We fished the south/ southest part of the lake on Sun morning. Launched out of Fther Hennepin. We didn't have to go very far to catch fish. We started drifting with leaches on snells 6-9 feet in length. Had a couple in the boat and a few misses on first drift. We made a few passes and picked up a few nice eater/keeper size fish. We then moved a little north and fished hawkbill area. There the luck was about the same a few too big and small but a nice mix of keepers. The bite was not fast and ferious, but steady enough to keep us interested. We packed up a little after 1:00 (just before the heavier rain) with 10 keepers between 4 guys in the boat. Biggest was 24". It was a good day out there, I can't wait to get back out!

Thanks for the report.

When you drift, how fast do you like to go (with the snells) and what size weight do you use?

I didn't have the GPS with (not in my boat) but we used a drift sock to slow us down a bit and that seemed to help. I think most of us were using 1/4 oz weights. Were were using red, orange, chartruese hooks with green or red beeds. The color didn't seem to make a big difference. Good luck on the pond!

      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.
