This spring has been so unusual weather wise. The spring freshet which normally occurs, didn’t due to lack of snow. This had kept the water level down. On April 9th, as we looked out the big window, we watched the ice go out. A strong south west wind pushed the candled ice up against the dock with accompanying beautiful sound effects. So the ice left before the walleye season had actually closed (April 15).
Now the water has come up a bit with a few rain days. We are having some glorious warm weather. The fishing is great. Some of the big fish are in 20 feet of water already with the surface temperature of the lake being 57 F. The same time last year the surface water temp was 37 F.
Can’t wait to see you. Drive up safe.
