Fishing Day 1 of 5 with Ed, Dennis, and Jay 4/24/2023by Capt Juls on 04/24/23
We had a later start this morning, due to the NW wind forecast. First we hit Catawba, but I didn't like the white caps rolling in there, so I thought it best to drive over to Mazurik's to launch, so we could at least ride up along the east side of the Bass Islands, for some calmer waters on our ride up to the line.
It wasn't too bad, and we made our way up going slower than I normally would. My crew consisted of two older gentlemen, Ed and Dennis, from Wisconsin, and Dennis's son, Jay, who resides just outside of the twin cities in MN. I have them for the next four days, too. We will be starting earlier tomorrow, so I'll be off the water in a more timely fashion to get a better report done.
There were about 50 boats up on the line, this morning, and there weren't a lot of nets flying, so I think we did okay with the 12 walleye we boxed. My crew was happy enough anyway. And, tomorrow is going to be a better day wind-wise, so hopefully our tally will improve. :)
Just a quick report today...
Bandits 35-85 back behind the Off Shore boards were catching. Reapers only caught one, so they got changed out to Bandits, too.
Red headed Wonder Bread, Electric Zebra, Khaki, RC Crush, Carrot Top, and Humble Bee w/Blk Stripes all caught fish.
The water temp dropped 6 degrees from last week up there...it was 46 degrees today.
Speed was 1.3-1.5 on the Fish Hawk and 1.8-2.0 on the GPS.
I'm afraid that's all I can type right now. My puppy, Alfie, is climbing all over me, and making it impossible to type. He needs some serious attention, so I have to go throw the ball for him.
