Fished potholes on Sunday with little luck. Caught one walleye in about 20ft trolling slow death hooks. Caught the one walleye over by the sand dunes. The lake was also very foggy and hard to see. Been hearing several reports of good fishing but today just wasnt the day. Didn't see any other fish caught besides our one walleye.

Fished potholes reservoir Saturday afternoon. Got on the water around noon. Hit the humps out by the dunes and it was on. Got my personal best walleye unfortunately the pic doesn't do justice. It was 30" and hit 14 lbs. Also got four other nice keepers using blades baits in silver. Caught five largemouth and several decent perch. Water temp was 41 degrees and was a beautiful day.

Arrived at the state park & paid my launch fee only to discover after to driving to the put in, that they had pulled the dock out. Would have driven down the road a bit & launched at mardons had I known that. We fished from 10 A.M. till 1 P.M. & got 2 nice 18'' walleyes & 3 perch. But, the weather was horrible!! Rain & then harder rain. Cold wind & then colder wind!
I figure after 3 or 4 days I should finally warm up. The water temp. according to my guage was 41'. Not the great fishing that we had a couple of weeks ago.

The weather forecast this weekend called for sun and mild winds, so I made the mad dash to the lake this morning and found fantastic fishing and big fish! Vertical jigging over 20-30 foot humps with jigging spoons in gold were the ticket for me. I talked to other fisherman, who said they had a great day too. Walleye and perch for dinner!

Fished for the better part of Sat and Sun. Only one keeper with one pig lost at the boat. Lots of jumbo perch though. No wind and good company. Fished 10-20 ft on the face of the dunes. Didn't see much action around us.caught about 8 11" walleye, so it wasn't boring.

We went out for our first ever trip to Potholes. It was awful! Nobody should ever go there again.....
Ok, so it was amazing. We ended up keeping almost 34 pounds of walleye. Before fileting. We caught a ton of dinks, so many perch we lost count, one catfish and one crappie. We kept two 4lb 10oz, one 3lb 10 oz, two 2lb 10 oz, two 2lb 6oz, one 2lb 1oz, and several over a pound and a half.

We tossed blade baits at first. Pretty productive. Then switched to bottom bouncers for most of the day. The started off liking silver with slow death hooks, then green, then copper, then blue, then silver, then green. Just plain nailed them. Usually at about .9 to 1.2 mph.

Wind was slow but steady. Water around 55.5. Mostly cloudy with some afternoon sunshine. We went everywhere. Location didn't matter. We got them all over. Best action was either slow jigging with bottom bouncers or when I would ignore them completely and only notice when they got hit.

This lake is stellar. People all around were catching. Everyone was courteous. The guy running the Mardon store was great. We did have the give a yell to a father and young son that had a bite and hadn't noticed as they trolled past.

This trip had Dave, Jeff and Steven all smiling all day. What a great fishery.
