Now that it's getting cooler and cooler by the day...how would you change your tactics for fishing lakes before the ice starts to shut down boating?

My best luck for fall walleyes has always come when fishing minnows very slow.

In the warm months I'll troll large areas looking for the active fish but in the fall I'll spend more time picking apart likely spots.

For late fall walleye and crappie look for the steepest point dropping into the deepest hole in the lake. Fish with a jig and minnow or a lindy rig with a very short (less then 1 foot snell) and minnow. The jig will get you more bites usually but the lindy rig will catch bigger fish usually. Once the water temp drops below 40 always use a stinger hook on the jig. Fish vertically at the bottom of the break. Active fish will be at the bottom or slightly up the slope. Inactive fish will spread out in deeper water just out off the break. Late fall fishing is feast or famine. Once you find them they are generally feeding and schooled very tight. A few feet off the school can make a big difference.

We verticle fished today with T.H.E. Jig in 24 fow.The crappies and gills ran just off of the bottom to 14 feet down.
Coming up 1 crank at a time we tagged 150 fish in 2 days.
