Wolf River Walleyes Heading Home

Well the past few weeks have been packed with house projects, caring for a new puppy, and keeping the wife happy, which means little time to fish!  I finally made it out on Saturday on the Wolf River with my brother and father for a few hours of fishing.

We fished near Gills Landing and found the bite to be scattered for the most part.  We caught a total of 7 Walleyes, 6 of which were spawned out females from 17 1/2" to 23 1/2", and one female that went 19" and was still rock hard with eggs! 

The morning bite was best for us with Shiners, and then the afternoon bite got much better for us once we switched to crawlers.  We found all of our fish in 15-20 feet of water in slower current. 

I heard several reports of lots of fish being caught in the Shiocton area this weekend, including spawned out males.  This means the best fishing will happen over the next week and a half for down run fish that are in search of an easy meal.

I hope to get out a time or two this week to get in on the action that is sure to take place this week!  Warmer temperatures should also get the fish more active and convert the bite to a crawler bite which I prefer anyways!
