The paddlefish were somewhat tough this year- low flow until late in the season and now more flow than you could ever imagine. There's no way right now, if the season were to still be open, to effectively snag.
That walleye is a good one- what part of the lake did you get it and what kind of structure? Spawn on the tribs has been done for a while but pattern on the lake is different and probably behind some. Crappie are definitely behind some, and the changing water levels (higher) and changing weather are going to make it another tough year likely for fishing but good for the spawn.
