Fished rice once about 16 years ago..just got bullheads. Fished walnut about 2 or 3 years ago and caught only one or 2 eyes but did end up with a ton off bullheads. Dont know about rice but walnut is a hit and miss place..mostly you miss!

Every year I hear from a friend that lives in Wells that a 'take a kid fishing contest' is held every year on Rice? I've posted questions regarding this and have never gotten any replies? It's a tough lake to get any answers on. Walnut I seen a few guys shooting carp this year there. Hadn't heard or seen much outta there in awhile.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
