The walleyes were set up on the typical early season shoreline structure. With a steady wind from the North to Northeast it seemed like every spot we fished from Pine Point, to Oak, to West Goose Flats all had fish. Most the walleyes were caught under 8 feet of water with the typical Jig and Shiner combination. If we found fresh weed-growth, either sand grass or cabbage, there was walleyes there in big numbers.

In most cases when I see people jigging they aren't moving the jig fast enough. If you are back trolling a good goal is .8 mph. Then the fun part is finding out how the walleyes want you to work the jig. Sometimes the dragging method gets them or it's the snap. Experiment and let the walleyes tell you.
If you're into lots of hook sets and full live-wells this is the time to get out. Our Fishing Guide Team is ready if you are interested in a guide trip. Call us at 1-800-562-4665 - www.LeisureOutdoorAdventures.com
