I was going to do South Haven because a Sunday report showed 2  man limit in 4  hours, but I was pretty sure the heavy Monday NNW wind would blow a lot of the warm water (that came up from weekend SW 70 degree winds) south. I guessed correctly; also Fishin Hole said they were in.

Better  get them in next few weeks or so before they move out to deeper water. When they school up real tight in shallows they are easier pickings like walleye.

Most fish were caught between the brown house on the hill to the blue house just before the concrete wall.

Don't be afraid to run a little hot like I said, 2.4-3sog.

We found out last year in Erie west basin  that walleye wanted a hot speed also. We ran same 2.4 to 2.9;  4 trips 66 ‘eyes’. Unheard of; walleye speed is always like 1.8 to 2.3 or so. Work speed.

If you get a hit on starborad side while turning left (where SB lures will speed up) then you were trolling too slow. Likewise if port side goes  off on that same turn you are trollong too fast, etc.

The slogan for driving, “speed kills” 

works  for fishing too.
