I fished west on Sunday out of Indian Hills Resort and had a good day pulling cranks for walleyes over smelt in 40-60 FOW. Some nice eaters and a couple of "picture fish", along with several pike. Big RR's on boards or Flicker Minnows and RR's on leadcore worked best for me. Miles of smelt in this area of the lake right now.
