I've had my permanent on Winnie all season and have been setting it on the breakline that runs up the East side of the lake. I've had a lot of perch and pike action, as most of us have by the sound of it. However, I have not been able to zero in on the walleye. This will be the last trip up and by what I've been reading it seems like the fish have moved into shallower territory. My house is out on Moxey's in the middle of a small 17' flat. 2 weeks ago it produced 9 keeper Perch (10"-11"), 2 Pike (21" & 25") and 2 small Walleye (both 9") **released**. It was a good time but I promised the Mrs a meal of Walleye and I'd hate to be a chump. I'm planning on moving the shack Friday morning and was thinking I'd go deeper on the break but now am second guessing as it seems my supper has moved up. Any suggestions? This is my first post. Thank you to all who reply.

Sac,

Friday evening, we caught 3 walleyes in 18 feet of water, quarter mile off shore on east side, using fatheads and glow jigs. 5:30-7:00 pm. 15, 16 & 18 inches. Hope this helps.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
