Walleye opener is here!

It's that time of year again - walleye season.

Unlike last year, ice has left the state's lakes quite a bit earlier and that should warm the water more than last year.

To anglers, that should mean a better bite and definitely make it more comfortable to fish. Walleyes and northerns should be in a good mood to bite. Spawning in most of the state should be done. This should put walleyes in shallow water where they are quite catchable.

Here in the south half of the state I expect walleyes to be quite aggressive.
