Finally the surf calmed down a bit and we had several days of great weather and small surf. I've been fishing in the bay recently with only marginal luck for some huge smelt and a few turbot.

Made some bait and headed on down to the beach.

Made lots of casts and moved down the beach about every five casts until I finally found some fish.

Had the most unbelievable walleye bite with a fish just about every cast.

It was amazing but the fish did not want ghost shrimp or razor clams. They would only hit lug worms.

Saw these beautiful spring flowers as I made my way back to the car.

All in all a fun day at the beach along with a couple dozen big walleye. I can tell its just going to get better as we make our way to summer
