How to? Walleye through ice?

Thinking about trying ice fishing for walleye possibly this coming weekend. Been somewhat successful catching them at this particular reservoir in Idaho in open water, but never tried ice fishing for Walleye.
Wondering if anyone could give me some tips for how to fish walleye through the ice. Is it any different than fishing for trout or kokanee or perch? By the way, no live miinnows allowed in Idaho.

Get yourself some weighted jig heads and just bump a 3-4" grub off the bottom...try chartruse colors and white...that always worked for me when I lived in Indiana. One time I caught a 7 lb wally using the tactics I mentioned above

I like Swedish Pimples, Do-Jiggers, and Jigging Raps. Maybe try tipping them with Berkly Gulp since you can't use live bait? Just like Scott said above, bump them off bottom. I've had good luck fishing weed edges (if still alive) and shallow flats close to deeper water.

Thanks for all the tips. I will be able to try all of them (well maybe not the gulp, too expesive for me, but excellent idea). We are allowed 5 holes and 5 poles here in Idaho. One of the ways I catch them in the non-ice months on this particular reservoir is like fishing for the smallmouth bass that exist in the same reservoir. Basically, I throw a curly tail grub to the rocky bank and retrieve and most of the time that I catch one it is a smallie and sometimes it is a walleye.
Not sure if I am going walleye ice fishing this coming weekend; depends on the weather. This particular reservoir is over 100 miles away. If i go i will report accordingly.

Did not make it to try for walleye this weekend. Went for kokanee at another reservoir. My brother caught 1 nice one and I caught 1 little one. Slow day; nevetheless it was a nice day. Once i get out to try for the walleye, I will update again.

we buy icicles or suckers at the bait store, bait here got severely regulated this year because of a virus. All bait must be certified with proof of purchase on the bank or in the boat. Can.t trap your own bait anymore and the price went up considerably.

I'm in NY, but I don't like to admit it. Icicles? You got me there. Is that shiners or smelt?

I fish mostly (not lately) for northerns in Chippewa Bay on the St. Lawrence and Henderson Bay and Sackets Harbor in Lake Ontario. I used to spend a lot of weekends at Oneida Lake for walleye and jack perch.

Born and raised here. The LostRebel is from living in NY, but wishing the state was more like the south. Long story.
