                The main walleye spawn is over and we are now in the change over period. Changing over from bottom fishing with jigs to spinner fishing suspended walleye. Trollers will be changing over from stick baits to spoons. Todays catch was half bottom bouncers and half jigs. We had lots of leaned over rods and no hook up. These are cold sluggish walleye hitting but not aggressive enough to get hooked up good. Walleye are cold blooded so until the water warms a few more degrees sluggish fish will be the normal. How ever with all the different age classes of walleye we are catching from 15, 17, 19, 24,27 inch and up we are anticipating a very good season spinner fishing on the western basin. All Lake Erie needs is a week or so of descent warm weather with southerly winds. With that being said the plus of the colder weather in April is our bite in the western basin will hold longer most likely into if not through August.
