Moses Lake walleye action slows down with warmer weather

The warm weather we have had recently has put a damper on the walleye bite on Moses Lake, at least for me.

Gary Feil and hit Moses on Wednesday, and while I had fantastic fishing earlier this spring on Moses, we had a tough time finding fish. The bite was very different, as the fish were not nearly as aggressive, so I know we missed a bunch of hits.

We were busy, not only replacing torn up or missing worms on our Macks Lure Slow Death rigs, we had a lot of perch bites. We ended up getting just five walleye and a dozen nice perch in the cooler.

I was feeling pretty bad about my performance for the day until I ran into one of the anglers that was pre-fishing for the big derby this weekend. I have fished with him before and he’s a pro at walleye fishing. He had caught just one fish that day. Whew. I felt better.

I will be interested in hearing how the tourney turns out. I am sure they will do well, but it isn’t what it was earlier this spring. The water temperature on Moses hit over 72 degrees on Wednesday.

Next trip I will focus on bass.
