I’m not sure how I let this video slip under my radar screen last week. But when I stumbled into it yesterday, I realized that I better share it with anybody who might have missed it when it was originally released.
Most folks know how to find the “obvious” spots like points, rock piles and weed beds. But knowing the lesser obvious spots is one key to finding walleyes at times when they’re not on a hot bite.
I think this video really contains useful information about how to pick off an occasional walleye when you’re fishing in-between morning and evening prime time, low light feeding periods. The video is short, it only runs a few minutes, so join me for a quick peek.

"Factors such as depth, cone angle, battery life, size of lure used and even variances from lake to lake can affect how well your sonar is reading. Luckily, today's electronics have powerful settings to help dial in the ideal target separation to find fish and see your bait with little interference.
Grant Prokop of Thousand Lakes Sporting Goods demonstrates how to adjust the gain setting on Humminbird's ICE HELIX 7 to get the desired signal return on different sized lures or when searching for fish.
Grant prefers a small signal on lures to get the best target separation possible between the lure and fish. This has the added benefit of eliminating clutter in the water column. When searching for fish, Grant increases the gain to identify fish at greater distances and depths." View Video To Learn More >> Dial-in Your LCD Fish Finder Readout for Ice Fishing
