Border Opener? Who's ready?

14 posts in this topic

I can't believe no one has started a thread yet on the SD Border Opener yet on Big Stone or Traverse????? No takers. We are almost a month away right?

Who's in?

Ice fishing or boat?

I hope to be ready. I have an awful lot of work to do on my boat before she's seaworthy. Having said that, I'm shooting to be on the water catching crappies well before the border water opener.

I'll be there, but I'm far from ready. Last year was tough for our group on Big Stone. There were some pretty good storms out there during our stay. Nice weather is about all I'm hoping for this year.

i will be ready but there just might be ice on the lake.there is not a pressure ridge on the whole lake and there is 30 inches of ice.with little to no run off as of right now. if there is a year when there will be ice on for opener this will be the year.but if we get rain that can change things in a hurry.the ice fishing for walleyes on bigstone was bad most of the year so i am thinking the spring should be good

I plan on getting over there if the wind isnt blowing 30 mph out of the north west like it normally does. We are far from open water right now but things can change with a little rain and wind. I'll second the slow walleye bite this winter hopefully that means a good spring bite.

I've never fished Hendricks, much to my shame. However, I've been told it's a real nice lake but watch out for the glacial deposits (rocks).

I want you to know I am not being a smarty pants. It is in Hendricks. hehehehehehe, that is the truth. West of Marshall the town is Hendricks, by Ivanhoe. I wanted to make sure I put the disclamer first so you didn't think I was a smart alick.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.

      I've never used boards, what are the best boards to use with braid? I'll be using them on Superior and for eyes inland... I've heard the offshore ones need their clips upgraded to use with braid.

      Walleye, just make it look like you are fishing for crappies.

      Yup had my favorite sucker fishing spot get posted a couple years back, because of slobs...I'll never understand it.

      Trout! Although, I don't think there are too many (if any, at all?) trout streams in the Ely area.
