After spending time in the office today checking fishermen out as they were leaving, all in all it was a pretty good weekend. The numbers of Walleye caught per house were down a little, but some nice ones were caught and released and fishermen for the most were pretty happy. A couple 40″ plus Northern were caught and released as well and numerous reports of fishermen setting hooks and breaking lines. The Perch bite was slow for most as not many “Jumbos” were caught. Most were in the 8 to 9″ range and released.
The lack of snow cover made things pretty slick out there and fishermen that do not have ice cleats more than likely took a spill. Some snow cover would help that out, plus improve the fishing a little I would think.
Keep a Tight LIne! Eddy
