    Pool 5A has been producing enough Walleyes for me to eat for the last week.  We have been taking fish on wing dams and current breaks with 3-inch white twister tails on a ¾-ounce jig head. 
    We have been targeting areas where Shad are visibly active.  White Bass and Smallmouth Bass have been in the upper water column.  A quick sinking jig has gotten us to the Walleyes below the Shad and Bass.  Most fish have been hitting when the jig is on its way down to the bottom of the river.
    Pool 5A allows for six fish over 15-inches.  We have not taken our limit as fresh fish are the best for supper.  A slow retrieve bouncing off the bottom of rock piles has been producing.
