Walleye bite is starting to pick up. Water temps are on the rise. 48° to 54° along the western side of the Bay. The swallow bite should start to happen any day now. The bandit bite has slowed down so its time to start switching over to #9 flicker minnows and #7 flicker shads. Also speed up your crank baits. My best has been 1.8 to 2.0 sog. Zig zag and turns have been producing bites too. I've caught fish on inside turns and outside turns both. So play with the speed and let the fish tell you what they want. 12' to 18' fow seems to be the depths. Fish are in a transition stage right now. Post spawn and pre spawn fish are still being caught. Look for a little stain color in the water. River mouths and drainage ditches with the rain run off will have that stained water .
