Still slow but we were able to jig up eight eye's 15-18 inches. We also lost a nice catfish that we coldn't get up to the surface:mad: Water temp was 42-46 degree's today. The nets go out on the dam 3-12.

Itching to get back out there myself. Last time was a couple of weeks ago...sounds like the water temp's on the rise(37-38 degrees when I was there in the belly boat). I just got a personal pontoon and will be able to move around better than the float tube allowed to hunt the eyes. Unfortunately, I was stupid enough to answer my phone on a Friday and will be working tomorrow. Maybe Sunday I can get out there. I've still never caught a walleye on anything but a fly rod and just hope to keep getting better at it.

Just got home from there. Barely saw a fish on the finder let alone any bites. Beautiful day though. Always amazed at how hundreds of thousands of fish do such a great job hiding Jan-Mar.

a bit to soon Neal, but the quest go's on. I probably wont be out there this year, thinking of selling my boat. it's getting to much hassle and cost to much now for how little I will use it. I will still buy a license but only go as a ride along or hit a few spots from shore. might take a trip to NM in April then sell it. hate to do it after spending $5'000.00 up grading it last year then only using it 4 days all year. I will take the pressure off the eyes for you guys. so Neal go catch that big one for me, or better still let Kelly catch it

They are laying in the mud in 25-35 of water belly to the bottom. I really helps if you have down scan. Sometimes it just looks like a bump on a other wise muddy bottom. When you catch one they are very pale colored. The boat dock closes at 6 pm so I haven't fished for bigger females yet there.
