Is it time to use crawlers yet?

It’s been a long time coming this spring, but hopefully the warmer weather is finally on its way. I can’t remember a time, living here in Port Clinton over the last 13 years, where I have had to wear my long underwear and the full body Mustang suit this long into the month of May. It’s really quite exhausting! Just like everyone else, I’m longing for the days where I can wear shorts and flip flops in the boat again.

Walleye fishing has been good, but not great, this last week. The strong winds and cold temperatures we have endured have scattered the fish around their normal feeding areas, and locating and catching them has been a bit of a challenge, though not impossible.  

The water temperatures took a little step backwards, from the low 50’s back to the high 40’s, but are on the rise again now.

Take advantage of days you can’t fish due to lousy weather

Last season I wrote an article explaining how to tie up your own crawler harnesses. With the weather we’ve had this past week, now is a good time to start building some of your own harnesses to use for this season. There’s nothing more satisfying than catching fish on a lure that you’ve created yourself.

After a great start to the season weather-wise, this past week has confronted us with cold front conditions, rain, and big winds. The walleye bite slowed down in areas that were very productive for the first few weeks after ice out, and the fish are now moving around more, so locating them after we can get back on the water is the first order of business.
