About two years ago at this time, the Captain wrote about a “fun and interesting” time fishing with Downrigger Dale and Allan Tabish.
The fun part was pulling Berkeley flicker shad lures 1.8 miles per hour and catching walleyes in 2-5 feet of water. We caught a lot of males that were in the area for the walleye spawn on the south end of the lake by Pond One. The largest walleye that we caught was only 161/4 inches long and many of the fish were smaller in the 12-13 inch length. The interesting part of the trip was the opportunity to meet up with FWP fishing technicians Adam Strainer, Chris Hurley, and Casey Jenson.
