1.  First Drop down the hole or a good walleye bite going - Chubby Darter
2.  Fish showing up on the Darter but not racing up and smashing it - six inch dropper from the Darter or go right to the spoons ...
3.  Buck Shot
4.  Cleo and Pimple, use that red flapper on the pimples on your other spoons and swimbaits.
5.  Sometimes a Jigging Rap, just small wiggles constantly

I've been ice fishing for a couple of decades.  About 5 years ago I started experimenting with LARGER spoons and baits after seeing the size of forage in many walleye stomachs.  I really found a positive response from fish.

Don't forget the plain ol fireball jig with a plastic curly tail..sounds funny but my best is a orange fireball with a greenish colored curly tail........  I had friends laugh at me once when I was using one saying they only work in the summer...........5 minutes after they stopped laughing I popped out a nice 5 lb eye.....   Work excellent kicking up sand/silt on the bottom which always draws fish......

Try it you'll be surprised.......

The five best walleye lures out there from top to bottom from my experience are:

PK Spoon (has a pending catch and release world record walleye this season)
PK Flutter Fish
Rapala Jigging Rap
Swedish Pimple
Northland Buckshot Rattle Spoon

I carry a small box with those lures out on the ice and those are all I use. Most of the time I don't fish anything but the first two.

i also carry a small box with me with the jigging rap and pimple in it. just going through this thread it seems that a lot of the same jigs are used by everyone.  ;D

Pk's are the best. Way to support the local lure.  That walleye Pat caught was huge. Lake of the Woods would be so awesome to fish
