I walleye fished Green Bay with a young man age 6 Ben and his Dad and Grandpa.

We caught over 20 walleyes and a musky. We moved a lot to find active fish and used crank baits # 5 shad Raps in 10 fow.

Speed way near 2 mph.

If you are looking to take a kid fishing or a father's day gift come fish with me and learn how and where catch Walleyes.

Fished the lower Bay this morning and ended up with a 2 man limit of walleye. The bite started out slowly, but really picked up mid-morning. Flicker shads (pink and purple)were working well in the shallow water .

Average joe report for today: fished by point sable and north from 5:45 am to 10:30. 7 eyes with only 2 legals. Flick minnows and shads. 6-18 fow. 1 on worms too. Lots of boats out, but it didn't seem to be too hot and heavy as far as seeing others grabbing the net. Good to see all those young fish, would like to catch up with them when they reach 10 lbs. Selective harvest!! Kiss

I built my own tattle flags as well. I picked up a pack of marking flags for the wire, nylon spacers, 3/4" 6-32 screws (I think that was the size), and springs. I got all my stuff from Ace.

Capn:

What I did was buy one tattle flag kit and then used it as a reference point for building them. Once I was done building them, I just returned the kit (unopened of course). For the wire, I just bought a roll of it. I ended up going to fleet farm (was already there), 2 menards and a local hardware store. Skip Fleet and menards, and go right to a hardware store. It will save you a lot of time and cost only a little bit more.

Couple things to note, that I didn't think of at the time. You don't need an extra screw or extra key rings,as long as you currently have a flag and a clip. Also, the screw and spring tension take some time to adjust, but you can't really adjust them perfectly until you're pulling some lures in the water.

Here is the video I used as reference. Hope this helps! https://youtu.be/pLqcnvIxym0

I am heading up this weekend to do some walleye and muskie fishing on the lower bay. With the current water temps, are both species in the same general area? I'd prefer to not have to take the boat out and drive to a different section of the lake (or go up the river)just to switch from one to the other. I'd imagine that the water temps for memorial day are significantly warmer this year compared to last so I'm interested if the muskies are already gone from the Fox. Any help would be appreciated!

Catch If i made a pass thru those marks and no bites with the depth of water I personally would pass on those fish if you see yellow in the middle ofthe fish those would be eyes I would think because of the depth they are probably carp due to the size of arcs. They could also be cats or white fish but my guess carp get out to deeper water start in 10-12ft make apass after you mark fish pm will talk more

Went out last night for a couple hours and got 2 eaters eyes, a small one and a sheep in 9-11 FOW. Also went up a little shallow towards the evening at about 6-8FOW. Marked alot of fish, and pretty big marks too most suspended, what are they? I dont know what they were but they sure wouldnt bite! Good luck and stay safe!

Wish respect to fish depth readings on sonar. These distances are not a vertical reading of the depth of the fish, but a distance from the fish to the transducer.

For instance. a fish marked at 18 ft in 20 ft of water, is not a a depth of 18 feet, but is 18 feet from the transducer, so it may me vertical or off to the side of the boat, depending on transducer angle and water depth. Running you sensitivity at higher readings, where your screen 60-70 percent clutter, will show more accurately. So sensitivity = information. Higher sensitivity = more sonar information. You'll be changing your sensitivity several times as you change depths.

I got a few dvd's from doctorsonar.com, which provides a wealth on information on using your sonar.

Here's a good starter article from lowarance.

good luck

those are walleye on your locator at 13.5ft now run your baits up higher then the fish up to 2ft eyes look up for the bait now u have to figure out whats going to get them going. think of the forage andsize u will put fish in the boat fast hint: alwife and smelt are in the bay now and they are 2 to 3 inches long try pulling smaller baits like 5's
