Default Snake Eyes

As much as I hate to report a skunk I figured Iíd let you all know Iíve been practicing a lot of casting in the dark.

Iíve been practicing casting from shore at Cherry Creek, Aurora, Soda, Chatty, and Bear Creek. Iím hoping one day here I will get lucky and put a productive pattern to these walleye to validate all of this practice.

Is everyone else practicing or is there some catching going on with these eyes from shore (pre-spawn, spawn, ect)? Are they moving in yet??

Thanks to those of you who have given me advice, hopefully Iíll have a report with pics for you soon.

You definitely do not need a boat for the month of March. Fish your jerkbaits agonizingly slow this time of year and try to hit lot of nights rather than long nights but less frequently. When you least expect it you will catch the biggest walleye of your life. Just gotta keep at it.

I haven't had any good numbers nights. Just 1-2 quality fish after casting persistently. I boated chatty the other night. The wind was brutal but I will tell you the fish are on the dam. Fishing the dam closes march 15th so get out there while it lasts.

Fishing a jerk? Thats my guess but you don't say.

I've been fishing smaller plastics like twister tails and paddle tails along with rouges and rapalas and snapping spoons thru the different water columns. I use 6lb line

next I'm going to try leeches below a slip bobber and when that does not work I know some guys like dynamite

Too early for leeches. Eyes are chasing shad and other small fish. Likelihood of finding leeches right now is zero. Minnesota provides most leeches and they usually don't have them until may. Keep throwing those baits persistence will pay off.
