Ice conditions improve as colder temps arrive
By George Langley

Ice conditions have improved dramatically area­wide since the warm spell and rainy weather last week. Most North Woods lakes now have anywhere from 3 to 8 inches of ice, but there is always the exception to the rule. Use caution when heading out on the ice and always check ice thickness as you go.
Walleye action has been good to very good as they have been feeding very aggressively in the afternoons and evenings. Overcast days have been very productive, with action starting midafternoon and continuing until well after sunset. Anglers are having success using darters and jigging stick baits, along with consistent action on shiners and sucker minnows rigged under tip-ups. You will find these fish at many different depths depending on time of day and the particular lake you are fishing.
