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.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
