Default Nee Grande

Has anyone else noticed that the fish in Nee Grande this year are thinner. The wipers I've been catching look more like stripers, good length, but not great girth and the walleye don't have that normal heft to them. I talked to a friend of mine that lives out there and he said that they had a huge shad die off this year, more dead shad after ice off than normal.

I know it's been easier to catch fish out there this year, at least for me, so maybe that explains it.

The old standby for me. Blue and white, orange and white and silver and white 3 inch floating rapalas trolled about 3 and a half miles per hour about 75 feet behind the boat. Or for the walleye, and if and when the wipers go deeper, roadrunners, with either a fuzzy grub tipped with half a crawler or white or yellow twister tail, also with half a crawler.

I noticed the same skinny fish last year, at Nee Noshe & Nee Grande. I had caught a 28 inch Wiper last year out of Nee Noshe and It appeared as if it were anarexic. Have not gone down this year though.

Yeah, I think they're really hungry this year. Makes for good catching, but skinnyer fish. I mean, they look alot like how the strippers looked at Powell a few years back, when the rangers wanted you to catch and keep as many as you could because of lack of forage.
