I myself have never been out there in the winter but I heard the hot walleye lure last year on the ice was a plain firetiger jigging rap

jig raps in fire tiger #5 and #7 thats all i use for some reason they out perform jig spoons and any other type of jigs. you can add a minnow head to the treable if you like.

I remember someone saying that the fish on the river are looking for a "river presentation." Now, I'm not totally sure what that means.

Can anyone shed light on what that might consist of during the hard water period?

i guess i don't know what he means but, every body of water has it's lures that works. i have tries go devils, glo devils ,frosties, buckshots and none have produced even close to a jigging rap. jigging raps were all that we used growing up and now i know why the fish on the river just prefer it over other baits. a plain hook and minnow on a dead stick will also produce. even the crappies will hit the jigging rap if they come through. i don't know if this answers your question or not.

Lately the bite on the river has been extremely slow, there are fish down there, but you really have to entice them. The samller the better, and definetly not a whole minnow. Small jiggin' raps, small swedish pimples, or a plain glo hook works very good.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
