East Winds

22 05 2019

Not quite sure if a week of east winds helped or hurt walleye yields this past five days. Mixed reports have many of us scratching our heads. Some bodies of water have been fantastic since the opener and others not so much. Lakes that have been good seemed to have cooler water with fish still in their spawning areas. Lakes that were a bit tougher had temperatures in the low 50’s with fish scattered. Temps are warming throughout the area though. Some hatches have started which should trigger the walleye to school up and start to feed. Lake trout action has been pretty good, fish were being caught as shallow as 10 feet and as deep as 50. Smallmouth didn’t seem to mind an east wind, action was steady all week for those pursuing the bronze backs.
