Dad and I decided to run down to New Town on Friday morning hoping to beat the wind and rain. We didn't get on the water until about 9 but had a pretty good outing with 8 of our 10 fish being caught in the first 2 hours. After that we decided to try another spot because it was starting to get a bit crowded. Headed to a new spot and spent the next 2 hours catching our last 2 fish. Holy smokes are the fish in the system healthy.

At the first spot we targeted 16-22 fow pulling prop rigs and crawlers. Dad had 2 fish in the well before I even got a damn line wet. These two rigs were fire with the crawlers for dad and I.

Once we ran out of crawlers we started switching rigs up until we found a couple that worked with minnows.
This one worked the best out of all of the rigs we tried.

All in all it was a good day. 16-22fow, crawlers and minnows both worked with crawlers being much better (my dumb arse shoulda bought more than 1 dozen...). We targeted rock and gravel shorelines. We ended the day with limit of 16"-20" eyes and had a nice mess of beer battered walleye for dinner.Name:  20220527_102434.jpg
