5/18 report

Walleyes seem to be very scattered. The weather was perfect today with clouds and a nice chop. Two guys fished nine hours. Caught a total of 23 and went home with our 8 fish limit. The bite was steady all day. The shallow fish would not go for us. All fish came from 18-23 f.o.w. The sand to mud transitions were the ticket. Drift speed was critical too.

Great report and thanks for the info. With out getting specific what area of the lake, north end, west side? You said drift speed was critical, is it still real slow? Thanks for the help, heading up tonight. grin.gif

Hit the water, you're never sorry when you're fishin. I'll be up late tonight and on the water around 6am tomorrow. I have heard better reports from the north end sand during mid week. Good luck

Much of the lake has picked up. The water has warmed up 5 degrees since sunday. The north end sand has been good in spots and not so good in others. That's fishing though, right. The shoreline related rocks are kicking out some fish too. If you don't get into them don't hesitate to move. I'm surprised at the size of the perch the smaller walleyes are spitting up. Should be a decent year with plenty of 12 to 15 inch fish to go around.

Good Luck!

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?

      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
