Wednesday, June 3, 2020

The forecast was for some pretty good winds in the afternoon on Banks Lake, so I left especially early to do some walleye fishing. Putting the boat in a Northrup I went directly to the sand flats at the south end of Steamboat Rock. There were fish there last Friday, and I felt I left too early to try other areas. Well, I could have passed this spot up as it turned out. One bite was all I got. So, I decided to try my favorite area, which is just below Rosebush and the near the Million Dollar Mile. I put the gear out and was immediately rewarded with a small, but keeper walleye. Then I got busy. I had tried a variety of lures but found that either a naked Slow Death Hook rig or a Slow Death Hook with a motor oil Smile blade was what the walleye wanted. I tried to keep my baits in 17 to 22 feet of water. The bite was good and in about two and a half hours later I was headed for the launch, with a limit of walleye. That was the best day of walleye fishing I have had this season.
The walleye bite was terrific when I was on Banks Lake on Tuesday.
