As the water temps rises the fishing gets better. Hit the lake yesterday with a friend and had a great day. First stop we hit was the only spot as we never moved. Between us we landed 68 eyes with 6 keepers, 7 SMB, 3 LMB and 9 spots. Weather was great and so was the fishing. Biggest eye was 19.25, biggest SMB was 15.25 and the big spot was 17 inches.
Diggins and his wife are coming over for a 3 day fun filled weekend on the lake so I had to get out and do a pre-scout. Hope to get a few shots of him catching something other than suckers.
Looks like a great day! I'm very new to targeting walleye. If you don't mind me asking, what were you using to catch the walleye? I fish from shore or a kayak, so it would be nice to have something good to throw at them from time to time. I've actually only caught one walleye so far.

wow beautiful fish.. i could tell the spotted bass looked a bit different than a largemouth but i would have thought it was a largemouth if i caught one of those.. how can you tell the difference? it seems the eyes look different/ darker? the line through middle of body not as prominent and looks muddled and spotty up near the top of his back? the face/head looks a bit different too the LMB would have a bigger mouth and spotted looks more like a smallmouth's head? just wondering how to best identify that its a spotted bass
