One more cast-  I agree with everything you said. Only issue is-  this world is full of people and people wreck everything. Case in point- deer hunting.

Good day to lay low indeed. 

Speaking of low, I see a lot of guys keeping 3 walleyes here. It's legal and everything, but I honestly believe we all should vote against it and lower the fish kept this time of year. It was said years ago that this river would produce the next state record soon. Well that's far from reality now. Rules of 1 walleye at 28" is coming up soon, but even at 28" do you really wanna mount or even eat that walleye?

Given trolling on the bay isn't helping either, most people are good about it, but then there are some... where they post a bunch of 27" - 30" walleyes that they fried up. I'm sure most of us here would like to see bigger fish in the river this time of year, and lowering the fish kept might help.

This all can be seen in deer hunting as well, ease off the release / trigger for a couple years,  next thing you know you have more and bigger deer.

WEATHER

Just in case anyone is thinking of dumping your boat in the river to try it....

  • Wind from the N/NE 15/25mph and gusting.
  • Whitecaps on the river(3-4 ft).
  • Snow/sleet/freezing rain

Good day to lay low.

Boy did I hit it wrong - made a hundred plus mile drive on Wed. to get in on some pre spring run walleye fishing in the warm weather along with a couple hundred other guys with the same thinking. Fished shallow to 2 ft. and deep to 22 ft. with plastics, jigs, minnows, lindy's, and  even jigging spoons. Had 2 short hits and misses in the deeper channel and that was it.  Went back home with my tail between my legs and a bruise to my ego. Saw 3 fish boated all morning. It must be the water was to dirty, there was to much boat traffic etc. etc.  A great fishery but certainly does not come with any guarantees. One thing is for certain I'll be back.

Went out today in the cold and windy day but it was better than sitting at home. We got a two man limit of 18 to 20 inch male eye's once the sun came out very slow before that. Just want to say we had the pleasure of fishing next to Larry Smith today from Larry Smith outdoors what a great guy he is big shout out to him. We met him at the ice fish show in Milwaukee he went out of his way to give us a bag of beef jerky how many fishing guides do that. Thank you again Larry for your kindness and hope to see you again out on the water tight lines till then.

Fished Tuesday and Wednesday using jig and minnow, and a jig with a trimmed down ring worm. Walleyes ran from 14 to 20", only one female. Near the dam and Armada I used a 1/2 oz orange jig and fished 20-30 ft slipping down the river. Later I fished in 6 foot of water downstream and used a 1/4 oz lime jig anchoring up and casting with a slow lift and drag routine. Water was much clearer and the bite was better on Tuesday. For me, no fast action,only one or two eyes an hour. Also caught two 19"'whitefish.

Ditto the report from JS.
