Open Water Season...

21 posts in this topic

Being that our open water season is not too far off, I'd thought you should all be the first to know that Tight Lines Guide Service is now taking reservations for the '08 season. I plan do some guiding for pre-spawn crappies but then following the walleye opener, well, you know what that means. Take some time to cruise around my website and then drop me a line. All of my contact information, including e-mail, is available on my website.

I look forward to spending time on the water with many of you this spring, summer and fall!

What about Muskie or Bass?

The main species I target are walleye, perch, crappie and bluegills. If you'd like me to recommend a bass or muskie guide in the area, please send me an e-mail. Thanks.

I know this is off topic, but in your experience when the pan fish move shallow do they do this to feed and then move back out deep or do they stay shallow.

He will tell you for a couple of C-notes - and when you think about it, that's money well spent if you want to get a feel for how fish work around this area.

I really should book a day with you. Maybe I'll use part of my "Economic Stimulus Check" on that...

CrappiesNCats maybe we could hit up Jamison together. I'm always eager to share a boat with new people. Especially come spring for crappies. We're all eager to hit the water.

There are many good lakes in the area to find great crappie fishing after ice out and up to spawning. Its seems that is always one of the times of year that I really hit the lakes hard is for the spring slab bite.

Watch the forums and you will see when the bite starts andd the hot baits being used.

Quit teasing - I have a boat that I purchased in the fall and then had to put into storage for the winter. All I got is 3 batteries in the basement and some pictures on my computer. I can't take it...

Maybe I'll just go shopping for a new locator for the bow..spending money on fishing always helps. LOL

Not teasing at all. The last few years I have had great crappie fishing for weeks.

Now this is a topic I've been waiting for, "OPEN WATER". I'm loving it.

I drove down to the Root river today just to see "OPEN WATER". I saw two Mosquitoes today. I'm pumped! Yea baby, bring it on!

Sorry about that. I'll try not to let happen again. Well not today anyway.

Shallow flats with black mud bottoms. Get some bugs hatching and game on baby let's rock and roll.

Sorry again. I guess i better go now.

See you on the water.

OK I'll try again.

If you can find the area that Crappies use to travel from the deep water to the shallows. As it gets dark and you are on the spot you can intercept them as they head deep for the night and have 5mins. or so of bang, bang, bang action. Have 2 rod ready becase they will be flying through and if you have to undo a tangle, well you loose.

But, I think you already know this.

T,O

I though I would throw in my 2 cents here and say; let's have the panfish get-together on German lake this year. The closer to the opener the better. Dynamite Gill fishing! Other wise the weeds get to thick untill the dye off.

Just my $.02.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Ha, fixed.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.
    • HugeHogChaser
      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?
    • HugeHogChaser
      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.
