|Smile for your close up Mr. Walleye|
With the massive rainfall all the rapids throughout the park are gushing and drawing plenty of fish to the super oxygenated water. While guiding last Thursday my guests and I chose to take full advantage of the roaring north falls at Central. In a short period of time they managed to boat over 100 walleye easily and we left them biting. Oddly enough, we did not see a single pike in the flowage.
The walleye bite is still good. As mentioned before, lots of fish are moving to the rapids although plenty are hanging in deep water. Open water reefs in 20 ft are optimal places to start hunting. 1/4 oz jigs with orange or pumpkinseed tails have been most effective. Surprisingly, trolling has been lackluster lately, the bite seems to be favoring the slower presentation of a jig.

Dad and I will be tackling some fall projects shortly. In short, Cocos and West will be seeing some touch ups. New windows and stairs are coming to Cocos; while West is getting a new front door and bedroom interiors. If time and weather permits we will tackle others.
Good luck on the water everyone! Send us your 2015 Big Hook pics.
