Where is a good start to find some walleyes on opener. Deeper flats or the shallower flats. Any Ideas?

Well I couldn't make it up to Winnie, so I wound up fishing on East Rush and the walleye were deffinitly not in the bitting mood. I fished everywhere on the lake from sunrise to around 1pm and not 1 single eye. I did manage to get 3 pike around 5 lbs. to take home though. I'm going to cook the pike tomorrow for dinner, It's not walleye but fresh fish is good anytime.

oOn the contrary, three of us boated 55 eyes,18 over 15" were boxed. seems they were very titely schooled cause most of the people I talked to said they 0,d out. deep weed lines were holding but seemed like only a few spots. 11 came of first spot on jig and minnnow, second spot was the mother load. spinners and minnows worked well only 6 on leeches cause we ran out of heads. We caught fish all day long except when we had to fill our bellys. 9:30 to 12:00 am and 5:30 to 7:00pm seemed to be prime hours. best of luck.

I also noticed the walleyes were tightly schooled, in deeper water. When do you think they will go back to their normal patterns, of shallower weed lines. I am going to give it another try tonight.

fished west rush for 3 hours this morning checked alot of deep water structure did not even mark a fish. with the warm sun we had today they where probably warming up today. saw lots of bait between the islands but nothing around or under then. water is so clear with no wind you could see 11 feet down. bet there bayed up relaxing catching some rays. think the next system that comes through will spark em off again. good fishing. yesterday on the east i did get 4 eyes out of 5ft round noon in the weeds

Last night I was out from 7:00 till 8:30, caught a 13" & 16" in about 32 ft. Saw 1 other boat catch about a 10" in the same spot. Missed a couple of nice hits. I can't wait till they pick up again. Tryed several spots, only seemed to be in the deeps for now.

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Dakota lithium has a cool little box like that.  Comes with a lithium battery thats half the weight but a bit pricey at around $200

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.

      Open water right in front of launch on linwood. 2 guys went through this morning. Up to their waists in water. Just be careful walking out. Had 9 inches everywhere I drilled on the lake.
