THe south will produce, start in 25-27' gravel areas and work up from there. The fish then are moving up to 10-14 in the early evening to dark. Not as good as the north end but they are there.

Hate to say it but I am not sure how long those nice pictures of those dead walleyes will last on this thread. You will need to go read the rules of picture posting. Just a heads up. Not trying to be a jerk about it, just letting you know they will probably be removed. Nice fish though. Plan on fishin it this Saturday.

Ok, what's wrong with the pics? Looks like maybe a finger in the gills on the first but maybe they kept them???

By the way, nice warthog! lol

Gotta comment on that 1st pic. See that growth or whatever it is on the gill....I caught a walleye this week with the same thing in the same spot. What the heck is it?? Never seen anything like that before.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
