The last couple of days the winds went down and the weather stabilized. It made it easier getting around the lake and that is what you need to do. With the abundance of food including significant May Flies, getting walleyes can be challenging. Getting a few at one spot and moving to the next has been my go to plan of action. Each day is a little different and I have found walleyes on the rocks in the main lake, on several main lake flats and in walker bay on sand point flat. I have also caught some nice 17-19 inch fish on wind blown points as well as in the cabbage in the northern bays. The ones I caught in the cabbage came in the middle of the afternoon while looking for weed beds to fish in the evening on a Muskie trip. My first Muskie trip was a 4 hour evening trip last night. We caught a 45 inch Muskie in the cabbage beds. That was the only fish we saw but a great start to what I consider Muskie season as the water temps are finally up to 72 degrees.
The last two weeks have seen some seasonal changes. Walleyes I filleted had both crayfish and leeches in addition to minnows in them. I shifted from jig and minnow to rigging with leeches and crawlers to match their food preference. The rock reefs have produced well. Last week saw a mixed bag. Early in the week we had some good weather and good fishing. Then we had a Mayfly hatch that made fishing tougher as the Walleyes fed on the flies. We were still able to get a limit of fish but it took longer and we had to move around more.
