The days have warmed up and that first push of walleye is starting to get active. I would officially say that the run is on,off to a slow start but they are definitely in there with more arriving daily. Â The Lake Erie average temperature is still at 36 degrees or lower so that warm Maumee river water flowing into it has triggered that first batch of walleyes spawning instinct and they have begun the journey up river. We saw a Big jack come in to win the weekly contest yesterday at 5.03 lbs. to win a $25 gift certificate. Â This week starts a new contest running Â Monday morning thru Sunday 5 pm.
We saw fish taken at Ford st, Orleans park, Ft. Meigs , Bluegrass and Jerome road rapids. Â Those areas will be good spots again today. We didnt see any limits Â but a good number of ones and twos.
Colors:Â Orange head/ berkly fitretiger tail Â Â -green head /green tail Â – black head /yellow tail Â yellow head /yellow red firetail.
Keep in mind that we also have all colors available in the slightly larger 4 in tails. More visible and gives a better vibration Â in this murky water
