Sarah Is generally a good spot to be on the opener but expect ALOT of traffic. When were out there we a usually pulling Shad Raps dragging them on the bottom.

Another method that has worked on opener has been a slow drift dragging a jig head tipped with a minnow. Slow is key. We have put the drift sock out before. But it really depends on wind in SW MN. Your best bet on plugs would be a number 5 shad rap on Sarah, and again, I cannot stress enough SLOW SLOW SLOW.

Not so much on the small for open water. But SLOW is key on opener. Come July you can speed troll!

I have not fished Minnesota for a couple of years so maybe this year I should try it again... Sara was always a good lake for me...

As said, go slow. I've found trolling #5 shad raps work well also. Sarah is a great lake for trolling. Later in the season you need to speed up the presentation, but not during opener.

Expect a LOT of boats joining you if you fish Sarah on the opener.
