Opener

8 posts in this topic

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.

      Snuffy's Landing area on the Mississippi just North of Becker has always be good. Otherwise the Elk river hold some nice ones.

      My trophy would be the walleye, mainly because it is what I target but I have to admit hooking a 21" small mouth would be a fun battle.

      So I saw this question posed elsewhere, and thought it was a fun one to get people talking as we wait for open water season.   Which trophy fish do you have on Vermilion?  Which do you want the most?  And why?   A- 30" Walleye B- 21" Smallie C- 40" Pike D- 50" Muskie   My goal is a 21"+ smallie.  I got a 20.5" last summer, which is 1/2" shy of Master Angler quality in Minnesota.  Why?  Because I can't get so close and not ultimately achieve the goal.  The 21" smallie on Vermilion is now my white whale.
