Walleye fishing was so good at Banks Lake on Tuesday that I talked my friend James Lebow to go again on Thursday. I wanted to fish crankbaits in the Million Dollar Mile section of the lake, and we launched the boat right there. We ran out to about 20 feet of water and were into fish right away. We ended up running the largest Flicker Shads and Bandits I had. We were dealing with a pretty good breeze but were able to troll from just below Rosebush all the way down the point, and back. There weren’t many other boats out there and we watched the people in one boat we passed getting fish, too. We had a few small fish, but most of them were 15 to 20 inchers. We did release one that was 25 inches long. We started with perch patterns and eventually were using anything that would dive as deep as 17 feet. When we wandered into 30 feet of water we marked a ton of fish. It would be worth pulling bottom bouncers at this depth right now. I think Banks is fishing the best it has in about three years. It’s a lot of fun.
