THE OLD WAYS – Â Several years ago , back in 2012 , I read an article by Matt Markey of the Toledo Blade about the relationship between the walleye running and the Forsythia bushes that are planted all around the area. I have heard that the Native Americans also used the the bloom of the plant as a gauge as to when to harvest the fish, Over the years I have kept an eye on the bloom and the peak of the run- and they do seem to be in sync.Â Science is great but sometimes the old ways are the best ways. So last year I planted aÂ Forsythia in front of the shop–our very own walleye gauge.Â Â When the bush is in full bloom with bright yellow flowers -that is the peak of the walleye run-its about 95% accurate. As you can see its still early,no buds yet. I’m going to post weekly pictures so we can follow the guage.Â
