2014 fishing season off to a great start

First off, I would like to thank The Beacon for inviting me back to write the weekly fishing report for them again this season. It is an opportunity that I greatly appreciate, and I hope it helps everyone who reads it catch more fish this season.

The polar vortex weather system we experienced over this past winter brought in a thick ice cover on the lake and the ice anglers enjoyed a spectacular ice fishing season for the first time in several years. Pictures of huge walleye were displayed on many websites over the winter, and made those of use who do not ice fish very envious of their catches.

Thankfully, the ice is gone now and the walleye fishing season on the Western Basin has finally begun. The ice went out on this end of the lake the first week of April this year, which was a couple months behind what we had experienced the past few years.
