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.

      Looks like Peltier Lake is locked up. Clear Lake was about 97% locked up. Just one little open hole in the middle. Forest Lake also looked to be at least 95% iced up. There were a couple small holes that a bunch of swans were keeping open. Someone on the north shore still has their dock out, and pontoon in the water! They better take advantage of this warm up and get to work!    Would appreciate more reports, especially in Isanti County and Hinckley area.

      I drove by the chain the other day and it looked to be locked up.  Don or anyone else have thickness updates? thanks!

      By my sons stand he sees about 15 to 20 of them scraping around for acorns. Drives him nuts thinking he has the 20 point buck coming in!  😟

      Nevermind the above post. Take a look at the webcams around the lake and there is very little open water. I had read Raven77's report and with the calm conditions and cold she iced up. If a good wind blows it may open up some but by the looks of things it will not happen again until spring. Lets hope for good safe ice conditions this winter and a nice snowpack for the snowmobiles.   Steve

      Where were all these critters back when the season was open?  Been seeing several just about every day during the gun season - none while hunting during the early bow season.  Oh well, looks like a promising spring.

      Really liking the Mountain Mikes reproduction skulls. This is the third one and so much easier than boiling!! 20 bucks at Mills. They have fancy skulls also but I really like the white.

      So sad to hear about the fire yesterday. Appears they are considering rebuilding and I am hopeful they are better than ever in the future!

      And just like that there was ice as far as you could see? From what I have been herring walking traffic this weekend as long as this mild warm up and winds do not change everything.  tyler did go out yesterday and got 1 plus a miss. I personally will not be on the lake until blue thunder can drive out there. All though we added a small Kia to the fleet .  Yesterday the phone was crazy with fishermen calling about how much ice. I'm hereing 3 to 5 closer in.   We have been busy final prepping the house's and trucks. plus bow hunting Looks like I may be adding a grand ice castle to the fleet  plus I added California fish house last year at the end of the season.

      So whos all anxious for this season spearing? I been watching vids lately on youtube getting all pumped up for this coming season.   What is everybody's thoughts on the pike slot zones? I think its gonna be a tough one this year to try judging the sizes in the hole. Any clue if this is a forever thing or only experimental for the zones?
