Snuck out this afternoon for a couple of hours and thought I was gonna get the old skunk but ended up with a single walleye that made the launch worth while. Almost the same conditions as yesterday but some clouds and drizzle just as I was pulling out. Got this one dragging the bottom about 8-10 feet with a plain hook/minnow and a splitshot.

Looks like you had a good weekend JD. Did you guide for the boys or were they friends?

They were guided for a second time. I had them out with their father about three weeks ago and did very poorly that day so as my website indicates, they got a free day. This time we were able to pick up some decent fish but no walleye. I felt better about this trip, they caught on and were fishing very well. :)

Although I always want to get fish more my clients, it seems especially important when kids are aboard. They have high hopes and catching fish is the difference between a great day and boredom for them.

Mission accomplished. :yes

Nice walleye JD., I picked off a few yesterday by one of the bridges, along with a few perch and a couple of white bass. The wallies hit a mimic minnow and really slammed it, the perch and whites were on shiners on a split shot rig. :D
