Went out on a mid-lake hump that has produced many walleye this winter and got 1 24" saturday...pretty lame frown.gif I had a aqua vu checking everything out all day and besides the one eye I caught, I saw one small eye, a couple northern, and a school of perch.

Although I did hear some good reports but no luck for me

Just got back, we kept 45 perch and threw back lots of small ones, used lots of minows too. Basically fished the north end.

With cooperative weather, groups were anxious to drop a few lines this past weekend! A number of the good reports were coming in from Sugar Bar - 15 fow, east of Zoomers - 22 fow and on the second break out in front of High Banks in 15 fow. Steady perch bite throughout the day, some sorting needed to be done to pull out the jumbos. With only one week left of the walleye season, many were on the search for some late season eyes. It seemed that the best bite for the walleyes was from 4:00-6:00pm in similar areas with the perch. Gold was the choice jig color tipped with a minnow.

      Seen a post from last night that the front of a truck went thru at the access in Walker, so Poutfest is in doubt.

      Fished this weekend around Vergas for Tuilibees and ice conditions were loking good till sunday mid day.  The public access are getting chewed up quickly and PLEASE use caution going onto a lake if you are driving.  The next 24 hours will not be friendly for our accesses and sadly if someone is going to fall through it's going to be right out in front of one.  I fished Big Pine on Sunday and found a hole that had been created 4" and I could shove the handle of my ice scoop down 24" without a problem.  It wasn't there when I parked 3-4 hours earlier.  Fishing in the area was slow but fish were very curious and chasing lures.  Saw a bunch of guys our chasing crappies and with how quickly they were moving they weren't having much luck.  We found them on big pine and they were very lathargic.  Saw them on camera and they were barely moving around.  Thought with the water running down the holes they'd be feeding like crazy and that wasn't the case.  We caught a decent amount of tuilibees nothing like last weekend but a ton of SMALL ones.  Few a bunch back down the holes.  I'll be hitting it hard this up coming weekend but I'm using a four wheeler to drive around and I'm hoping Wednesday-Friday morning is going to freeze up hard enough to make it safe.  I have 20-25 guys coming up for a pro staff get together so need to find lakes to try out and explore.   Tight Lines and PLEASE STAY SAFE!

      Fished Big Pine Sunday afternoon.  Drove out Saturday and checked ice conditions and they looked great so decided Sunday was go.  Got there and set up for crappies and instantly had a nice fish and it wrapped up in the transducer and I lost him.  That was my highlight.  We set the house up to block the wind since the girlfriend was with and trying to make it fun for her.  When we tore down wow did the lake look different!  We found a hole that we could shove the hole of the ice scoop down  24" and it didn't hit anything.  It wasn't there when we started fishing!  Water was murky as heck and lots of floaters in the water.  Fish were LATHARGIC! saw them on camera and they barely moved through the water swimming around.  Usually we have our camera 4-5 feet away from the jig with perfect clarity not the case this weekend 4' away and we never found our spoon!  Coming off the ice the access was getting chewed up but was still passable.  People need to slow down!  We got passed by a pickup doing 30-35 twice!  We were taking it around 10 mph and was causing waves in the water.  Wont be driving back out until there is a good freeze for a while!

      It's worth a try. I found all mine right next to my house like a foot or less I did find some that were 6-7 feet away. Good luck!

      I'm going to look too. Yard is wet and there should be a few around. Be a good time to try the shock method.
