The walleye bite has been very good all week.

Any type of presentation has been getting fish!

I have been fishing jigs/minnows or Lindy Rigs with minnows or crawlers in water that is 12' to 42' deep.

Slow and easy is working best for me.

fished niles bay, wolf bay and frazer bay on tuesday. frazer bay was most productive, fishing 30fow with 1/8 oz. jig. fish bit on minnows, crawlers and leeches but it was a light bite so more fish were hooked using half a crawler. didn't have any luck under 20fow anywhere. be back saturday am weather permitting.

I know this on the other end of the lake, but we were doing pretty darn good by Mud Creek Bay area in 20 to 33 FOW with leeches on spinner rigs(day time) and 7 to 9 FOW with slip bobbers and leeches(early morning and evenings). We didn't get around to trying worms, and minnows didn't do anything for us.

I was up on the big V from June 9th thru the 15th. The fishing was great! Slowly trolled lindy's the whole time with size 8 and 6 red and Flo. Orange hooks on 2 to 3 foot snells. The speed was best between 0.4 and 0.8 mph. We caught enough unders to send limits home with 7 people and about 10 to 15 slot fish. One nice pike, five smallies and many nice bonus Jumbo Perch. We fished from 10 to 19 feet the entire time. Mostly in the middle of the lake by Gold Island, Muskrat Channel and Grassy Point. It was a great time had by all. We will be back next year a little earlier. The group we were with also spent some time fishing for sunnies and were rewarded with plenty of nice sized fish. The biggest walleye was 23 inches and the biggest under was 16 3/4's. The bulk of the fish caught were 13.5 to 15 inches. They were all nice healthy looking fish. I can't wait to find them next year! I forgot to add it was all leeches and nightcrawlers but the crawler seemed to have the edge and we only used half crawlers and they did just fine.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
