Walleye / Bass question

Post By: Eyefishing      Posted: 7/30/2020 2:34:24 PM     Points: 1986    
Hey guys I have a question about walleye and bass location and time of year.
Ok so, I have a small spot that I ice fish on Boyd lake and catch a lot of smallies and once in a while a walleye. Today I fished the same spot and the walleye bite was awesome 7 eyes 1 sucker.
This spot is 19 fow and 26 to the south and falls off into 30 plus. Then to the north it drops off to 23 fow and stays flat for a ways. East and west stays 19 to 20 for about 20 yards maybe or less.
Ok my question is where do you guys think the walleye would move, deeper or shallower. I have probed around there while ice fishing but end up coming back to my small spot, it seems to be where the action is.
Any thoughts on this ???

My guess is that they are holding in that one spot because there is some food they like eating there.

Sounds like you found a good hump that's an ambush point for the predators.

Follow the food. Certain spots will produce most of the year, while others change as their food base moves. It' very possible you've stumbled across one of those spot that just hold fish! If you did, it could be your go to spot for years...or until someone else finds it!

chodeman, I think you might be right, I have caught a lot of different species around this spot. last week was a new one, catfish, and then this day was a sucker. I think I have caught just about every species in Boyd around this spot. I think I will start looking a little deeper for something they might hold on.
