Where are they hiding? - The Sequel

With more than 50 hours logged looking, waiting, jigging, sitting, thinking and hoping - I have yet to catch a walleye who is just a wee bit bigger than my medium sized shiner. I am presently perched on an inside turn, 14 - 16' below the keel, weeds and a large feeding shelf behind, and a steady drop off ahead, on the south side of Brophy - those of you who have fished this lake will know the spot.

WHAT AM I MISSING???????????? I have fished deep (24 & 26') and shallow (11 & 14') along the weedline. I have used every piece of metal made, including a flash lure made from a spoon - in both twilight and pre-dawn.

Northerns are plenty as are the occasional fingerling walleye. NEED HELP !

Thank you, and -

Have caught limits of walleyes all week on plain red hook and 2" shiners, others using fatheads still catching fish not as many though.Fishing on the sharpest break can find goes from 16ft to 31ft in about 10 yards fish just off the end in 31, or 30 maybe even better but dont go to far up or to far out. And once again the fish are really spooky even that deep dont know why but any commotion no fish

GOOD LUCK THE FISH ARE BITING REALLY LOL

wcmnwalleye gives some good advice...and consider smaller bait....might go against the saying of big bait big fish...but if they're foraging on 2" shiners...the big ones aren't gonna draw em in...plain red hook and small shiner till you find where they're at...

btw...expect the bite to pick up as new years approaches...local co said best fishing so far was on Ida last night...lots of nice 'eyes being caught...reports from other area lakes seem to be showing a slight increase in 'the bite'

wishing good luck in finding 'em on Brophy...

keep fishing...
