Walleyes were willing biters on three outings last week and again last night. The super shallow bite has tapered a bit. Early last week they were up as shallow as possible as long as the water was broken with some sort of breeze. When it layed down flat they were harder to get, but only had to try a couple feet deeper. Jigs. Crankbaits. Minnow w/ plain hook and splitshot all worked equally well. Last night's bite was substantially more slow, but still plenty of fish to be found on the first break, 4-8 FOW. Weedless jigs and tuffies, aggressively jump the jig and keep contact with it, finger on the line as it drops back to the bottom, with braided line and fluorocarbon leader you'll feel the "pop" through the somewhat slack line as the fish eats it on the drop, drop rod tip, reel up slack and set the hook, keep moving along the shorelines and you'll find them, at least for now. Fishing faster and moving along seems to get the bigger bites. Slowing down and slowly dragging jigs through an area is certainly more thorough, but produced many more smaller males than larger fish. A few males still milking, released all females on all outings, catching two 18" full of eggs, 2 around 21" in the slot and one over that were all full of eggs and all released. It's a tough thing to explain to a kid why we keep the 16" but not the 21". He got the largest two released fish last week on his own crankbait that he picked out, and then lost it to a pike. Pike starting to be more prevalent in same areas and loosing lots of jigs to them as well.
Did not go through the channel near the bog on the way up to Cedar Falls, but it appears to be back to the east side.
