Opener

Last year during opener I was fishing in Madison Lake off shore and didn't catch a thing so this year if I am fishing from shore does anyone have any suggestions for a lake that will give me a chance at some eyes? Thanks.

SLIP BOBBERS ON CANNON BY BRIDGE TO WELLS COULD WORK FOR YA.... OR BRIDGE BY TETONKA SWIMMING BEACH WITH RAPALAS

Find an inlet/outlet or some moving water somewhere and you should be good to go.

how early are you arriving? being from AL there are several spots to fish walleyes (with success) from shore. i have actually had much better luck with them from shore than in the boat.

Any lake in the area where you can find something that creates current. And i mean any lake with walleyes this will work.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have fished Fountain Lake and when I lived in Austin, the lakes there and the river but I think I will probably go east of Mankato. I will probably try Tetonka and then hit a couple lakes on my way home...I guess I have some time to figure it out.

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      3" on west hunter in Zimmerman 15yds from shore.  Lakes talking a lot today. Keep in mind the lake is only 8' deep   A dozen trucks/cars at Baxter last evening when I drove by

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
