The second week of the walleye season has had some very unstable weather, to say the least! Those of us that braved the cold, wind, and rain did manage to have some good fishing though. Walleyes have been hitting in almost any depth of water up to 40 feet and have been caught on almost any type of presentation!

I have been sticking to Lindy type rigs because they are much easier to use in the windy conditions that we have had all week.

At times I have had to use up to 1 ounce of weight just to stay on the bottom! I have been running a 5 foot, 8# test Cajun Red leader with a #4 or #2 Gamagatsu hook baited with a rainbow,fathead, or pike sucker and with enough weight to maintain bottom contact. We have caught walleyes in 8 feet of water to 30 feet of water using this type of rig this week. Jigs/minnows also worked well on the few calm days that we had.

Have a great opener and be safe out on the water!

The first week of the season has seen a bit of everything. Ice, snow, rain, warmth, calm, windy, you name it. The water level is extremely high right now. The walleyes have been most consistent in the mid range 15-20 foot range on minnows. Water temps in our bay are approaching the high 40's. Temps are much lower on big bay. Pike Bay opens Saturday for fishing and it should be pretty good but crowded.

Water is still too cold for consistent bass action. Northerns are roaming the shallow bays looking for something to eat. We've witnessed muskies paired up at the docks a few times. We need some real warm weather to get things really going.
