Where to begin looking?
« on: Feb 17, 2021, 12:12 PM »
I have access to several unique lakes that have walleye in them.  The reason why I call them "unique" is because they are not very deep (25') & have little to no structure in them.  Basically, they are like a big sandy bowl of water.  There are a few areas with transitions & points, which I would think would be the best areas...but wanting to know if I should also focus on other areas during the winter?

What’s the forage base?  Points are always a good start. Any structure, wood, rock, bushes. It there’s not much then the structure could be real good.

You just described most of our South Dakota lakes. Walleye spend some time using structure, but they also spend time cruising flats feeding on Perch and other smaller fish. When I fish for Perch on flats I always catch Walleye when they swim through the area.
It seems to go from zero to hero all some have to do is lie.
