Steve Carney: For Missouri River’s spring walleyes, think small jigs

My first fishing trip to the Missouri River in central South Dakota was a successful one, with two days of magnificent weather. Highs both days were in the 70s, and there was no wind. I couldn’t ask for a better trip.
I spent the first three hours fishing deep-water spots that I’d fished last season, but initially struck out. The guests with whom I was fishing were giving me the “look,” and I didn’t blame them. It all changed later in the afternoon.
