I just want to catch one. If it has to be miserable and cold, so be it. If it's like that, all the more worth it

Nice Eye. Do you catch many during the daytime hours, as it more common out where Im from in CT to catch them in the evening

Walleye can be caught in the middle of the day, especially so on overcast days.  Yes, they are caught on bright days as well, however, doing so is not as common.  The majority of the walleye are caught the first two hours of daylight and the last two hours in the evening.  Atleast, that has been my experience.

I hope that is the trend here, as well!  Well, I guess my first hope would be to get enough ice to even go after them.  I'm usually four to five miles out onto Saginaw Bay, by now.  But this year you can't get on the ice unless you wear waders and walk througha couple hundred yards of water, up to waste deep, then climb onto the five to six inches of ice.  The only machines going out right now are air boats.  Been a terrible year so far for fishing the bay.  We do have some inland lakes that are frozen and fishable, but they are close to a hundred miles north of me.  Yeah, I can't wait to get out on the bay for some very nice walleye fishing.

Yeah, that sure would be nice to sleep in and not get to the lake until 9 or 10!  Now I'm getting up at 4am to get ready, drive the lake, unload everything, head out onto the ice and set up before the sun starts coming up.  I like the idea of getting up at 6 instead of 4, lol.

So would I. Retired 5 years ago and can't sleep in past 4:00 AM...and I worked 2nd shift. Easily slept in until 7:00 while working. Dunno what happened. Oh well. In bed by 9:00...plus or minus. Feel rested. Guess it's ok. And I'm never late for anything. Lol.
