Ive fished pokie the last few days and have been catching quite a few walleyes every time, tonight I was able to ice 15, but did not catch a single one over 13". anyone else having this problem? Not sure if it was the spot I was in or just a fluke..

I don't think I've ever caught a single walleye under 13" out there. It must be the spot that you're fishing. I've also never caught 15 walleyes in one evening out there, so you're doing great in that respect.

Fished Pokie for maybe the 2-3 times before this weekend and had great success for the first time. Sat. myself and a buddy had caught 5 walleyes with one being a 10" cigar, the others were 24", 24.5", 26", 28.5" and one other 20+" lost when it tangled the transducer. I decided to stay and try one more time Sunday evening and caught a 19", 24.5" walleye and BONUS 23" Laker that felt much more like a 10# northern making several crazy runs before it was landed. All fish were caught in 14-15' on the top edge of a hump. I stayed overnight both Sat. & Sun. without a bump from 8pm until 9am the following am. All fish Sat were caught jigging. Walleyes sat. were caught on set lines. The laker hit a buckshot.

I'm hooked on Pokegema now.

Good luck!

Whitetail freak-i've caught small eyes in different spots, but not that many at one time. Got the same problem Deet has -to many large ones and i release anything over 19 inches. An 18 inch eye is alot of meat.

I grew up in GR, still fish it whenever I'm in town and I have also never caught a walleye that small. I feel bad keeping the 16's I get out there, some of the prettiest and fattest fish in the area. They are always full of those pesky smelt, but at the same time, I never fish that shallow either....

Dannnng feathers, below the belt right there. Literally! haha Ive been fishing anywhere from 33-40 ft out there, and usually it is the typical nights you guys are talking about, too many big ones! but I guess it was just a fluke, I'm back at it tomorrow am, I'll report back how I do. thanks for the input guys, -Whitetail

Well after tonight I'm going to be switching things up, 7 eyes tonight with the biggest being 14". not to sure whats happening here, I fished the entire opposite end of the lake tonight. Going to start looking up a little shallower and maybe I can get back on some good sized ones again!

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.

      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!

      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.

      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆

      Still waiting for global warming to ditch my Lazer Mag, always in the truck for thick, virgin ice.    Don't know if it's possible, or advisable, but thought I would throw a 8" K drill bit on it to lighten it up. Should be an adapter for such a conversion. Careful what you wish for, probably rip my arm off with a shredding combo like that 😂

      Leech I still have my old jiffy gas auger mainly for sentimental reasons. I haven’t used it for 3 years now. The only time I start it up is in the garage just to hear that pop pop pop sound lol   I will never go back and have no regrets going electric. Huge weight saver and with an extension will go through any thickness of ice. Starts first pull every time lol    we were fishing 2 weeks ago Swiss cheesing a slough here in SD on 4” of ice when someone else tried to fire up their gas auger and my buddies and I looked at each other almost in disbelief that someone was still using a gas auger.   pros and cons for sure but I think electric has more pros than cons with advancements lately     
    • smurfy
      any ice thickness reports..........especially on smaller not heavily fished lakes???????   chances are i wont be up till after christmas anyway, but............
    • leech~~
