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.

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

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
