We fished for northerns with artificial all day and the fish were pretty sluggish. Lots of lazy follows...seen 2 or 3 10lb plus fish, the rest were all under that. Big change from fall when they hit a lure 5 times in a row!@

I wont be up till middle of june..WE know the pattern will change to deeper water by then.Just interested where you caught these larger walleyes and your most successfull pattern you used.When I used to live in mn. early in may, we often caught walleye in 6 feet of water,on lake kabetogama.

Jigs and minnow, green, purple did the best for us. 8-10 ft of water.

I was feeling pretty good about a 22 1/2, 19+ and a 16 1/2 until our friends came in with 13 keepers. They were fishing shallow at dusk using a jig and a minnow. They said they changed color often and made sure their minnow was lively. We caught ours during the day using traditional walleye tactics. Sunday we did not get even a nibble.

You ever work that slow slope on the back current behind Moxie?I parked a houseboat there once & drilled them for 3 days straight on crawlers.

I also did good there on Namikan in Old Dutch bay .Pigs Island treated me pretty good too.

      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.
