Last week my brother Rick Graybill and I tried our luck for walleye on Moses Lake, and we didn’t have much. Although we got quite a number of stolen baits, we only landed one fish and lost another. Hoping that the improved weather would also improve our chances of catching some walleye, we returned to Moses Lake on Tuesday of this week. We launched at the very upper end of the lake and put out our baits when we reached just four feet of water. We immediately began getting strikes. We went through at a dozen baits before we decided try further down the lake, to see if we could find more aggressive fish. We trolled crank baits and got a couple of hits, and we also got our baits stolen from everything from my favorite Dutch Fork Custom Lures spinner, to a variety of spinners in other colors and most on Slow Death Hooks, without any blades or beads ahead of them. That turned out to be the best way to get the walleye. We drove back to where we started the day and found that the fish that were just pecking at our baits earlier were finally eating our worms. We ended the day with nine fish from 15 to 22 ½ inches.
