Last few days bite has been good – it warmed up some, mainly perch and some walleye. If you can move around and cover ground there are a lot of big schools of perch out there – any transition areas, any deep mud breaks, along shorelines where it goes to the basin along the edges. Walleye are out in deeper areas but not to deep, mostly they will bite at 14-22″ depth mainly at night – not much for a day bite at all.
We finally have lots of ice, we have a road to Hennepin and a goat trail to the Gravel.
We are using larva for perch using frostees and rattlin’ flyers as well as some of the new Lindy Tackle. Try downsizing to a smaller pan fish type lure using some of the new Lindy Tackle – Ice Worms, Fat Boy, Toad, use a couple of larva and beat the bottom a little bit, lift it up and watch it disappear.
