Nice Dick , gotta do that .Walleyes taste great and through the ice even better I bet!

John I have caught them through the ice on ice jigs tipped with waxies. Of coarse that was when I was fishing Lake Erie which has been a long while.

Dick-I 've caught them on Beaded Nymphs, Shad Raps , Rapalas, a Keitech easy Shiner and now Jig Spin . I am anxious to try out some Crawler harnesses on the ones in a nearby lake .

 Allen, Carl, Dick -Ever catch them through the ice ? That I'd like to do!

Allen when you do post pics here please I'd like to see those Jigs!

I've been meaning to tie some egg-sucking leech flies and jigs.  Especially the jigs.  Just cast one out, under a float, in water with just a little bit of wave action, and let the waves work the jig :)

One thing about Walleyes they take a wide variety of baits and if you can put some meat on it it just increases your chances.

I need to find more dams at the headwaters of rivers that have Walleyes .This guy was right up in the rapids of a small river kissed up to the dam as far as he could swim .18,1/4 " .Took a small Spin Jig /Orange Southern Pro tube .Nice 4# UL catch .

"Water temperature plays a key role. Even here, ideal temperatures vary by latitude. Southern walleyes prefer spawning temperatures between 48°F and 50°F, while their Yankee cousins and Canadian counterparts favor temperatures between 44°F and 48°F."

I 've been reading 45 degrees at my feet from shore .
