What lake are you going to be fishing?

My best luck on clear water lakes is early morning and night fishing. My favorite Walleye presentation in late June is a Lindy rig with a nightcrawlwer. I always shoot the crawler with a little air, so it floats. I also like to pull Rapalas (#7's) at dusk.

Good luck

Well,
I very rarely fish clear water lakes. But when fishing walleyes I preffer to drift or troll slowly with 1/4 ounce weight and spinners and or colored hooks on about a 2-3ft leed with leaches or minnows. I try to find break lines on the up wind sides of shallow ledges. I know fishing in the wind can be tough, but I think that's where the fish hang out. Just my 2 cents. wink smiley

they will be deeper during the day and shallower in the low light periods. How deep exactly will depend on the day, if there is cloud cover and some wind they might not be as deep as days with bright sun overhead and calm winds.

there is a rocky point that is about 4-5 ft deep and then drops off to 7-10 ft. do you think there is any fish there... remember its a really clear lake.

Middle Eau Claire is considered one of the best walleye spots out of that chain. They average around 16" with some going over 25". The lake is finicky when it is clear out. Try to fish any low light opportunities. Also try the edge of the 66' hole just north of the Eau Claire River. One thing to note... that is trophy muskie water. You might want to give that a wack. There was a 70 lb. muskie caught out of there in 1954...
