It depends on the weed growth or where the structure is at. I always try to find those things in 16-23 FOW.

15-20 feet works the best for me at night. During the day I fish in 25-35.

Fishing for walleyes is what I love to do during both hard and soft seasons. Believe me - I'm not an expert, but I've had those eyes bite my line mostly during the early mornings from 4 a.m. - 8 a.m. and from 4 p.m. - 8 p.m. so if you look at it - there's an approximate 4 hour window to wait or be mobile during these times of the day. Hey - don't take my word though because what I say is based on my personal experience and it may or may not work for you. Good luck and stay warm!

Thats what I have always based my fish off of. At sunset fish outside the weedline.

Yeah, I would vary the depth then. Maybe start out deeper and work your way up as the sun sets. If they're only there for a few minutes they could even be on their way up to shallower water? At least you know they're there...

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
