Color Does Makes A Difference
Even under the ice color still makes huge difference; whether it's walleyes or panfish. I always carry several colors of my jigs and lures on the ice.

Try Jigging Down - By lowering your rod slowly while jigging you can catch those fish that simply hold the jig versus striking it. Just watch your line for a slight bow while lowering and jigging, and then set the hook. Jigging lures should be dropped straight to the bottom and then jerked upward in a quick motion with the wrist allowing the lure to flutter to the bottom. Be alert at all times because most strikes come when the lure is sinking.
