    I kinda figured. Do you know if there any bait shops in the area open early? Should I bring a 15 foot doc boat or a 19 foot tin walleye boat?

    Ducks Point is right across from the landing, it's changed hands a lot, don't know what time they open or what they have for bait anymore.

    If the wind is up, I've seen whitecaps out there. Deep launch. Straight out from the launch, there's a sunken island and on the east side crappies can be had with jigs.

    I grew up there and the common phrase is "No luck Duck". It's usually feast or famine out there and the fish can be really good. The problem is finding them and if they're hungry that day.

    The bait store opens at 7 am I believe. I have got some nice gills there and a couple decent walleyes. You can go there one day and slay em, next day, same spot- nothing.

    the south/midwest side has radical depth changes.. far west side is flatter and shallow..if you are planning on a weekend the lot fills up fast(only decent lake for most activities around).. the 19 footer..especially with a deep bow might be overkill...lots of sub legal largies..and lots of panfish..with numerous approaching master angler size..walleyes are trickier

    Plenty of decent lakes around but as noticeable as this behemoth
