The erratic and generally windy weather of the past week has kept fishing pressure at a moderate level. Water temperatures have crept up into the upper 50's and to the low 60's on some smaller lakes, which has brought more and more fish into the shallows and spurred on quite a bit of feeding activity. Walleye are usually the most sought after fish across the Northwoods in May and reports have indicated some real variable success. There hasn't been any real consistent pattern yet to the early season bite and walleye anglers have been having some good success on both crankbaits and live-bait rigs. For the live-bait fishermen, both leeches and minnows have been having good success and the break lines in 8 to 15 feet of water have been producing the best. The crankbait anglers have been catching fish along gravel and wind-swept shorelines.
