I always just catch them in my creek on mild days. Alewives would work too as will peanut gizzards but you won’t have much luck netting them at Philpott. Too deep. The walleyes are spitting up ales and gizzards in the winter.
I like jigging raps or similar. Black/chrome or chartreuse/white are my favorite colors. The action depends on the day and the fish you’re working…
Flukes and spoons also work. Again, depends on the day and the fish.
Big minnow style jerkbaits will also work, provided you can get them down to 15’ or so.
Live bait is always an excellent option.
I like to target them deep, Because I can see them on my sonar. But, I’ve found that there are still plenty of “shallow” walleyes through winter. Shallow could be considered 15-40’ depending on the weather trend. They aren’t all 60’+ deep.
Walleye populations aren’t as good now as they were a few years ago.
