So the last two or three days have been very slow, between the lack of rain and the high temperatures it  really had the fishing slow-Even though there are a lot of fish in the water just about everybody that went out only came back with one or two.

BUT! Yesterday that changed, the day bite was the same -slow lots of singles and doubles but as soon as that weather system rolled in around 5:00 p.m. guys that hadn’t caught a single fish all day were getting their limits in an hour or less.  That barometric pressure changed right before the rain came in and Bam! Fish On! It was amazing.

Shimmer shad with a black head looks just like a minnow in the water.  White head / green tail, and yellow Head/  white tail are also some good combinations to try today. 

Keep an eye out ,we finally got some rain so the river levels will start to rise. I’m pretty sure we’re going to see some good action today on through midweek has the water rises and brings in a nice fresh batch of walleye from the river.


As the weather warms and we get closer to May don’t forget we are also a kayak outfitter. Fishing from a kayak is a game changer. We also do day rentals for recreational kayaking, I’m looking probably somewhere in mid-May to start that for the season.


Look at this 11 lb beauty brought in bright and early Saturday!



Have fun ,be safe and good luck fishing.
