  1. In the spirit of community service, I will post any water temp readings I have. Feel free to add whatever you have. Today was 57 to 61 on the wild west end.
  2. Heading up to upper bottle for the weekend on Thursday afternoon. Is there any tricks or presentations that excel better than others out there?? Any info would be greatly appreciated thanks...
  3. I dug this video out from last years openers. Same spot, same technique. The slot fish weren't in there this year like last year.. Check it out
  4. Went out this weekend for trout Saturday morning. 27 degrees and I had to thaw out the drain hole in my boat to thread in the plug. Was on the water at 4:45 and we were bundled up tight but it was cold going across the water. At one time the phone said it was 17 windchill. We fished till 1 pm, fishing was slow but managed 7 trout (20", 16, 4 12-14"). After a well deserved afternoon nap we went to try a lake by Perham that the girlfriend has a lake place on and we went out to a crappie hole well when we got there with no live bait and medium light/UL gear notice they are all walleye fishing. I didn't have any live bait so used a 2.5" gulp on a jig and was jigging that around on the break near shore. Few norts up shallow but when you got 11-16 fow they fish were actively chasing bait fish. I ended up getting a 17.5" eye, lost one right next to boat, and I hooked something that felt huge but with only 4 pound test I had to baby it and I lost it. Went out the next day same lake and northerns were crazy feeding up shallow and saw a few eyes being pulled out on lindy's on the breaks of the weeds with shinners. Everything was associated with standing cabbage. How was everyone else's opener?
  5. Anyone on here ever fish Lake Ponto near Backus? All I know about lake Ponto is it is a very deep clear lake.
  6. Did you get out? The fish were biting when the wind let you fish
  7. Trolling for walleyes and my son caught this muskie-just shy of 50". I took a picture that didn't show the whole fish, my buddy is holding the full length shot.
  8. So how did everyone do? Or did most stay home? What were water temps? I'm stuck at work all weekend and very curious!
  9. How has the opener been in the Blackduck area? Let us in on how the great open water season has started. Please share your opening week reports here. Good luck all!
  10. Anyone braving the Temps and heading to Tetonka tomorrow? Any prefered spots? At a cabin on north side near cannon river and looking for advice
  11. Well it's almost time....and we'll be hitting Mille Lacs again for the opener. Between the weather and the other "issues" with the lake, I don't expect there to be much traffic out there, but I'll be out at midnight tonight just like every year. If you get do happen to get out, let us know how you do!
  12. With the opener being tomorrow let us know how your opening day and week of fishing has gone. Let's get some talk going! Good luck to all! I will most likely be starting the season off on Fish Trap lake this year, maybe hitting Alex as well as the Mississippi.
  13. So where is everyone thinking of chasing walleyes? I am thinking Green or the Rum after dark, because I will trying to whack a turkey during the day time. Best of luck and be safe.
  14. No chatter about opener? With all of us up on Big Sandy and we don't even have a complaint? As much as I probably don't like the idea I did decide to join the crowd. I signed up for a HOST boat for the opener and was selected as a possibility. I will be in the running to take out someone from the Governor's party. I will not find out until tonight if its going to happen at a Host Meal. I will report back and let you know who is hopefully in my boat! Good luck out there and be safe with the wind!
  15. Where is everyone fishing for at the opener this year? What are you going for? If 'you want to share your reports, please do.
  16. Fishing Huntington on opener. Has anyone fished the new DNR access area where the mtn bikers park? It was a decent spot prior to the shoreline altercation...
  17. Hi,I am heading out Saturday morning to rush lake for eyes,but I have never fished the lake before.Any tips?Thanks
  18. So are the crappies spawning already do you think or are they just shallow for the warmth?
  19. Who is getting excited for Opener!? I sure am. I'll be getting up there around 3pm on Friday and possibly staying through Monday. How are the water temps looking on the East end, mid to high 50's yet? I have heard the water level is relatively high. Opener and the following weekend or two typically yields a good night bite off the dock. Using jerkbaits and lipless crankbaits for Walleye is something I never get sick of!
  20. Finally got my boat in the water for the summer. Sure was great being on the water again! Spent most of the day checking water temps. and looking for walleyes. Water temps. in Big Bay ranged from 51 degrees to 54.6 degrees depending upon where I was. Checked mostly deeper water as that is where i prefer to fish. Saw lots of walleyes in 27' to 36' of water! Should be a very good opener if we do not get a bad cold front on opening day! Cliff
  21. One week left before the Opener, how many of us are hitting the big muddy for opener? I will most likely be at Fish Trap on opener, I may hit the River in the evenings next weekend fishing a few traditional spring spots from shore. Good luck all.
  22. Does anyone fish here? Tried it a couple of times, not much luck except for a nice large mouth bass. What do you use to catch the fish and what fish are even in here? -Will
  23. Alright let's get some excitement started for opener!! With this spring and the fact the walleyes will be done spawning at least a couple weeks prior to opener I expect good things as far as fishing goes. Your river spawners will be out of the rivers and starting to feed along their trip to their summer hangouts. Your lake spawners will be spreading out across the flats they just laid their eggs on in search of the minnows trying to do the same. This means that I expect to find fish in just about every range from 2 - 3ft of water out to 12 - 14ft of water. Jigs and minnows as well as live bait rigs with minnows, leeches and maybe even a crawler will put fish in the boat. None the less I can hardly wait. I will however wait until sun up as I don't care to be on the water with those few that are always mixed in that partied their way to midnight before launching their boats. So be safe out there folks and have some fun!!
  24. I'll be fishing the red river this weekend from Saturday until Sunday for giant channel kitties. On the Minnesota side, where is the best public place to shorefish for one of these trophies? Also, what bait tends to work the best if you're not using cut bait? I'm looking for alternatives. Thank you guys!
