Lesser Slave Lake in Alberta is known for great walleye fishing and this was my first experience on the lake during the hard water season. Supposedly 90 % of the fish spawn in the river running into the west side of the lake. Since we were fishing the first week of March and spring was coming it seemed like the West side of the lake would be an obvious choice to try. We drove onto the lake and noticed a line of ice huts. We picke a location and drilled some holes and noted these shacks were not on any structure. So we drilled towards shore until we found to drop off from 30 feet of water up to 10 feet. As soon as we got onto the drop we started to nail the walleye. They were very concentrated in this location and the action was steady for the first few hours. It tapered off later during the day but we continued to catch walleye, pike and tulibee. In the afternoon we tried our deeper holes near the ice hut depth and ended up catching a couple nice perch and more walleye. What a great day for our first time ice fishing the lake.
