Start on the outside weedline. 16-20 feet deep. As for bays... I've caught walleyes in Grays, Wayzata, Excelsior, Robinson, Carsons, Gideons, Browns, and Smiths Bay on the east side. I spend much less time on the west end but have had success in Halsteads, Smithtown, and Cooks as well. The general spots are not a secret. Points, reefs, islands, etc. It's the spot on the spot that you need to find in order to catch fish. This just takes time, and your GPS should help shorten the search.

Hey Mike, the wife and I are in the process of buying a house by Lake Susan in Chan. So it looks as though I'm going to be back down in the S.W. metro. Do you still live in Eden Prairie?

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
