My son and I put 23 walleyes in the freezer the past 4 days fishing hour and half a night.From shore no ice yet but good fishing  .

I liked northland airplane jigs until they changed them to be like a jigging rapala, How well do the walleye fliers work?

I  use this jig most of the time when ice fishing, I tip with a minnow and a lot of times I will leave the jig right on the bottom.With the design of these hooks,(hook is always up) hook percentage is very high and is always sitting the right way up.This is one of the best finesse or slow presentations I have found for walleye. If they are quite negative and hitting short, I just use the minnow head.When there aggressive then I go the chubby and the tingler or rocker minnow.

On any given day on the ice, once I find fish I'll generally run through this pattern:

1. Swedish Pimple -- silver with green sticker, about an inch long, yellow pimple in the top ring.
2. Buckshot Rattle Spoon -- 3/8 oz. superglo green with the white back.
3. Buckshot Rattle Spoon -- 1/4 oz. superglo red.
4. jigging rap -- small and perch or silver minnow colored.
5. Chubby Darter -- green and baitfish like.

If none of those in any variation of jigging triggers a strike (which doesn't happen that often), I'll move to a silver jiggawhopper with a four inch dropper to a small single hook and tail-hook a minnow below a light bobber and run as many holes as are legal.

Ok, heres mine.

1. Little Cleos
2. Buckshot Rattle Spoon
3. Small Croc. Spoon
4. Whistler Jigs, or Fireball Jigs w/live minnows
5. Cicadas

Never had much luck with pimples or jigging rapalas.  I do keep trying them as they are supposedly great for walleyes, I just haven't seen it yet for some reason, maybe I only try them when my other confidence lures aren't working, usually meaning the fishing is slow anyways and nothings working great.

I agree with you Master angler I find it tough to keep the fish centered in the hole with jigging raps Fire Ball man myself but have used all above hooks

We had 11 people up at lake of the woods last month and my old man schoolled us all.  We would even fish his hole when he moved and he would fish ours.  We had spoons, darters, demons, rockers, and pimples and he schoolled us with an orange fireball jig and minnow

Only Four,- as for size, that depends on the size of the average fish in the lake.
1. Swimming jig tipped with a shiner
2. Fire Tiger jigging Rapala
3. Chubby darter
4. Orange glow Rapala Shad.
If you don't catch them with these then F*** it and set up some tip-ups if you know they are there. :tipup:
