Water temperatures continue to climb, currently we are at 56 degrees and walleyes are beginning to get more aggressive. Jigs tipped with a minnow still are producing good numbers of quality fish. 20’ to 26’ seems to be the best depth to be in. Gold jigs continue to be the best color, but chartreuse and orange have put some good numbers in the boat as well!
Jigging isn’t the only tactic that has produced though! As those water temps keep getting warmer and warmer, drifting spinners will produce great walleyes. That time of year is vastly approaching and I am beginning to hear of a few fish being caught on spinners. If you do decide to experiment and try drifting, gold spinners from 12’ to 20’ is a great place to start! Leeches, crawlers, or minnows can all work on spinners, and especially this early any one of them could be the hot bait that day! The spinner bite will only get better through this next month of the season so don’t be afraid to try it! Good luck and we will see you out there!
