walleye location

11 posts in this topic

Hey I have my dads boat for one more day. I have had a lot of trouble locating walleye this week. All I need to know is at what depth they are at and what baits are working. Any other information would be helpful. Thanks guys.

2 - 4' of water adjacent to fresh weed growth that is emergent. Cranks casted into or parallel to these types of areas has been key.

The shallow bite continues to be strong. I was out last night and will be again in the morning. The 24+" fish are starting to show. grin.gif

I'll post a more detailed report in the morning when I return from the lake.

If you're not pulling weeds off 2 out of 4 casts, you're not in the right area. grin.gif Reel as fast as you need to. The fish will get to it if they want it.

I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
