Heading out to Bald Eagle tonight. First time on the lake for Eyes. Can anyone help out with water temp or depth. I'd like to find my own spots but narrowing down the depth would be nice. Thanks in advance and if anybody else will be out there, Ill be in a Gray Gruman with a buddy and my faithfull golden. Can't go without her.

I would like to learn this lake as well for Eye's. Let me know your success. I might have to try one night after work as well.

It was a beautiful night on the water. The crappies were working minnows on the surface, which was pretty cool. Wish we could have done better on the eyes though. One small one and a couple nice perch.

I was out there tonight, slow fishing for the eyes. Friend caught one 18in and one 13in walleye. Panfish were in full swing but very small. They were chasing minnows all over the shallows.
Only saw one other walleye caught so the fish weren't jumping in the boat.

I was using a lindy rig when i was out there and it work just fine I all so saw some people using jigs I didn't try but I think it just matters on what the fish want and you should be ready to try both if ones not working. the deapth i was fishing was 30 and down and I thought it was alot easyer to go from one depth to the next with a lindy rig and all ways nowing your on the bottem you can also cover alot more area in a faster time with a lindy rig I would say but the best thing to do is do what you like. i like to lindy rig but I know alot of people pefer jigs so try what you want I saw people have luke with both

I've fished this lake a few times in the winter for crappies, but never fished for walleyes in open water. Would a lindy rig with a leech work, or would I have better luck with a jig and a minnow? I do have a map of the lake, are there any area's or depths I should target this time of year?

Any help or advice would be great.

Ole

Thanks for the info Q. This lake is my personal enemy. I've probably spent 40 hours walleye fishing on this dumb lake over the past couple years & haven't caught one yet. I did locate everything else in the lake that swims, tho.

I'll be out banging my head against this wall again soon. grin.gif

      With the snow that fell last night, that literally is glued to the ice from the warm temps and light rain; and now seeing more in the forecast, it's sure setting up to be a very dangerous early ice season out there. Even Mud didn't freeze well. Only about an 1.5" a hundred yds from the road on Saturday. YIKES!

      I heard that it was still open 10-14 days ago but with this cold it should be making ice quickly.  I was on a bigger lake Saturday and we had 7-8" on a lake that reopened last week when it warmed up.  I'd be very nervous about going across the lake especially crossing any deep water holes.  The next 7 days should be making very good ice though if weather holds true.

      Good share. I'm really itching to get out on some of those local lakes. I was thinking of trying today but I'm going to hold off now.

      Thanks again, Don. Really do appreciate the updates!
    • Bass Thumb
      That's what happened to mine too.

      Went out this morning to check the ice on both sides of my peninsula.    Found ice anywhere from 1-4".   The area  found 1" i did not expect it.   There are also small ice heave air pockets with only 1 or 2" of ice on them and open water underneath.   Now with the fresh snow is is very hard to distinguish these little heaves or thin ice.   I am going to wait a few more days here yet and I know the ice here well.   I heard a report of a 4 wheeler on shoe, this is more than stupid.   No fish is worth your life.  Be safe   Don

      Can't get on the lakes yet, but there are still fish in the river.

      You'd get a good laugh at what the consistent check cashers on the ice fishing circuits, have been have been using for years. $4.99

      I am always looking for better ice rods but I hate paying more than 50 bucks

      You could start by calling some resorts.  I've found that sometimes they have some for sale or other people have them for sale at the resort.
