Been here since Sunday.....limited out on walleye both Sunday and Monday nights.... all males ... nothing in the mornings.... Old school tactics paying off.....water warm
MOON PHASE (10%)
Fishing was tough for us opening weekend. Tried rocky areas on Round, Pike and Turner thinking the Walleyes would be on the spawn but no luck at all. Sunday night we stayed in and fished off the pier. Caught and released 18 Crappie. Go figure.
Fished the opener at Round Lake. Water Temps at 41.7f at the surface. We marked fish at depth but I assume the temps were even colder at 15-20feet. Slow action and small eyes 10-12". Heard good things about the Wisconsin River system including Lake Alice and Mowhawksin. Slow bite on Round for me and reports from those fishing Pike Lake were similar. Walleye Spawn will likely be quick and difficult to time. Panfish are still awol including Crappie, Bluegill and Perch.
Hey yo....to all you Pike/Round lake fanatics.....been a while for sure....wondering what it looks like up there on May 1st? Heading up after the Opening weekend...first time in 30 years....can anyone update ice conditions? Thanks and look forward meeting up with you next week....
