The bite has slowed some but there are still fish to be caught out there with some persistence. I know a friend of mine who was out there last weekend and he got all of his fish in 3 - 4' of water away from the crowds on jiggin' raps.

Good luck! Now's the time before the cold front moves in.

Away from the crowds and persistance, now thats an interesting concept for walleyes. I wonder how many people try that

a few of us do smirk.gifbut usually somebody sees u taking a flag or 2 then u have company,i know use a portable,but i love my tipups,then when too much company shows up u just go and find diff. fish,it'll never change so u just hav to get used to it.BUT thats how u find diff. spots wink.gifheres to FLAGSUP laugh.gif by the way they wonder why you were there in the first place cause they dont catch anything HMMMM traffic&walleyes mix like oil & water,which reminds me last night i used some fish attractant an some stayed on top of my hole,an kept my hole from freezing overk,while the other hole with none froze over,neat new trick!learn something new every day wink.gif

Very true. Foam under the tip-up works well too. Also creates "shadow pockets" under the ice for changes in light. Often times this is where your bigger fish will come from. So, no ice in the hole and bigger fish. smirk.gif

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
