As I write this fishing report we are receiving record breaking amounts of snow along with dangerous wind gusts which is just so disappointing winter just will not let go this year. As far as the walleye fishing has been we have been catching good numbers of quality fish each day we can get on the water. One big challenge that we have had each day on the bay has been finding safe water to fish that does not have moving ice sheets around.Along with fishing on the Bay we have also been catching good walleyes in the rivers along the west shore and to the south. We have been finding success using Rapala ripping raps fished off bottom and also catching good fish on soft plastics such as B-fishin Moxies, Pulse Rs, and paddle tails.One key for us each day has been to experience with color and size throughout the day to maximize your catch that has been very important for us due to the fish not being very active with the cold water temperatures.
Well it is certainly proving to be a late arrival for spring weather here in Wisconsin with below normal temperatures along with a late season snow storm bringing upwards of 10 inches of snow. We have been finding success catching walleyes daily on the waters that we can fish that have been ice free. The Bay as of today is for the most part very ice covered and depending on the day and wind direction there has been areas that have fishable water if there is boat access in the area. We have been finding our success jigging for the walleyes using soft plastics along with lipless crankbaits. Next weeks weather looks like we will be moving into a warmer weather pattern so that should begin to soften up and begin to get rid of some ice on the bay..
