Walleye and sauger fishing report

You sure can tell when the warmer weather comes.  The fishermen really start to hit the river hard when those temps rise above 40. 

Over the last week or so I have had a few guided trips and thankfully the Walleye's and saugers that I have been fishing the last month have bot disappeared.   With that being said I would like to add that getting stuck in one area can break you this time of the year with the water clarity being so good the fish will get spooked 

Jake,John, and Thad gave me a call and told me they booked cabin number 1 at Everts Resort for on Friday night so we could fish all day Saturday     I met up with the boys at 8 am and off we were to test our skills today.   Not an easy bite to start the day for my vessel but after a few location changes today we got into a very nice bunch of Walleye's and saugers.   We caught our fish dragging, pitching jigs and vertical jigging.   Each area had its different presentation that produced our walleyes.   It was a great time gentlemen and I would like to say good Luck with your football career Jake I look forward to watching you on the tube.  

Monday Huck, Joel, and big fish Gary met me at the resort.  We did same as Saturday moving around to spots that were holding Walleye's and saugers.   Jumping around looking for the aggressive fish seems to be the answer right now with the water conditions   Joel started out hot today but by the end of the day I believe Gary had the hottest hand boating several late day Walleye's to finish off the limit.   Fun day gentlemen and I look forward to another day out on the river with you.

Water temperature as of late has been fluctuating due to the temperature changes.  The water level is finally below 4 foot for the first time this winter and the clarity is about 3.8 feet.  

Good luck out there guys and gals !!!!!!
