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!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
