I went out on Wednesday and fished from the spillway towards Metro. Chartruese blades with gulp worms/minnows worked again. I pulled bigger blades this time and the biggest fish came on a gold willow leaf blade painted chartruese yellow on the front side only, with a 6" gulp natural night crawler. The fish are starting to scatter more. Some are shallow and some are deep. Look for the emergent cabbage growth. You will have to find them by trial and error. I am going out Saturday afternoon and will probably fish in the 11-12ft range to start. It is going to be close to 90 degrees so load up on sun block and water.
I am going to run some flat fish on three ways as well as a crank or two. Planer boards will have harnesses on bottom bouncers.
thanks madwags for the info, everytime I check this report you have a report, you must fish everyday, anyway alot of us really appreciate the updates.
Also are you the madwags for G.P.North. Those were the days.
I will look for you on the lake this saturday.
I have a black & tan Crestliner Fishawk 1850
love the Crestliners.
I was out Thursday night trolling and drifting between the 400 club and Metro and picked up 3 nice perch, 1 smallie, a couple of silver bass and finally in about 10 feet of water, in front of the 400 club..... one 15'' nice eater walleye on an orange and yellow dot harness with a real crawler. Yippee! first walleye of the season. Picked it up just before dark.
Thanks Mad for all the advice
