I am determined to get after walleye through the ice this season, does anyone have any tips to share? Through doing research and watching videos it seems early and late ice are most productive for walleyes, does this pattern hold true in Colorado? Thanks in advance.
As my father would say . . . ."Do your homework" Eyes through the ice are a tough one here in CO,but once you figguer them out . . .fun . . .fun! I'll be out there this yr. putting in my study hrs too!Keep in touch when the ice gets here . . .we can compaire notes.
There are a few guys on here, like Rod Bender and a couple of others that have metro eyes dialed in through the ice. Hoping they invite me along this year, I really want to get into some eyes through the ice!
I’m pretty sure Goose has them dialed in as well, but he keeps it a secret, says he’s all about Lakers and other species of trout through the ice -)
This Saturday nate z is doing a walleye seminar at bass pro shop Stapleton. I've found one of the best way to learn is to talk to the pros. No matter what practice is the only way to get them but the knowledge you can get at these types of seminars can save you a lot of time, money and effort.

Thanks for all the replies, I have put a lot of time in on the Jiggin Raps between ice last year and trying to catch fall eyes at Chatfield up until it closed to boating. Great lure I just can't seem to catch a fish on it. Like others I am dying for ice. I think I have some good ammo as far as knowledge from the research I have been doing, just need ice! Good luck this season everybody!

Minnow heads with a bit of guts hanging down works. Change them often, keep the scent fresh. Put it on a fluorescent chatruese jig head. BUT a Lake with walleyes (lots of walleyes) is the most important thing.
Drop offs in the morning and evening, remaining weed beds too. FLats during late ice, shallows on early ice.
