Went up Sunday night and took my dad for what could be his last trip of this year with the weather droping like it is. Unlike other reports we fished deep water to get our fish. With all the boats in 4-8 fow we opted to get away from them. Water depths from 10-15 ft. With #12 and 14 huskys, we got down close to the bottom and even hit some rocks every once in a while.

Yep, those big walleyes aren't afraid of the bigger baits. Nice fish and report. Even better to get out with your pops. Good job keeping an open mind and not following the crowd.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.

      When I was a kid, I used to ask my dad to take me ice fishing--he would always say "wait 'till it gets warmer"......
