Ice is good - several permanent and wheel houses on the big lake.  I'd stay away from Lower Clam (little clam unless you know it well.)  Folks have fallen through on foot in the far north-east area.  I've fished there many times in the past so something has changed there with regard to currents.  Did well on tip-ups last weekend - caught a bunch of pike and kept a couple for the smoker.  Good luck!

Heading to clam this weekend, are people driving on the lake?  thinking about pulling a house with, but don't want to bother if I can't use it.  Appreciate any help on this.

I hear you there.  We've been on Clam for 19 years.  It's a strange fishery in that it changes constantly.  I've seen too many guys take advantage of the good years and slaughter them (last spring watched one guy boat and kill 100+ bluegills off their beds in front of our place.  This year the walleye bite has been very good and those fishing them are taking them - which is legally OK.  Unfortunately there are those who take the privilege to the extreme.  Clam is not stocked, so the supply is finite based on reproduction habitat - which I might add is not much and constantly being destroyed by massive boats on a very shallow lake. I'd like the DNR to drop the limit even further on walleyes, but that's certainly not my call. Good luck out there!

Steelheader,

Best not jump to conclusions before you get all the facts.  Some people actually do their part for sustainable fishing, others not so much.

We catch and release all walleyes caught on Clam and take a few pike for smoking and pickling.  Otherwise, everything goes back.

I guess the way you keep posting how the walleye fishing is, you don't care if you only get a years worth of good fishing. Just thought I would throw that out there for your interest.

Yep, the northern population is really booming on the clam after a few years of not seeing too many.  We are catching pike during the day and just after dark we are getting a few walleyes.  Same presentation as you - small hooks with smaller shiners and clear fluorocarbon leader so the presentation is natural.  We had 50+ flags (all pike and a couple jumbo perch) last Saturday which was a lot of fun - and did manage a couple eyes after dark.

Any tips on presentation for the walleye? We mostly do shiners under a tipup but have only been getting northern and bass.

The walleye bite has actually been phenomenal we have been fishing in a very large group to catch all these. But it’s been constant. Lots of small ones as well.
