Saturday dead calm and near 80 degrees. Two days later, Monday, 30 knot winds and 36 degrees. I’ve see a lot of weather changes at the Lake, but this one will stick in my memory. Lake Erie truly can be quite the weather contrast.

Another big blow with the added water temperature drop. What will the walleye do now?
