I decided to sneak out of the house after supper for a quick fish on Lotus Lake in the kayak. Boy did I make a good decision to go! The winds were coming in from the north and I spotted a newly downed tree on the shores of Carver Beach park. The tree provided a nice break from the wind and waves so I fished behind it with a Road Runner jig head tipped with a Powerbait 2 inch minnow.
No pan fish were found, but surprisingly I hooked into a nice walleye of about 24 inches! She was thick and put up a great fight on my 3lb test pan fish setup. Boy was I stoked! The only other fish I managed to catch was a small large mouth bass. Man I can't wait for the opener in a couple weeks!
