My cousin and I get one every year fishing for bass in spring/early summer.
Always mid-lake and north end, on weed bed edges, on crankbaits or lipless cranks.

My buddy caught a nice one ice fishing the south end last year, even though the season was nonexistent for me. He was watching channel cats on camera and a walleye came into view and grabbed his swedish pimple.

In the last 16 years I have probably spent close to 15,000 hours fishing Nimmy and not only have never caught an Eye have not seen one caught they are that rare. I still think I have a better chance of catching Nessie while fishing with Bigfoot than I have of catching the mythical Nimmy Eye.😁😁😁

Congrats on that beauty!

I've probably put in 50 hours strictly targeting walleye at that lake. Trolling cranks, crawler harnesses, jigs and minnows and vibes through the ice.
Nothing but catfish and bass

I caught 1 yearling walleye on a tip up.

When I was a preteen child I caught a few saugeye on minnows and bobbers.

With the catch rate for walleye at nimislia being almost nonexistent, I wonder why its still stocked?

Nimisila was the featured lake on the back page of Ohio outdoor news last week. They stated walleye recruitment at Nimi was 1/10 that of other stocked NEO lakes and walleye stocking was discontinued. I don’t remember the exact year. 2019 I think was the last year stocked.
Thanks
