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.
The truly dedicated are about all that’s left and that’s just fine with them. They’re perfectly content having a bunch of biting panfish all to themselves and aren’t concerned that somebody else might be missing out.
