Went out from 4:30 until 7:30 last saturday. Had a pike break off a leader, as we were setting up tipups. One other bite the rest of the time. Fishing is slow right now, and the lake is nothing but a slushy mess right now.

We fished last weekend but I wasn't able to post. In response to the question, where might I find some walleye. We targeted them on Saturday and while we didn't get too many we were successful. We worked mid lake structures that were about 12-15 FOW both jigging and using tip ups. Got some nice fish under the slot jigging and lost a very large fish at the hole due to a broken leader. (She'd have gone back so no worries), but the walleye were active.
Last weekend the snow on the lake was very deep and much of the lake was nearly un-passable. Weather conditions will need to be watched carefully and be especially careful of water on top of the ice (flowing) where the river channels are.
There was almost 24" of ice, but where there's current that can erode quickly.
Good luck, maybe we'll see you out there. Focused primarily on getting my shack off the lake. If we accomplish that, we'll be fishing Saturday evening and Sunday morning. Will share a report if there's one worth giving
Looking to try this body if water this weekend. Was wondering if anyone had any luck with walleye. Not looking for honey holes but if some one could point me in the right direction for crappie and walleye it would be much appreciated. If anyone wants to meet up and tag team some fish let me know. I'l bring the brew.

Fished a little on Saturday and Sunday. Not much action in deeper water, but the shallow bite was better. Walleye in 8-14 FOW, minnow dead on the bottom was the best. Tried several areas, low light and rocky flats near deep water
