We didn’t catch a limit of walleyes, but six walleyes hanging on the fish board were over 28 inches. Walleyes over 28 inches in Ohio will get you a Fish Ohio award. These walleyes were caught jig fishing purple hair jigs tipped with a piece of crawler in April.


Ray, Pam, and Bill had a fun day catching their limit of 30 walleyes with Capt. John and first mate Jay. We caught these walleyes in 21 feet of water-trolling spoons.

John is holding a walleye over 28 inches. We had six walleyes over 28 inches on this walleye trip. Great weather produced fantastic walleye fishing for the guys.


Sean’s team of guys caught their walleye limit.

They cast weapons tipped with a night crawler. It was a fast bite, constantly reeling in walleyes and netting. It was a busy day for me moving around the boat, netting walleyes, and putting them on ice in the fish cooler—a fun day for everyone.

Customers caught 30 walleyes on Friday the 13th. Who thought Friday the 13th walleye fishing would be so great? On the 14th, they caught 28 walleyes. The mayflies hatched and slowed down the catch rates, plus on the 13th, we fished in 2 to 4-feet waves. Then, on Saturday, the lake went flat with no wind.

On Father’s Day, we caught 42 walleyes that weighed 110 pounds. We had a steady SE wind all day, which made a big difference. Look for stained water, and you will find some active-feeding walleye.
