The fish are spread out. Depending on the wind, and the size of your boat; there is any number of things you can try. Long lining crank baits over the mid lake mud flats is producing bigger fish, the reefs are holding good numbers of eaters, with some big ones mixed in. You can target those with live bait (leeches worked best for us in the tourney)on bottom bouncers and spinners, jigs, or slip bobbers. If it's dead calm, either float and jig, or troll those spinners. Once you find an active area, anchoring and slip bobbering might be the ticket--again the wind will be a big factor here. I haven't tried any weed beds, but I have no doubt you can catch fish there too. Good luck, let us know how you do.

We trolled chartruese and blue/silver No. 5 Rapalas at really slow speeds (1 1/2mph) over the mud flats and surrounding rockpiles just 4 miles or so out from Long Point. Did well both on the bottom at 35ft. But also mid-depth at about 20ft., which produced our biggest walleyes...4 over 20" released.

We were using the clip-on weights (3-4 oz.)about 15ft. above the lures that have become our norm since last year. No problem getting our 4 keepers in just a few hours of fun. Our biggest problem was the WIND! Blew up some very large waves...to over 3 and 4 feet at times. The next day, Monday, was impossible to fish..way too nasty out there to enjoy yourself.

On Sunday, the bite really took off when the wind suddenly changed from easterlies to southwesterlies. Remember the old adage, 'Wind from the west..fish bite the best'.? Sure worked this time!

We also hit some smaller fish in just blind trolling...just cruising and relaxing. No structure..36 ft. Off towards Archies Reef, but not that far west.

We had crawlers, but never used anything but the lures. No fuss there! The hit is much more exciting with the Rapalas.

We will be out there trying it again on Thursday, Fri, and for the next 10 days or so. Hail 'Pompano' on VHF 6, 68, if you need an update on the water.

Bring lots of hooks, snells, weights and jigs if you plan to fish the reefs. We've also had good success trolling reef runners 150 ft. behing the boat on 8 lb fireling. No problem getting them down to 30+ feet. Good luck and anyone have updated info on specific locations and what's working for walleyes?? Thanks
