I have been using fatheads with a genz worm/buckshot rattle spoon tiped with a minnow head or just a small hook with a split-shot 12 inches up. I have been finding that you have to mix it up to get some of the finicky eyes to bite.

Good luck and good fishing!

going deeper all depends on how deep you are now.

I was about 18 ft. 24-30 ft or even deeper?

65 feet is a good depth for truck winning walleyes!!! Just ask the guy driving his new Ford he won last weekend.

65ft was the depth the guy at the Brainerd Jaycees was fishing when he caught the 5 lb walleye that won a truck.

I am thinking of trying 45 - 55 on mintonka this weekend. I catch 3 or 4 a night during the week, but once the traffic reaches the "crazy" stage things really shut down. My theory is when the noise level goes up "as it was during the extravaganza" that the fish head deep.

Can anyone confirm or deny this theory?

randallt,

I've been thinking about doing the same thing this weekend. I don't usually go beyond about 30ft on Tonka, but I know there's opportunities beyond it. Assuming I'll be with a buddy, I'd like to find a steep drop, set a line on the weedline, one in mid 20's, mid 30's, and one in the 45-50ft range.

good luck

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
