    Default West end walleye

    So tonight we decided to launch out of Metzger's Marsh and go check on the walleye bite we've been hearing about. Everybody knows the walleye move back in front of Crane Creek this time of year so we started there in 22fow. Didn't take long and the boards started going back, had 2 in the box in the first 10 minutes, then a little dry spell. With the way this season spoiled us we don't mess around any more, so we decided to run back a little past our starting point, set up for another pass and immediately boards going back, put 8 more in the box, ran back one more time and done. Ended up catching 15 total in a little over 2 hours, threw back 3 that were legal but smaller, with the average size being around 21-22"s. [email protected]/52back

    peporter3, If your not familiar with the area that I was taking about, come out of the marsh about 3 miles towards the island and turn straight towards Bessie, they'll be somewhere in there.
