Another excellent day of walleye fishing on the Spokane Arm. With the forecasted wintery weather hitting us this weekend we decided to take a day off work. JD and I launched out of Porcupine Bay with Glenn in his Lund and headed up the Arm. We started off the cold morning at the same place where we had good luck last Sunday. Drifting the main river channel produced quite a few fish; a lot of dinks were in the mix. By mid day the bite slowed down so we started moving around looking for active fish. We went up to buoy 5 and back down to Porky. Our last stop was a flat in Porky (red barn) that was holding a bunch of nice 17-19 inch males; some were pretty well developed in preparation for spawning.

We caught just over 70 eyes for the day and cleaned 41. Anything green or perch looking worked pretty well. Water temp was 42.7 and visibility is still 5-6 feet.

Not sure how much is knowing where they are holding or how much is presentation but it's pretty evident you have it figured out. I knew I would be reading this report when I went by you yesterday and my report is pretty much the same as it has been, had a hard time getting a bite. Wound up finding some down near Porcupine and finished with a dozen small eaters, nothing special.
Thanks for the report, glad you did well.

Hey, WalleyeMark, this is the Gator, was that you in the late afternoon just off bluecreek point that I was trolling around, you were with two other guys in a lund casting jigs, I was in the blue and white Bayliner? Tried jigging from Bouey 5 to Bouey 3 not a bite, decided to put on some bottom walkers and it was lights out after that, caught most of my fish between 17 and 22ft, released two females over 24 inches , ended up with 12 ,17-19 fish. Tight Lines and Keep Reelin!!

Gator that was us. That spot definitely produced at the end of the day for us as well. I am either in that boat, my Tracker or my other buddies Crestliner; we all have boats so we just rotate who does the driving.

Part-Time, which boat we you in? PM me and I will give you a few more details. My buddies get upset if I give away too many clues online. This time of year too many people fish way too deep; those bigger fish are looking for warmer water; even a degree or two can make a difference. Interestingly the eyes didn't start biting for us until after the sun was on the water; just the opposite of what you would expect.

Hey Part-time that was me in the parking lot that talked briefly with you about your fishing day on Lake Roosevelt around 6:30, fished by myself that day, fishing buddy was having truck troubles and couldn't make it, I was very anxious to get out and try some walleye fishing, finally got my stern drive fixed in my boat and a brand new minnkota 50lb thrust Powerdrive bow mount to try out, "Boy Howdy" was that sweet, "Walleyes" beware, LOL, nice to see you Part-Time and WalleyeMark, next time I will have to introduce myself and talk "Walleye" fishing!! This weather "sucks" bigtime, I thought we were done with winter?? You know what they say about March, it either comes in like a Lion and goes out like a Lamb or comes in like a Lamb and goes out like a Lion?? Until next time "Tight Lines and Keep Reelin!!????????

Mark does your buddy Glen have a 350hp Merc on the back of his Lund? There was one at Seven Bays inside the log boom when we launched last week. Whoever it was that boat must really fly...
