Opening Weekend Report

Opening weekend is now behind us and it was a windy one! Fishing was good at times and really tough as well. The crappies were active in the shallows, especially during the mid day hours, while the walleyes were mostly caught in the mornings and evenings. A jig and a shiner minnow or leech was the best way to put a few in the boat. The next few weeks things should get better as the water warms.
