Was out and boated a 9.2 and four other keepers trolling north of lockport. The water was at 46.4 and the walleye were starting to show signs of early morning and late evening bite. Cranks in the silver/white with black or green backs, blues with white sides (too bad rapala went to the chrome silver and orange!). The jig wasn't as good as I'd thought it would be but maybe I wasn't as persistent as I should have been. Hey anybody want-a-go-a-fishing? It was snowing today with a high of 40 some.......

Just for your information.... the Red is at 38 f and the bite has shifted to the jig and minnow for the largest part --- I cranked for 4 hours and could scratch up only one smaller walleye. I did see a few good ones caught on the jig on Saturday but was unable to convert on any big fish myself.

The jig was my most effective tool but the wind and 33-34F temps made fishing on Saturday a bit uncomfortable. The bite was best earlier am and later p.m. in traditional jigging spots. Larger salted shiners seemed to be best we also put two smaller shiners on our jigs when we can located the bigger ones).
I also heard the fishing was tough Wed and Thurs as the lockmaster at Lockport had opened the gates up fully (perhaps anticipating a bit of run-off from the snowfall experienced by you folks south of the border). Generally it takes a couple/three days for things to settle and the fishing to pick up again. Draw-down this year was very gradual (as we really lacked any significant precip in the valley) and fishing had remained very good up until this past week's opening of the gates. It still might be good this week if the weather is to moderate as predicted.

A couple more weeks to go and it's pretty much over --- until the ice goes on in earlier December eh!

Keep those hooks sharp!
