It might be a while before you can fish Walker Bay with all of this snow. It had only been ice covered for a couple of days before it hit. I have heard of a couple people trying different parts of the main lake with up to six inches. However this was before the snow, someone I know was going to give a couple places a try this morning, so I will report back if I hear anything positive.

There has been some traffic on the west side out towards Sand Point. As far as the rest of the lake it is hard to tell, but I have no seen anyone out there yet. Im guessing there will be more signs of life this weekend.

What kind of structure do the walleyes relate to in walker bay. I've caught some on the humps but I haven't tried anywhere else. Do they relate to shoreline structure as well?

Thanks

Joe

i was out there yesterday, fishing was slow. only managed a few jumbos. still a few slush pockets. my dads brand new house got destroyed coming in, it is on skis and the front corner got hooked and broke the back off the bottom which caused the canvas to rip all the way up the side. so that was not so fun. we fished out by sand point.

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
