Well.. We fished the river south of the Z bridge in 15 - 22 FOW. Tossed everything at em but my tackle box. Started at 0830 next to empty shanties. Between 2 of us, we only managed 3 shorties by 3pm (needed minnows I guess ). Others started showing up around 2pm. I'm guessing the afternoon bite must be better. 1 on a jig with Gulp min and the other 2 on a grn/slv swedish pimple. Oh well, We will be back.

You guys were using minnow-less lures?

yes the minnows are the ticket. Not saying you cant catch a walleye of a minnowless lure but you will catch ALOT more with them

Just about everyone ive heard that has used those dont have to much luck. Ive had decent luck with the night crawlers from gulp in the summer time when trolling harnesses however have not tried any of their products through the ice. Good luck to you in the future

use half a minnow on the trebble of a jigging rap and you will have a LOT more hits and catch a lot more fish too. Only ever had luck with the gulp in the summer on a drop shot rig, its deadly for walleyes and smallmouth

The party store to the west of the launch in Zilwauke has minnows, I was out there last night and caught the usual 25-30 eyes, biggest being 14 1/2", good luck with your future trips
