  1. Walleyes are still around the dam, but the bite has slowed a bit. We were able to bring in a dozen or so, all on a lindy rig and minnow.

      ok, i know this is off topic, but what kind of dog is that? we adopted a mix breed from a shelter, and while we have ideas of what make/model he is, we're not ...more sure, but he has the same light/dark brown face paint like yours does.

  5. Fished below prairie du sac dam over June 23rd 2017 weekend. Read a few reviews and wanted to try this stretch of the river. Water was very high and current was ...more strong. Spent 3 days anchoring and jigging around the dam. Caught approx. 50 walleye/sauger, 8 sturgeon, 1 pike, a few catfish and accidentally snagged a paddlefish with a rapala. Average size on walleye/sauger was 15 with a few nice 18s. Mostly everything caught on lindy rig with a minnow or half a crawler. I was impressed!
