With fishing like this, a guy could use a few more days of vacation to get out and take advantage of the great fishing and weather that is currently in place!
After spending the day on Saturday planting grass and checking as many things off the honey-do list as possible, I was given the green light to fish all day on Sunday. This sounded good in theory, but unfortunately for us the skies had other ideas!
Despite watching the radar only to see a large batch of rain heading in our direction, my dad and I chose to hook the boat up, grab the rain gear, and hit the water. We had the boat in at 7:15, and by 7:45 the rain began. For the next 2.5 hours we caught 16 Walleyes in the pouring rain. There were times that we couldn't even hear the kicker motor due to the sound of the heavy downpours!
Since we had so much fun on Sunday in the rain, we planned another outing for Wednesday afternoon. I also invited a friend that doesn't get out much to hopefully cash in on the good action. The fishing actually started off slow for us, as the high fishing pressure in our area had apparently slowed the bite. After 3 passes and only 3 Walleyes in the boat, we decided to head west and try some new water with less fishing pressure.
This was clearly the right move, as a board dropped back before we even could get all 6 lines in the water! The fish turned out to be a chunky 17" Walleye. We continued our pass catching 2 more Walleyes in a short stretch.
