Fish are biting despite the high water. Walleyes last weekend and crappies the last 2 days. Saturday we had 44 crappies and yesterday I had a limit in 2 hours by myself. All the largemouths and whitebass I wanted to catch after the crappie limit was reached. Crappies in brush and walleye on current breaks.

Was only out from 6p-sunset. Started out fishing the backwater for some pans...after no bites went to the banks along the channel fishing rip rap. Picked up a 16 1/2 and 13 1/2 walleye and a Northern so small he hardly had teeth. All in about 100 yards. Fish were in 4-6' and picked up on a rattletrap.

Fished pool 13 Tuesday with two great fisherman from Pearl City ILL. Water Temp has warmed up nicely to 51 degrees when we lunched the boat by the Bellevue dam. There were still some boats fishing walleyes around the bullnose and also the big Eddie across the river on the ILL side. our plan was to fish down river in clam bed areas and try to find walleyes staging for the spawn. We were rigged with 3-way Rapala rigs and 3 to 4 ounce pencil weights. (the Bait Shack in Dubuque has all the gear you need for this and Rick or Matt will show you how to set these up) This is the right time of the year to find lots of nice size male walleyes waiting for the females to come in and spawn her eggs. I pull the 3-ways 1/2 to 1 mph up stream and work the boat from shallow out to around 20ft, keeping track of the depth when a fish strikes. We had to work for our bites Tuesday but it was steady thru the day we caught all male walleyes "Yes they were milking there sperm in the boat". Dennis would run 2 rods from the front of the boat one out each side, and Tom would run 2 rods from the back utilizing the rod holders. We used the 4 ounce pencil weights from bow, and 3 ounce weights in the back of the boat this keeps the baits spread out. Ended the day with some super nice male walleyes 5 of the fish were in the slot size "too big to keep" biggest 23 1/2" all released. We boxed 5 really nice eaters 3 were 19 inchers perfect eaters. First Guide trip out with my new Ranger Boat. Looking forward to the next trip, and Good luck Fishing. Cool
