Yeah, I'll be back this friday and saturday. last week I only caught 2, both real nice 3 1/2- 4 lbs. target 30-55 fow water. I got one at 42 ft and the other at 30. buckshot rattle spoons with minnow heads work. these fish will chase, get'em worked up and then they nail it. I was on the WFC on the lower part of the lake. first Ice these fish can be speared in shallow water and as winter goes on they go deeper.( fall spawners )I pulled mine out of the smoker yesterday and they are awesome eating. If I get some more this week I'm going to try a fish boil. There might be some better lakes out there but I target eyes at the same time and maybe a stray laker too.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
