The word for the weekend was... fish shallow. We found lots of walleyes in shallow in the bays on the opener. They were on sand or gravel from six to twelve feet deep. We caught most on the NE side from 6am to noon on Saturday, then it really slowed down. Caught 12 fish - 6 were keepers in that time slot.We caught all our fish on leeches. 7-9 ft snells. Hook colors were orange, lime green and pink. Water temp was about 48.

Sunday we did a bit better and the fish got a bit more aggresive. We were back on the sand on the NE side and caught 11 with the largest being a 26. They were also deeper... in the 18 foot range. All in all, I think the opener was better then last year. We seemed to have hit it right during the spawn.

That was some serious wind on Saturday Big-Bite. I would assume everybody was stacked on the N/W side of the lake?

Can we assume it wasn't you that landed the 26"er?

thanks for the report!

nice big bite atleast someone had luck. our cabin is in wahkon and we got little to nothing and believe me i threw everything at them with every technique i had really was let down this year. we trolled, drifted , lindy'd, and boober fished our entire bay from wallye dundees out to half moon i landed a 17" smally and a 18' smally ill get pics up soon pretty slow. beer was cold though all that mattered. we were marking lots of fish i was out alone saturday morning rough riding had a ton on the markum couldnt get a single damn thing to hit i think i threw every color at them. friday night was a joke hopefully things will turn for the best this year there are some things about the netting limit this year i feel if i express myself i would get infraction so ill keep that to myself all i have to say is 15,000 lbs in fillets is a joke. mad smiley
