Brad Laabs: When walleyes go away, pan fish are OK
We have arrived at the time of our ice fishing season when the walleye activity typically slows down but the pan fish activity remains steady. That is not to say you can’t catch walleyes now — you can — but the bite has changed and lacks the consistency of the earlier ice season. This dip in the catch rate will also occur around this calendar period on some of the famous walleye ice bite lakes around the state, like Lake of the Woods, Red, Winni, and Mille Lacs.
