When the walleye action slowed down late in the summer many anglers thought the fish lost their teeth. It made sense, some of the walleyes that were caught had red looking gums and there had to be a reason for the lack of success.
With such a late ice-out you can expect spring walleye patterns to move along pretty quickly. Water temps should heat up faster than normal and push everything along until we catch up with what might be considered normal.
What a crazy spring. We’ve had late ice before but not to this extent, not that I can remember. Sooner or later the ice will give it up though and we’ll get on the water and walleye fishing could actually be pretty darn good.
