In South Central MN it seems like Walleye bites are never continuous. They may bite for 3 days max in one spot, then your having to look for a new spot. I think its because some of these lakes are so pressured and fished alot that they are not hungry and they get scared. Also with the weather, the weather always changes and the pressure changeschanges, all these factors will change how they bite. Although in Canada the fish always seem to bite...

Good luck fishing! And I hope this helped. Here's a pictures of a walleye I caught on a local lake in South Central MN on June 4, 2015

Got another nice walleye last night, good eating size. a few got away, but I think I'm on to them. Anyone else having any luck with Walleyes this open water season so far around here?

That's a good start, where there's one there's gonna be more. Keep trying different tactics until you find out what they are really hitting on. Don't be afraid to try other areas on the same lake with similar depths/structure.

I have had no problems with walleye this year. If anything the DNR has over stocked the lakes with Walleye. Small one everywhere, perfect size for bigger ones to eat.

 Yes, Walleye are always on the move. If the wind changes the fish move!!!! I will catch Walleye on an inside bend one day and on the next day find them 800 yards away on a point.

 ( 1 ) Learn to troll and cover a lot of water.  ( 2 ) ditch the anchor. 

 If you can't find the fish and they won't come to you, well you will just have to seek the out. Don't be a one trick pony.

The other thing, this time of year you want to do is focus on shallow shorelines with a bit of a bank around hard bottom if a creek is feeding into the spot so much the better, as well as weed edges on rock bars.

      Can I cut the quick connect from the vexilar charger and then cut alligator clips off my lithium charger and switch them with no problems? I know there would be no issue with the alligators on the vex charger. Curious about the lithium with quick connect. The new 20 has the quick connect.

      On a lake near Sugar. Got on to some great sunfish they were deeper than I thought 22 feet deep suspended at 14 feet. Nonstop for 2 hours a black tungsten jig worked best I did try plastics for a bit for building up confidence but the fish showed otherwise quickly. Went back to 3 euro worms 4 was to many . Then I got a 10.5 bluegill my first one and wouldn't you know it my phone was about 2 blocks away. So I let her go not going to keep a fish out of water to get a glory picture. Oh well next time. Get out while you can the lakes were good with the warm up but who knows in a couple of weeks. That was on Friday. Drilled a few holes for an older gentleman that just wanted to fish A while I was glad to help out enjoyed chatting with him. Then went out today almost the same thing but unfortunately near a community spot and within 2 hours everyone was out there and a dog peed on my fish house was not happy threw snow on the house cleaned when i got home I left soon after very rude people unfortunately and the fishing died right away oh well.

      Having fished this lake from shore in the summer and my daughter also and did real well, I can't figure why ice fishing is so bad. 2 full days and nothing! 3" perch galore. Moved around and had my camera. Didn't see any life forms whatsoever!!!!! Never coming back. Hardly a soul on the lake on a 43 degree.Sat.??? What?????👎👎👎

      Heading to the Virginia Mn area Ice fishing in a few weeks. I've fished the Duluth area most of my life but finally spreading out a bit. 
      Not hoping to get anyones "spot".
      How are ice conditions? Anywhere to stay away from safety wise?
      Any dead lakes that would be a waste of my time on a limited trip?
      Thanks yall

      Hey everyone!

      Was planning to put the new ice saw to use and do some sight fishing but curious how the conditions are?
       
      Thanks!

      Fished hard for 3 days on Big Stone Lake and the bite was very, very tough.  The nice Marked a lot of fish and just couldn't get them to bite. Did manage some dandy perch and trophy gills,(released) but not a lot of numbers.  Saturday late afternoon we stuck 3 gills over 10".  My nephew had one that was at least 10 1/2" but released it before I could measure or get a pic.  Sunday we had 2 more at or just under 10".  Had to downsize to get bit.  Did catch a couple on set lines with fatheads.   Spoons didn't get bit often.  Tungsten jigs or flies tipped with plastics or eurolarvae got most of the action.  
      Found fish in or near basin areas near shallower rock structures.  We would drill, drill and then drill some more.  Once we found fish we would make smaller moves or wait out schools cruising through the area. Travel conditions were excellent.   Just had to watch out for the occassional drift or old plowed road.  Here are a few pics from the weekend.

      FYI:  Few hours ago an ATV went thru narrows under bridge between North n South Center.  Zero - no injury’s n ATV out of water.   Odd to see fire crew wrap Caution tape around THIN ICE signs been there long time. Fun. Ok but come on man......THINK!   Do a lil recon n homework before heading out...each time. Might save yer life. Water is Dang COLD under that ice. Relax - have fun - be safe.   keep on Rocken!   T

      I’d go as high of amperage you can afford and can get in a certain bank. 15 should suit you great. I got a 2 bank 12amp last spring but really wish I would have went with the 15 for a more faster recharge time between trips.

      Getting a MinnKota Precision charger for my new boat, a 1875 Pro Guide. It will have a 24 volt Ulterra on the bow and 24 volt Vantage on the stern. The batteries are group 31 AGMs. I've always had 10 amp per bank chargers in the past. I will be spending more time on the water with this boat so draining the batteries down more. Is the 15 amp per bank better, worse or no difference? I am leaning towards the 15 amp for quicker charging. Getting a 3 bank so the starting battery will be topped off also.

      Stopped by the dealership yesterday. The Helis 10 or 12 will fit but only if the gimbal mount is attached directly to the folding section. Any mount will make it to tall. I guess I'll be taking the graph off, not to big a deal.
