The Walleye seem to be starting back again. It seems that everytime we have a cold front come through they stop biting for a couple days. The weather has been nice for a while now and they started biting. The boaters seem to be going both shallow and deep and finding them so there is no special place to find them. I found that Chartreuse and watermelon are some of the favorite colors for catching them though.
The perch fishing has not been very good. I have had quite a few people go out looking for them but I haven't heard of too many people limiting. Most people I have talked to have only caught half a limit if that.
