. Caught one over 5 and many in the 3-4lb class. See pictures on previous post with my name. good luck - we had a blast.

Temps are looking warm for the next week, I would expect that they will be fanning the beds soon. As of right, I caught a few in about 5 feet of water in Redgut the other day. As wstierney said X-Raps are a good way to start. I also caught quite a few on plastics.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
