Well after listening to TO preach about shallow water walleyes for the better part of two years, I finally gave it a try last thursday and have been out 4 times since then and have had significantly better days than anyone else fishing the lake that I have talked to. Last week I caught 6 walleyes casting X-raps into downed trees, biggest was almost 26 inches, the next time out I picked up 4 more in 2 hours with the biggest being a 25, yesterday casting Shallow Shad raps I caught 8 with a 25 incher thrown in.

The pattern has been to find baitfish busting the surface and just start casting, also pulled a bonus 32" northern out a few days ago.

I feel like I have missed alot in the last few years by always trolling out deeper or live bait rigging.

This post was not meant to brag about my sucess only to encourage other people to go out and try fishing shallow water because it can be very productive and also very simple.

that has been the ticket for me too, although it was last year. problem is i havent been able to find the bait fish this year. too much river fishing. Only hit the lakes once a week if i am lucky.

Hey riverrat don't forget who helped you catch some of those eyes including the 26" and the northern.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
