Back to winter, after a nice break during last week's thaw. With highs in the low 20's and daybreak temps hovering around the 10 degree mark, I'm much more inclined to hide out in the ice shanty, than chase chromers on the river. We have had enough cold weather to lock up the larger lakes, which means it's tip up time for walleyes! I setup on a point in 28 FOW, the same general area I target walleyes in the spring and summer. At first light the action was very fast, between two tip-ups and a jigging rod in the shanty. I landed 8 walleyes and missed a few additional flags. Most fish were running small, but it was good to have some hot fishing action on a brutal cold day!
