Well, I went out last night. Overslept a little and got set up around 3:00. Caught a fat 20 incher about 4:00. A couple sniffed but only caught the one. 35 feet on a fathead while jigging a pimple at the other hole. Will be out tonight.

I have heard 30 feet over rocks late at night (after 10 or 11) is working well. What depth are you in? I may head out tomorrow night.

Tried an inside turn on Brown's Friday evening, jigging in 19ft tip up in 28ft. No luck. Tried a midlake hump with rocks Sunday evening, jigging 35 ft, tip up in 44ft to start and moved to 32 ft. No luck. I saw a few 'eyes with the camera but no takers.

wmn luv me walleye fearme

good to know its not just me struggling, had a good day on super bowl sunday but since then its been slow. Haved moved the permanent about 4 times. Rocks depth 22 feet, then the transition out in 36 feet off the pile. Then weed edge in 18 then outside the edge in 20 feet. Every time i talk the guys at wayzata they make it sound like everyone is killing them except me

I agree, the ice season seemed to start off better than usual for me, but I've been defeated by the 'eyes at least the last 4 times out. Only one weekend left to redeem ourselves.

I'll be there on saturday, plan on staying late. Hopefully I'll end the season on a good note. Have only fished minnetonka once (last month) and was after panfish, so I'll definitely be exploring lot's of area. Hopefully the walleye's will make my adventure ALOT easier. ;\)

Spent the night last night in 24' and nothing. Not even a bite. Will be moving to 30ish today to try to end on a positive trend.

Wife is going out of town back home to ohio with my son this weekend so I will be out all fri night /sat/sun in 3 days/nights hoping to find the eyes somewhere and when i do they will pay a heavy price for dodging me the past couple weeks. If their the right size they might even pay with their lives.

Really cold windy nights with lots of cracking haven't done anything for me so far this year. I think I might be inside until Friday.

Edit: The 'eyes I posted about earlier were caught before the wind came in, \:\)

I've been sucking it up on the walters for a month now. My tried and true spot has been pounded and nada going on there. Still has perch though, but once dusk hit, not even a blip for an hour. I left after that.

Those Wayzata bait guys always find them.

So what's the general consensus for the lack of bite..roller coaster weather patterns? time of year? bumper crop of baitfish? They gotta be hanging out somewhere.

was out two nights ago and caught a 8 inch eye and the rest i have caught this past month are all in the 8-13 inch range. What depth did you catch that 25 incher in.

I think it's time of year or they are just in patterns that I can't figure out, but hey I'm a bass guy. Rumor has it deep, but I was skunked in 28 feet and had perch all around so I thought it would be the ticket - not. Still have this weekend to try.

I was gonna put a tip up out deep (25 to 35 ft) for walleyes, in that depth are they generally hugging the bottom or would I be better off letting the bait sit 2 or 3 ft up?

The ones I've seen on my camera have all been hugging the bottom

      Use a layer of painters (blue) masking tape on cork first, to help protect it, then apply whatever you want. Electrical tape is used by most, but I like using hockey tape.

      Mille Lacs would be a good choice. One of the resorts should be able hook you up.

      I used a self adhering tape to attach them,  but now the tape is getting sticky and a pain to use.  Any ideas what something else too use? Thanks

      I love big trout. Been hitting snowbank pretty hard the last few days. Lots of follows no hits yet!

      Thanks for the reply Rick... One more hour to check off something from my only get to do it once bucket list doesn’t sound bad at all. If it were you is that where you would go?

      Wow, that was low!   But, from someone so use to bending over-well......
    • Rick
      Check out the South Central Forum, or MN Metro Forum and ask there as well as the SE MN- Rochester Forum. You may get more answers there as well.   If you could extend to three hours away Mille Lacs Lake could for sure accomodate what you are looking for.

      Hello...  I am coming down to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester from Homer, Alaska on February 11-20 and would like some advice. On the afternoon of Friday the 16th  through the evening of Sunday the 18th I have the time to go fishing. I would like to go after some pike and walleye. I would like to stay in a heated shack during my time on the ice. Also some rental gear, a radio and bait might be nice. Any advice on who rents shacks within a 2+ hour drive of Rochester with good size fish? I am looking more for decent size than numbers.  Thanks JFaber
