Tom Steed Walleyes

Aspiring Pro Mike Diehl sends us this report from Lake Tom Steed:

The fishing on Tom Steed has been tough lately for both Bass and Crappie, but it looks like my luck has changed just a little.
I caught my first Walleye today, 6lbs. 24", while fishing a 1/8 oz spinner bait on a micro light rod and reel with 6 lb test.

The Walleye are starting to spawn and are making their beds close to the bank. I was really shocked when it came to the top and I started to lip it like a bass - good thing I didn't because this thing has got some teeth!

Editor's Note:
Thanks for the report Mike. Glad you didn't lose any fingers!

    Walleye are broadcast spawners—they don't make "beds."

    The nice fish pictured is likely a saugeye, a sauger-walleye hybrid.
