On Thursday I chose to find out what was going on at Potholes Reservoir. The weather forecast looked good and I had a feeling that this would be a better walleye season on the big reservoir. The first thing I learned was that I could have slept in. I tried a couple of spots in Lind Coulee, and didn’t mark any fish or get a bite. I fished off Perch Point for a while with the same result. The baits went in again at top corner, before you make the turn into Crab Creek. Zip. There is a nice slot just below the launch that is just a short way up Crab Creek and I still couldn’t find any fish. Running all the way up to the inlet from Moses Lake, a fish finally took my worm and I broke a fish off. Finally, when I left Crab Creek there were several boats in a bunch, so the gear went back in just above them. It was one o’ clock and the cooler was still empty, but things can change with walleye, and they did. I got four 21-inch walleye in a row. Two on a motor oil Smile Blade on a Slow Death Hook and two on an emerald green Smile Blade on a Slow Death Hook. Turned out to be a good day!
I got these four 21-inch walleye, one after the other, after 1 o’clock in the afternoon.
