The walleye bite has been steady but still on the slow side. A few days last week we saw a good bite with several limits come in. The weather has been up and down causing some big pressure changes. This usually doesn't help but we are seeing a decent bite most days after dark. Early morning before sun up has proven to be a good time to pick up a couple fish also. The bite is very light and the fish are feeding on a fair amount of natural forage. Using a small presentation with a minnow head seems to be working the best. A BB Rattler, small flutter spoons and forage minnows work well. Bright colors like pink, red, and orange are top choices for jigs.
The ice conditions as of now are great. There is about 12 inches of snow on top of well over 2 feet of ice. We do have a bridge on the lake about 1.5 miles out. The road goes out close to 5 miles and its in good shape. We are looking at some warm temps forecast for the weekend but that should only affect the snow cover.
We only have 2 weekends left of the walleye ice season so plan your trip now!
