So my early ice walleye hotspots are dead as can be now what? Should I be looking for mid lake humps away from the decaying weeds or just deeper off the same weed edges that produced earlier.

I'd look to the deeper weed edges in the area and also look for some nearby deepwater. If there is a gravel rocky bottom in nearby proximity to the deeper water all the better.

We were on Tonka last night on a eedline in 14 feet of water and caught two 16 inch eyes. So I think their still close to weeds but look for healthy weeds and deep structure around those areas.

I have caught walleyes on the deep weed edge, lost a large walleye in 25ft of water last night just off the weed edge. I think the key is to get away from the crowds and the noise and you can still find them in the 15 to 25ft range.

I found some nice boulders in 25' of water in the city tonight and picked up a couple of decent 'eyes on fatheads on a dropper rig. Nice to know walleyes can be had away from the milfoil edge.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

      Hey Guys, I'm wondering what the water temp on the St.Croix is. I Haven't herd anything, all I know is that Catfish become inactive after it drops below 60F. I want to know if they have already become inactive, you would think we would at least have until October.    One more inquire,  anyone one know about a nice carp lake north of the metro. Most people don't like fishing for common carp, but they are a great fall fish to catch when they Get 30+ plus pounds.

      All right man I'll make sure to tell you how I do, I have also been looking at the sunrise river. The sunrise Looks like one of those rivers that all the local kids fished in the 80's, But then it got polluted and over fished. I'll Try the sunrise one of these days, I don't know what i'll catch,  Maybe it's like in the Simpsons with those Three eyed fish.    As for the rum river, I can't wait to fish that. I'll wait for a nice cold front when all those small mouth start to eat everything in site, They need the fat for winter. I'll make sure to tell you how it goes.
