Need some advice

We are heading north up near Tofte next week & I'm wondering if I should bring the waders & fly rod (new to fly fishing) or if we should focus our efforts on inland lakes for walleye-

Thanks for any help you can provide!

I got out Saturday from prime time to about 10 p.m. Tried shiners, fatheads with jigs & spinners on all our winter hot spots- then I casted some shorelines where we have done well in the past- Completely blanked, not a bite from anything. Did anyone have success? Maybe things will improve when the water heats up a bit- I had 48 degrees on the lower lake-

I believe there is a special place in hell for thieves.

Yeah, personally I don't use Navionics- I have a Lakemaster chip in my Lowrance Elite 7 unit. Once I get in the general vicinity, all I need to do is clear off the snow & pour some water on top of the ice. The transducer reads depth without having to drill a bunch of holes.

BTW- I went out to the same spot again last night, had 3 lookers at prime time but nothing committed.

No doubt, my other son has a skid house out of Red Door on Mille Lacs & they have been struggling big time. We've caught more walleyes on Tonka this year. I have been doing pretty well in 26' plus FOW so that's why I thought this was going to be a bust. Navionics said 22 FOW when actually it was 15!

Yesterday my son went out on Tonka at 6 a.m. to what he thought would be a hump in~22 feet of water, dropping off pretty sharply on all sides. He set up, drilled his holes and at 7:30 the perch scattered & this tank hit. He proceeded to catch another around 24 inches, both were released. Guess where I set up last night? I caught a fat 20" walleye & a couple of rock bass.

Turns out all three fish were caught in 15 FOW two on sucker minnows, the big one on a jig/minnow head. The camera showed us being on a transition between dead/dormant milfoil laying on the bottom and rocks the size of softballs. This lake has some giant walleye!

It was between 4-5 inches but I was in a bay. I drove around looking for others but didn't see anyone on the main lower lake-

First time out, nice bite between 4:30 and 6:30! Several lookers as well. Shiners on a plain red hook in 24 FOW.

There were about 5 guys out on Carson's bay last night. I drive by it every day & there were pockets of open water out there 2 days ago- it's like walking through a mine field if you don't have a spud!
Be careful out there!
