Fished the 1st part of this week and all was great, walleyes were plentyful, even the kids caught some. Caught several 17-19" smallies, some bluegills (to my surprise they had eggs in the bellies yet), caught a bunch of northern pike, in one instance, I had to reach to the back of the boat to grab a pliers while I kept a northern in the water that I had on a buzz bait, upon returning, there was...what I would guess to be, was a 40" inch either pike or musky trying to eat the pike I had on my line (as it was splashing around), it soon spoked away and that was really really cool. This is a great place to fish and I will soon return (stayed at Timber Bay).

Finishing the week here and fishing is picking up for everybody. Pretty much the same as last report, if you find a structure holding fishing move the minnow very slowly. I was catching everthing from 9' to 13' fow. If you not getting hung up you're fishing too high. I did find one spot where I was marking the fish 10' down in 12' fow and I thought they were crappies. Turned out they were pencil walleyes. The bigger fish were in the rocks below.

Expect a lot if pencils, Fishing tournament last weekend had 400 anglers largest fish about 5lb.

I was told crappies just starting to spawn.

Some signs of a May fly hatch are here, wind has been changing direction everyday and the fishing has been tough. After pulling spinners for 3 days and catching 1 walleye, 1 perch, 1 northern, I did mark some good structure which I sat on for an afternoon only moving twice. Using a jig and minnow a limit of small walleye was produced. These fish seem to hold tight to the bottom and rocks. I have to move the bait agonizingly slow. I did not catch any walleyes over 14 inches perch ranged from 7 to 12 inches.

Hats off to Timber Bay Lodge. First class facility and service.

Talked to a resort on the lake and they told me the walley bite has been tough. The opener till now has seen few fish caught. I will be up there next week. Look for a report.
