The Walleye bite is picking up pretty good now with the warmer water temps, especially on the north end. Fishermen are catching Walleyes in the harvest slot along with bigger ones also. From what pictures I’ve seen so far, the Walleyes look healthy which is a good sign. The Bass Opener was today also and there were reports of some pretty good catches too.
People around the lake are still putting in docks and in the last week, and finally people are starting to pick up their boats from winter storage. The gas prices have dropped 10 cents a gallon in the last week. I hope they keep dropping. I think this whole gas price hike just before the tourist season is a set up by the oil companies and refinery owners to take advantage of the consumer at a time when they want to get away for the holidays and summer vacations…Right now we have enough to deal with up here to have that piled on us too.
Keep a Tight Line!! Eddy
