2010 is the Year of the Walleye!

Wild walleye action continues.
Anglers report catching unprecedented numbers of walleyes and also report the fish are coming in all sizes, from eight inches to 30 inches.
That's great news because it means great fishing for many years to come.
The fish are very shallow, from 6-12 feet deep, and are being caught primarily with worms and leeches.
Northern pike are more difficult to catch. The dead bait system where anglers use frozen ciscoes and bobbers is not productive, probably because the water is too warm for this slow presentation.
Best action comes from casting spoons and spinners and from trolling crank baits.
Some of the difficulty in catching pike no doubt comes from the tremendous crop of young walleyes out there -- just the right size for pike to eat.
