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.
