Winter is finally here. What does that mean? Huge walleye!! When mother Erie allows us to get out, winter is my favorite time to be on the water. For a few reasons, empty ramps, hardly any boat traffic, predictable walleye and huge ones at that. It takes the lake many cold days and nights to freeze. The past two winters have been pretty much ice free. The two before that were not and the ice fisherman had a field day with the big girls. Don't get me wrong I like to do it but there is just something about being able to move freely about the lake and finding fish.
You see the wind is the biggest factor for me fishing in the winter. I find that it is either blowing so bad that you cant get out or the wind is next to nothing. Next to nothing is in my opinion the best time to be out. Boat control is a breeze. Reading the boards is a breeze. Also hardly any wind is much safer to be out in a boat. This is my first attempt at a blog, so don't beat me up to bad. In the next I will talk about the different crank baits and snap weights we use. Also speed control and reading your fish finder will be talked about. Until then "fish on."
