photo-177This week has seen an uptake of larger walleyes landed.  Fish in the mid-twenties to over 30 inches have been active.  Successful presentations have included the basic jig and minnow under a bobber to aggressive jigging tactics.  The bite has been soft, though, and fast action rods with soft tips have worked well.  Watch the tip load, then set the hook.  Walleyes have been most dominant, with a few less sauger lately.  The perch have been coming in small numbers, but have run in the 12-13 inch range.  20-28 feet has been best.  Snowmobile trails are in the best condition they have been in all winter.
