Yes I had some good luck last Saturday with a silver hammered spinner, crawler harness, 1/4 oz slip sinker in St Albans Bay and off Seguchie point. Lots of 20-22 inch fish. Seemed like they wanted this more than the lindy/leech setup.

I was up on Saturday and we caught 55 walleyes on spinners tipped with crawlers behind bouncers. We didn't have any hogs but we did have six slots. The fishing is incredible.

I agree with Ron, just an incredible bite. I have never seen anything like it. Spinners, lindy, leech, or crawlers they are all equal with non-stop action. Numbers boated are exremely high for everyone I talked to this week-end. Simply amazing.

Yep... the bite is incredible. Finally caught a nice perch, so we know theres at least one in there. Also caught a tagged fish, and the tag popped out while she was thrashing in the net. Thought about sending it to the DNR with a message "20 inches... tasted **** good."

The bite is truly incredible.

I fished the North End in the morning using strictly leeches and caught some very nice walleyes. Very healthy looking.

We noticed a bit of a hatch going on and in the afternoon I switched to crawlers. We fished closer to Big Point on the east side. We had 5 other people fishing with us and they all used leeches. We caught 22 fish and 2 carp from 2:30 to 5:30). Of those I caught 8 walleyes and 1 carp all using crawlers with spinner.

My Dad switched to crawlers and caught 3 eyes using crawlers. along with missing 5 (his hook-set isn't what it should be). 11 eyes were boated out of 21 total using crawlers. It was 4 1/2 guys using leeches and 1 1/2 using crawlers (Dad 1/2 time using each).

This was right after a small hatch earlier that day. I would guess that crawlers may be a bit more effective if you have a mayfly hatch going on.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.

      Cliff and Byron are planning a Kids ice fishing day February 12. The event is out of Fortune bay Marina  9-1. The event is for Tower and Nett lake kids. I know Cliff is looking for a few helpers.

      Cuz that’s just me.  🙂  I just like tinkering and seeing what I can get away with - and learn about things.   Just got done with a fine hone stone and got out some small nicks I’m pretty sure I got from cutting dirty ice in ND.  I’ll find out tomorrow how I did.

      Like @eyeguy 54 says, Frank has been the go-to guy for members of this site for years.  He does it by mail and is in Saginaw, MN.   It’s interesting that you ask about re-shaping also.  I know Frank has the Nils jig and the drill blades are curved.  I was considering tuning up my own today before they get too dull but am concerned about maintaining the shape of the curve. Since I was a machinist in a former life, I’m still gonna try it.  Then maybe send to Frank. 😀
