The Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce's annual Walleye Weekend tournament coincided with some of the week's highest temperatures Saturday. A relatively dry spring has left waterlines low along many a shore, and anglers could walk across the spillway on the southern edge of Big Spirit Lake without getting their shoes wet. A number of hooks were dropped from boats and docks over some of the area's deeper waters, but some hopeful fishermen tried their luck from shore.
