Easter Weekend

There was a lot of activity on the river Easter Weekend and reports that I heard was that fishing was slow. Another indicator of the slow fishing is when the boats are moving a lot, trying different spots. With the Wheelers Point access not open there were a number of boats that went from the access in town to the resort area only to find a patch of ice blocking them from going further.

With Sunday being quite nice; about 30 degrees and light wind, I went out to Graceton Beach with thoughts of walking out and fishing late afternoon for a bit. When I arrived at the lake, Mark was just going out with his ATV and offered to give me a ride and suggested that I fish with him. He and his son had fished a couple of times over the week and had done ok late in the day in 18 feet of water. I was surprised at the few people fishing. There were five other small parties widely scattered. The bite for us was quite slow. In over two hours of fishing, we kept three walleyes, a sauger and a perch. We released a half-dozen small walleyes and caught no slot fish.
