I am planning on giving Whiteface a try and wonder if anyone can offer any basic suggestions for next weekend. I will be looking for walleyes and would like some help as to how deep they are, what bait to try and help with deadheads to look out for. I know where the landing is off Hwy 16...that's about it! Thanks for any advice.

we do good on leeches and a floating lindyrig. back trolling on the breaks just very your depth till you find them. watch for rocks with the boat blush.gif . there are not that many deadheads by the launch.The biggest walleye that we have ever gotten out of there is around three LbS there is a ton in the 10- 15 inch range and a maybe get one over 1.5lbs.

Thanks, Bubs. I see by the DNR map that the lake is pretty shallow. With all the heat, would you suggest starting in 20 fow and working back up if you don't find them? By the way, I saw a picture of a 5 lb eye caught there earlier this summer, and that's what got my interest going. I would be OK just getting into the smaller ones, though. smile.gif

There's a rock pile straight out from the landing by the dam that's usually marked with a buoy - mark the ends with your own buoys and then troll slowly around. We have done well on fat heads in about 10-12 feet. Most of the walleyes are pretty small - we can't seem to hook into anything over a pound, which is what the other posters say.

Good luck!

troll number 5 shad raps in 8 to 10 feet of water anywhere on the lake and you will pick up walleye and northern, but most of the eye's seem to be pretty small.(under 14 inches)

Fishing Junky

I've had real good luck the last week fishin' 12-17 foot reefs w/just a phelps floater and leeches. The deeper reefs seem to hold the bigger fish, but less bites. Good luck, Junky...................

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
