Walleye bite?

Recommended Posts

Fathead

Hello Y'all,

Just wondering if anyone has been out the past couple of days, and if they have had any success with the eyes? I have read the recent reports from McQuoids, Lundeens & Garrison Sports which claim nighttime has been the best. Has anyone been picking any up during the late afternoon, early evening hours with consistency? If so, what presentation seems to be producing? And what are the key depths, if any? I am thinking of cutting out at noon tomorrow and heading up for the late afternoon/evening run and could use some help. I haven''t fished the big water in 3 weeks!

Fathead, last weekend we caught fish, but there didn't seem to be any depth pattern. All fish caught were on the flats, both on the top and on the side. We used small orange and red spinners on 6' to 7' leaders with leeches and night crawlers. Both baits worked equally well. Good Luck

There's plenty of fish shallow, but you have to have some wind for them to bite during the day. Try anchoring with floats and leeches and trolling Shad Raps.

Rons right, we did very well in 6 feet on the rocks with some good wind.

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much.

      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!

      I heard water was coming out of cracks on another area lake last weekend.  It sounded kind of weird to me and suspicious.  10-18 inches was reported for thickness.  I didn’t think we had enough snow/slush to cause a weight problem already.   Water came up the holes that were drilled too.   The swing in thickness bugs me.  Plus I witnessed a wide variance in ND last weekend.  I did drive out and one spot I parked on had 20 inches on one side of the truck (bare ice) and the other about 14 (hard snow drift).  Kinda shocked me.  But there were trees under the ice too so that might’ve kept ice development slower too.   Keep being cautious out there!
