High water , wind and cold did not deter anglers form heading out yesterday and targeting those walleye. Despite winters never ending grip on northwest Ohio the walleye are running . While the bite has been steady for the last week, we still need some warmer days to get things really moving.

Today the water is still high so a very productive method is to “short cast”  that means more or less working the jig in closer to the shoreline.  There is no need to launch your jig halfway across the river today.During this high water the fish will lay up close to shore, or in any slight eddy or break in the current to get out of that strong rushing water .

Weight- 1 oz to 1.5 oz.

Colors- Black head / glow tail, Green head /plain yellow tail,  Pink head/ rocket red tail, Orange head / Black tail


Two colors that seem to work consistently are Rocket red(pearl sheen) and Neon pink (translucent) tough to tell apart sometimes but both are good to have in your arsenal.

Have fun be safe and good luck fishing
