The fish are biting! I am exclusively trolling with lead core and its working. I get my limits each day, with a few bonus lunker perch thrown in. I even managed a couple of big crappies in the evening. I spend a lot of time on the water each day to do this however.  I am getting them around 23 ft. With 90ft of leadcore. #5 flicker shads are working but I have used other baits too.  The weather has been cold and rainy. The water temp when I started was about 63 deg. Now it is hovering around 61. I have a couple of days left, I hope there is breaks in the weather for me to fish.

mtheis  are you on west end' , east end or both ?   that is great to hear.  I have some guys coming up in 2 weeks  very inexperienced fisherman & it would be nice just to put the leadcore in the holder & let them catch some.

East end. I have transitioned to using Rapala Jointed Minnows now and I am catching a few more fish. Firetiger. Look for fish above the bottom and try to keep your baits at that depth. Good luck! It is cold here and the wind doesn't stop.

Heading up Wednesday. For non-leadcore fisherman (walleyes) has it fully transitioned to a minnow bite or or some of you still using crawlers?

 

Thanks

It’s been jig-minnow for me. Boated 32 walleye today. Lots of nice fish up to 17”. But no slot fish. Caught everything in 22’ to 30’. East end.
