Try fishing the same locations that you might catch walleyes at. Take ATV, 2 anglers, drill 50 holes per spot in a grid,  and if you don't mark any fish move to another spot. Continue to "ice troll" for the whole day. We have drilled upwards of 200 holes on Glendo in a day. It's not hard to figure out where Trogdor, 3lungs, and I had been fishing. During certain times of the season we would mark many fish, but could not get them to bite anything. You will run into that for certain.
So many fish, so little time.
