I am planning on giving Whiteface a try and wonder if anyone can offer any basic suggestions for next weekend. I will be looking for walleyes and would like some help as to how deep they are, what bait to try and help with deadheads to look out for. I know where the landing is off Hwy 16...that's about it! Thanks for any advice.

we do good on leeches and a floating lindyrig. back trolling on the breaks just very your depth till you find them. watch for rocks with the boat blush.gif . there are not that many deadheads by the launch.The biggest walleye that we have ever gotten out of there is around three LbS there is a ton in the 10- 15 inch range and a maybe get one over 1.5lbs.

Thanks, Bubs. I see by the DNR map that the lake is pretty shallow. With all the heat, would you suggest starting in 20 fow and working back up if you don't find them? By the way, I saw a picture of a 5 lb eye caught there earlier this summer, and that's what got my interest going. I would be OK just getting into the smaller ones, though. smile.gif

There's a rock pile straight out from the landing by the dam that's usually marked with a buoy - mark the ends with your own buoys and then troll slowly around. We have done well on fat heads in about 10-12 feet. Most of the walleyes are pretty small - we can't seem to hook into anything over a pound, which is what the other posters say.

Good luck!

troll number 5 shad raps in 8 to 10 feet of water anywhere on the lake and you will pick up walleye and northern, but most of the eye's seem to be pretty small.(under 14 inches)

I've had real good luck the last week fishin' 12-17 foot reefs w/just a phelps floater and leeches. The deeper reefs seem to hold the bigger fish, but less bites. Good luck, Junky...................

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
