Today was my first open water trip of the season and it ended with a nice 24" walleye. Nothing fancy just a jig and a minnow, its was more luck than skill. The area was full of quillback suckers and I would snag one on every other cast. The walleye was the only "real" bite I had in the 2 hours I was fishing.
Made it out again tonight and managed another smaller walleye, maybe 16 inches. The water is still a little cold for the bite to be really hot. Hopefully as the water level falls a little we'll see more fish.
I have pictures but they make it WAY to obvious as to where I am. There isn't much room to fish right now so I want to keep the spot quiet. On the plus side the spot is tough to get to right now, it takes a pretty tricky hike along a steep hillside to get to.
I went yesterday looking for crappies water not warm enough yet to come into shallows Need to get about 15 degrees more warmer but it was fun just to get out. While not getting any crappies had one heck of a northern come into about about 4 feet of water he fought for about ten min before breaking my line he jumped over a partially sunk log breaking my line. by the way even if i brought him in I would have had to release him as it is not opener yet.
Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~ Chuck Clark
