Saratoga Lake Fishing Report: 05/07/2022 at 09:26 am - Nate Galimore Fishing - Maple Shade

Today I finally was able to get out on the water to go after walleye.  I started out catching Chain Pickerel about two hours earlier.  After checking the flats in the southern basin of the lake, I moved to the eastern shore just north of Snake Hill.  I worked a NorthSouth line in 12 feet of water.  I cast a Gulp Minnow and slowly popped it off of the bottom as I drifted.  The wind was really howling, and boat control was tough.  Instead of fighting the wind I used it to push the boat the South, while casting the lure North. I would drift for about 150 yards.  At the end of the drift, I would use the trolling motor to get back where I started.  This tactic also got me into nice Yellow Perch. The Walleye I was catching where each between 18-20 inches.
