It is hard to believe that it's already closing in on March, and we are patiently awaiting spring and summer.

Majority of the fish are being caught in the low light conditions of morning and evening, with the occasional walleye coming in the middle of the day. With a little under a month left to chase walleyes before the season closes until May, now is a great time to get out and try a new spot or possibly a new lake.

Although walleye season closes at the end of the month, we are looking ahead to the best couple months...
