It must be super cold when you get out there a mile or so. I used to fish there but it takes cold to a new level. I opt for the more sheltered areas now to get out of the wind a little more

Slow for everyone I talked to last couple days. Hardly any perch, and about 1 out of 4 walleyes are keepers. This is only my 8th year living up here, but I am seeing a huge increase in walleyes caught in the bay. And I've only seen a handful of undersize eyes in years past. Is anyone else seeing the same thing?

I've noticed the same thing with the walleye, my groups caught over 3 dozen so far this season, only about 10 keepers but their all healthy fish. This high water helped them a ton I think, as well as the double mayfly hatch. Anything out deep yet? Saw some guys out on the trough this morning, thinking about making the run for it next weekend.

I haven't tried out deep, but with the amount of fish we're catching shallow I might wait a while.

My son did better in the morning and the best bite was from 0730-0930. But his buddy fishing 15 yards away caught 3 keeper and that pike in the evening. He did say that he had alot of thru backs. Sauturday a father/son team had a bucket of eys somwhere by Pine. i myself have been working nights all weekend but that ends in the morning so I might have to give it a shot.

Depends on your definition of walking distance. I don't have a quad or sled till the boats paid off, so I was walking 2.5-3 miles every weekend to fish. Was worth every footstep. I've probably walked 20+ miles out there this season.

This year more than others it's walkable. The water is up a ways. There were 3 guys who walked out Sunday, I talked to them at the launch. I found there gloves and Stormy Kromer on the ground. PM me for info

the best action i have ever gotten out there was just walking blindly, headed north north west til i got tired and popped a few holes. munuscong is very user friendly in my opinion

after a few times out you'll get a feel for what to look for and where to stay away from
