<font color="#0000FF">So Lipripper, you drag at the Byron speedway...try the Oregon dam or the Rockford dam now. The spawn is just starting and the eye's are beginning to stage in their traditional spawning areas. All we need is a good stretch of "warmth" to get these guys really moving. Water Temps are getting around the 45-55 degree spawning mark and the daylight is also increasing eachday. Try a plain leadhead tipped with a minnow, and keep the the weight around 1/16 to 1/4oz...good luck! Fishski</font>

The plain leadheads work pretty good and they are very inexpensive. I like them when the water is clear after several days of no rain. After rain, like we've had lately I like bright colors or a metalic chrome has worked for me. I haven't been up to Rockton yet this year. Looking for a good report from you Fishki. Wind and walleye do go hand in hand. If you don't have the wind it can be replaced with the cover of night. Definately can't substitute the structure.

<font color="#008000">I will take the low light too...and we have had plenty of wind! The rain should stain things up a bit. I'm getting new tires for the trailer this week, but if that delays things I'm going to wade the dam area. The tires got bad dry rot over the winter and they're ready to pop! Do you want to join me and the boys for trout fest? or will you be out of state by sat? Did the on-line renew for my license...decent! will report when I can get my carcass out there!

Sorry can't join you Saturday Fishski. I'm taking the family up to the Wisconsin Dells Thursday - Saturday. Were going to stay at a Hotel with the indoor waterpark. I am going to bring a pole and check out the dam on the Wisconsin river. I've decided I'll get a Wisconsin license this year. I'll get my stocked trout fix in May when my sportsmans club stocks the front pond with about 500 trout. Its not a big challange. I usually get my limit in the first half hour using rooster tail spinners. Good luck.
