I was out on the lake on the south west side last Saturday evening and picked up a few walleye's on the standard jigging spoon and minnow head right near dusk.

I found about 10" - 12" of good clear ice under about 6" -10" of snow. There was a few spots of very minimal slush but no problem getting around with a wheeler. There are some fairly hard small drifts to be aware of though.

It's a great time to be out on the ice with little fishing pressure or traffic!

Good Luck

Went out of Denny's resort on Wednesday. Fished all afternoon and caught a half dozen eyes. Looks like Nodak has a road plowed out a ways, and there were some vehicle traffic. There were some slushy conditions were we were, but not real bad. Ice measured up to be 14 inches where we were, but I will leave the vehicle driving to the fearless drivers.

Chuckster-

A 1/2 dozen eyes is only 3 real fish after a case of Natty!! When we going to plan a weekend to go up to Red? I might be able to get a Ice Castle house for a weekend from an account of mine but want to wait till the Craps are biting.

I haven't been down there, but Rick from Highbanks told me they had a road out quite a ways now to one of the bars.

I guess a quick phone call would be the best way to get it right from the horses mouth.

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
