With the warmer weather the walleye and perch fishing is just beginning. Fishing in boats has been producing many walleyes. We have been seeing limits now for four weeks. The blade baits, rapala jigging and whistle rigs (which is a two-hook jig with a night crawler). This year boat fishers have also been using Fisher Brother adjustable walleye rig with a slow death hook and a night crawler, and have been catching walleye for two weeks.
In front of MarDon Resort, up near the Potholes State Park and at Medicare Beach some rainbow are hitting power bait, Pautzke’s salmon eggs and the old faithful night crawler with marshmallow float. Two families reported rainbow at Windmill Lakes and Upper Goose Lake.
One of the finest permit draw for hunting in the Pacific Northwest is near MarDon Resort. We are talking about the Desert A 200 unit. This area hosts amazing farming ground with fabulous feed and the natural desert shrub steppe, which can hide mule deer. On a fish outing in the desert hunt area, going down C Road and sneaking up to cast a rooster tail on a good looking lake and had this amazing mule deer pop out of nowhere from 15 feet away. In years past many of these big mule deer are all over the golf course across from Potholes State Park. Each morning we take goose hunters to the blind way before daylight. You must totally be alert so you don’t miss the big mule deer. Some of these animals are totally amazing.
Brian and Matt Baltzell and Kelly Ross, Duck and Goose guides for MarDon Resort have just finished processing and packing up the 2015/2016 duck and goose pepperoni. Many of our customers continually ask us for our duck and goose meat after the hunt.
