Fished yesterday morning (Sunday) and you aren’t kidding about the shad! They are so thick in all the marinas and Gordon park. Did manage a few smallies though.

last night i got 1 eye 24",50 people fishing 5 fish come out off water waves 1' les,5 boats troling ,HJ#14 silver/blue/chartreuse bely.
i mis 3 ,light taps and i set the hook no fish,next time i had light tap i wait 1 second and set hook,fish was on.i did the same think next time no fish.
when you catch fish,then you are stuck on the same lure,i have to overide that rule.
plan,change lure every 20 minutes,only if you catch 2 fish you can extend the same lure 20 minutes.
moust important is time.
they come like clock 930pm,1030pm,1130pm.
people are f$king pigs,they leave the piza carbord box,cups and cans.lures packiges empty.
ODNR should hire people for spoting scope and when you liter you should be find $1000 ,that money would pay for spoting scope people.

Those arent minnows so everybody knows. They're walleye fry. And the HJ14 shallow green glass is lure. Tight lines!

I fished edgewater last night and those were definitely minnows. Anybody that wants to put some in the freezer should go down there with a cast net. They were loaded in marina,at boat launch and all the way down the rocks from the end to the pier

Yes, the emerald shiners are at in at the ramps. The walleye fry are between 55th and 72nd. There are shad mixed in with them. It was a carpet of little shiny eyes the size of a football field or larger. They are about 2 inches and there eyes are more oriented towards the top. The walleye are feeding on them like whale sharks. Or at least the ones i observed. They lazily swim thru em. Take a couple gulps and swim off the flat and sink down. At least last night. Just tryin to help the rock hounds out. I may take cast net and take a pic for the proof later or maybe not. Tight Lines!

With the amount of fish in the lake plus the amount of spawned out females posted up the last few weeks, I wouldn't be surprised if there's walleye fry out swimming about.
It does surprise me they would be suspended out in open water but I don't know to much about the life of a walleye fry so really don't know. Maybe because it was dark. Lol but it sounds like they was trying to commit suicide swimming in open water along with shad during momma an Poppa's feeding times😂😂
