Most walleye anglers do their best to get in on the early ice season. There's no doubt that on many inland waters, the first wave of early ice action is as good as it gets. But don't give up on "deep-freeze walleyes", they're still providing some great action for persistent anglers.
Just because it turns cold, doesn't mean that walleyes turn off. Often times, sub-zero temperatures also happen to coincide with extended periods of stability and stable weather is what fish love. Stable weather patterns are the key to a consistent bite. This is equally true for ice anglers looking to target walleye during the “DEEP FREEZE” months of January and February.
