We plan on going up middle of next week and wonder which is better for catching slot walleyes. We plan on doing most fishing on Mukooda but incase they are not biting there we need an alternative. Also do you guys use minnows or rapalas?

I couldn't buy a strike on a rapala all week. The fish were hugging the bottom in 12' of water on Saturday the 23rd and dropped (all over) to 19' - 22' by Wednesday. Both are hard to use a rapala because you are either in the rockpiles or weeds as the fish were biting 6" off the bottom.

Fish the rocky point breaks 19-22', use a stinger on a jig with a minnow and buy bait before you get there.

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.
