Walleye in cold water respond to finely tuned suspending jerk baits! Tune them at the lake with sticky weights until neutral buoyancy is achieved! The fine details produce results, catch or skunk. Fish require a long pause with small twitch or movement of the lure to react. Surprisingly some fish respond to rather aggressive presentations.

Hawaiian Pu nch, definitely interested man. Im off 470 and smokey hill so im always down to pitch gas and food. Had one small strike on a floating worm around from the handicap dock. Either finicky walleye or a tiny perch. South Platte ponds didnt provide much but some waterfowl antics. Guess its wait for ice and hit it with minnows

Thanks to Neyet for the tips on cold water eyes. You are the man when it comes to those bigger eyes.

Ratherbefishing can you ice fish the south platte park ponds? I fish there for bass and trout occasionally, but never with much luck...

I was there on Sunday and caught quite a few yellow perch at pond #1. I was on the east side of the pond near what I believe was a underwater weed bed.

I tried several lures hoping for trout. I tried jigs of various colors, and then went to honey worms hoping for perch but I had no luck with any of those presentations.

Finally, I went to nightcrawlers using the old slip sinker method. That did the trick. The bites continued non-stop for several hours then slowed down after 1 pm.

The yellow perch I was catching averaged 4-8 inches in length but they did put up a good fight.
