Well, we�re back in the water! The boat went in on March 29th. Our first trips of the year were March 31st and April 1st. I had a group of fellows in from Indiana for two days. Their trip was a perfect example of the Dr. Jeckle, Mr. Hyde personality that Lake Erie can have especially in the early spring. On Thursday the 31st we were greeted by 30 mph plus winds out of the south. We ran down the lake and tried drifting in close to shore by the �K� can markers. It was a frustrating attempt. Even though we were close to shore, it was very choppy and the speed of the drift was way too fast for these early season cold water Walleyes. We did manage to land 7 Walleyes jigging Heddon Sonars. The water clarity was also disappointing. With the very strong and gusty wind, the water was very muddy looking.
