Eagle was my favorite "close to home" walleye lake several years ago but it seems to have really gone downhill. Check out the recent DNR survey, it says the same. Anyway, people always talk about the hole in the south bay, but I've done better on the north side (facing 694). Typical walleye tactics produced, but like most metro lakes, the fish get mighty elusive come mid-January.

We just used glow jigs with whole fatheads under bobbers and small glow jigging spoons with minnow heads. Nothing too fancy.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
