Out with lake nipissing ice charter, really great outfitter. Unfortunately between the 4 of us we've caught 2 walleye (14") and 2 perch, since yesterday.

Marks are hard to come by.

Walked around 1.5 km this morning looking for activity, not finding much.

How's everyone else doing out here?

Bout to head out and go on another scouting trip in the opposite direction.

I think we have tried everything, have tip ups out at various depths. Have a mix of some minnows, liples cranks baits, buck shots, jigging raps, etc

That is tough, because weather etc looks great.

do not know your depth, but I would be going back to basics and running a single minnow with a split shot for the afternoon bite.

I have never had to move, but if not marking, your shoal location may have dried up. hopefully, that is not the case.

how are others doing in your vicinity /

X2 what Longshank said...

Back to basics and finese fishing..

Try this, one line on a sensitive ultralight rod or spring tip, hook a minnow through the skin on its back wth a small hook, split shot 1 ft up. Drop down and set minnow 6 inches to 1 ft off bottom. Leave it there.

Now setup another rod with a small flash spoon, williams etc, use a hole about 3 feet away, drop this down and jig the spoon about 1 to 3 feet off bottom, not too eratic. Setup a flasher on this line, once you call in a fish ie see a mark. Stop jigging and move to your minnow line. Slowly jig this minnow line once or twice to get the minnow swimming and leave it again, wait for the hit.. Never fails . Good Luck.

Post a picture here of the fish.. So I can see the victim of this trickery.. LOL

X2 Love it! Also, if you aren’t getting results, try an ultra loud rattle bait (Clackin’ raps are my fav) and see if that vibration calls in fish from a distance and the set line closes the deal. Keep us posted on the bite! Tight lines!

Two of the largest Williams on one split ring and no hooks for the flasher rod to bring them in. Jig them hard....make noise and make flash.....bring them in.

Thanks for the tips!

I have been going around with a lipless crankbait just to try to get some marks, we are on a biig flat I walked 1.5 km in one direction and the depth did not change.

It's funny I tried something like that this morning, went to move over to my light rod and the fish kept going up to my lipless crankbait and just demolished it 8ft from off bottom and didn't hesitate Just to make sure we had no idea what they would want lol!

We are trying to make sure we are covering all the options. Even the jaw jacker has had minnows in it all weekend and usually shines with light bites, has not gone off once yet.

Sounds like you've got the bases covered. If you're not marking, all you can do is try and call them in, move or wait. A little chum never hurts but don't go overboard with it. What depth are the huts in?
