Getting back into the swing of things again.  Got back out on the crank bite for a couple of hours yesterday evening, and it payed off yet again.  I think we missed the better part of the bite, because we didn't quite hit the water early enough.  The last time I tried this crankin technique, we had our 25 or so by 7:00 pm, and last night it was almost 7 when we hit the water.  Who knows, it may have been the crummy weather and cold temps that turned them down a little bit too, but we still caught a few nice ones.  We didn't have any intentions of keeping any, just wanted to feel that tug on the pole again.  Our largest was in the low 20 inch range, and our smallest was around 15 inches.  The depth and the colors were the same as last week, which made it easy to head out for a short time period DustWil.jpgand catch some dandies.  I feel like I am being spoiled more than most years, because the local walleye lakes are really producing well for me this year, and there has really been tremendous size to most of the fish.  The water temps are holding around 64 - 65 degrees, the wind has been blowing from every possible direction and the temps have no idea what they are doing from one minute to the next.  Goofy spring, but a good bite nonetheless.  Fish on Fellas!
