We put in at Blue Heron about 8 AM (late start) I let my wife sleep in since it was Mother's Day so we did not leave the house until 6 AM. We didn't pick up our first fish until 12:30 PM at the rock piles north of Blue Heron a bit. Sorry, I am not familiar with Moses Lake so that's about the best I can do. I don't know the official name for the area, but there are a couple of white floats marking the rocks and there were half a dozen of us trolling bottom bouncers through that area. We did not boat that first fish until we sped up from .9 to 1.3 mph. Everyone else was trolling at least 1.3 and some closer to 2. The first of the two walleye we caught was on a green walleye pop with crawler and Pro Cure trophy walleye scent in the chamber. It was just barely a keeper at 12.5-13" so into the live well he went. The second walleye came a short while later on just a plain slow death hook with a whole crawler. This fish was a much better one at 20" and is a new personal best for my wife and the boat as both are new to walleye fishing. That was about it for the day. We managed to boat a bullhead in the next arm of the lake over just before 3 PM which is when we packed it in. We missed a couple more strikes over there that came on an orange walleye pop. Still a bit slow going. None of the other boats we spoke to were killin it. One guy had four and several others had none. Nothing was happening, fish-wise, up at the north end that was so hot a week or two ago. At least not according to the guys we spoke to in our area that had already tried up there.

Great report Huge! Moses is one of the lakes I am keeping an eye on. 'Sleeping in until 6:00 am because it is Mother's Day' - that lady was committed to fishing! Sorry you didn't do better, but at least it sounds like is was a nice day. Hopefully this is the start of many good times on the water together, seeking 'eyes'.

Walleye is definitely our target species most days we are on the water! I like Moses for the cell coverage when I need to be reachable, but the number of ski-dos and other pleasure craft buzzing you while you are trying to troll a piece of structure can sometimes lead one to contemplate flare-gun target practice. Still, it was an awesome day on the water with beautiful weather! I was only half joking about sleeping in to 6. We live in Spokane Valley and it's an almost two hour drive to Moses so I normally try to leave the house by 5 AM to hit the lake by 7. She is a trooper!
