This was one of those times when the stars aligned perfectly. After the spring coho bite dies down on the southern basin, I switch over to targeting walleye. Post-front, they were up in the water column and feeding heavily. I think I went 30 mins at most between catches. All fish caught & released.

New PB 27" and in the 7-8lb range.

FYI it says you have a setting turned off that won't allow your videos to play on other websites


my man Tiny! Thanks sir. I went into hibernation over the winter and last year I just was so busy with life that I didn't do any filming of my fishing. I'm back this year to continue documenting my outings.

They are getting easier to catch at Tampier since the shad population has diminished. The average size this year is right at 20".

Not sure why people keep thinking this was at Tampier because it wasn't. lol There are some giants in the T though...last year I pulled a 24" and my buddy a 26" right after me. both 5+lb fish. I'm not hearing about guys really pulling them out of there tho. I was just on the lake a month ago and there is a ton of bait in it. It's a tough lake to pattern them which is why most guys have a hard time fishing for them.

OK, I only fish there 5 days a week and yes they're in there. I would like to see this "tons of bait" you speak of, I have not seen a shad all year, in fact I'm cleaning walleye with 5" crappie in their guts on several occasions.

Awesome channel man! I think sometime in the near future I’m gonna buy a little more serious setup so I’ve been watching all your reviews. The head on that walleye is huge!

You fish it on a watercraft and don't mark the bait? I'll make sure to take a screenshot on the finder next time I get around to hitting Tampier up and share with you. I saw some balls last time I was there off the points. You found Crappie in their guts on several occasions? That's interesting!! Wouldn't even think that but then again I've never harvested any walleye from there to know. Leave some fish in there so I can catch some too :winker lol

Many thanks! If you ever have any questions about setting stuff up don't hesitate to ask and I'll do my best to help.
