Me and a buddy are looking to catch some eyes and have never fished the area for them before, we are both students at mankato state so somewhere within an hours drive would be nice, any tips would be appreciated, if you want to email me instead of posting feel free:

I would either hit Madison,Tetonka,Elysian,German or Jefferson personally, I know that's a big list, but for me the eyes are in slow mo right know, if you spend alot of time searching and chasing them you might hook into one or two here and there,i'm mainly pursuing the crappie bite that's going on everywhere around here and fishing the eye's only once in awhile, not trying to get your hopes down, but I find this time of year a tough eye bite, were a couple weeks away and a few days of warmer temps before things to start heating up, early ice and late season seems to be the best for me on these lakes. If you do go out and search the best luck I've had is in deep water off of steep breaks where the sand transitions into the mud, run dead sticks or tipups with large baits, Theres a report or two a page or so back that you might want to look at as well, some good info for this area, Good Luck

Hanska for the most part has been slow on the walleyes for the past month. I personally haven't been out there for a couple of weeks because the fishing out there is really never that good during a cold snap, but from what I have heard it has been slow still. I will be out there maybe tomorrow, but for sure Friday and most of the weekend. I will give a report after each outing!

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
