Walleye are on the main lake reefs in 29-50fow. Most of the fish were caught in the 40-48 foot range. When the wind kicks up the larger fish seemed to become more active. Smallies are on the same reefs but are sitting on top of the reef.

If it is calm try vertical jigging. If the wind kicks up try lindy rigging. I wish I would've had my downriggers with cause I think we could have been more successful as we marked many fish in the 50-60' range.

Really want to take your time bringing fish in from those depths. Mortality likely when not brought in carefuly. Good Fishing!

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
