Thanks guys. It was nice to be around all those new boats and talk some serious walleye fishing during the seminars. It has been a long, cold winter. Like everyone else, I'm counting the days in anticipation of open water.

Randy, I checked on the computer when I got home, and you were right in regard to the dates we were both at Mobridge last year. The tourney I fished was May 16-18 and I arrived May 9 for prefishing. Going a week later this year would be a good idea because it typically isn't as good that time of year as it was last year, but the smelt ran early. Typically at that time you can be right in the midst of a major smelt run in that stretch of Oahe.

Those are some good memories, and this year there should be a pile of 21-22 inch walleyes that are really plump. I'll be out there two weeks later this year prefishing another tourney.

Tightlines.

Corey,

Yup, I got home and looked back too. My license was a 3 dayer for May 11, 12 and 13. HA HA... Great minds think alike.

Looks like we'll be out there the first week of June.

Randy

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
