Ok i am making my first walleye trip may 24 a monday so i dont have to deal with weekend traffic. i am new to the area but am ready to fish. I would like to take my boat to a nice lake where i can jig for some eyes and maybe pull some cranks on leadcore. I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction of a lake to fish. An hour drive is fine by me. these are the counties that i have maps of the lakes for, carver, hennepin, dakota, scott, mcleod, wright. any advice would be greatly appreciated. I was thinking of maybe trying spring lake in scott county. any word on the eyes there. thanks everyone and goodluck during the opener.

Sounds like P2, P3, or P4 of the Mighty Mississippi is the place you need to go............

If you want walleyes that are both quality and quantity, that is the place to go..............................................................................................................................................................................

Let 'em go so they can grow!!!

Is it not safe to eat anyfish from the miss? Why do they not post some sort of toxic fish sign or something? Why does the dnr allow fishing on the Miss? Why am I not glowing in the dark from eating fish from the Miss yet? Maybe they are okay to eat.......

the people that think you can't or shouldn't eat fish from the mississippi should get the fish consumption booklet from the dnr and read it. they would be supprised to find that some of the lakes they fish are listed as one meal a month where as the mississippi down by redwing is listed as one meal a week.i've had a lot of people tell me they wouldn't eat a fish from the mississippi and when i ask them what lake they fish and look it up they are supprised when the lake they fish is worse then the mississippi.

Matix 10.. if your looking for an opener spot without the crowds .. the inner minneapolis lakes all can offer some decent fishing but are restricted to trolling motors(electric).

There are so many good walleye lakes within an hour of the cities .. I wouldnt know where to start. A wiser thing to do might be to check with various area bait shops after the opener and find out where people have been getting good results(current reports)...

You can take fish out of most any water safely. The things to pay attention to are that woman of child bearing years should not to fish too often and make sure you cut out the belly lining tissues. That tissue is what holds a lot of the pcb's and such. If you clean them well you should have no problems.

Yep those fish are very very bad for you! Stay away from the rivers, who knows what you can get from just touching the water BEWARE! Be afraid, BE VERY AFRAID! But if you see me down there don't worry, I will just be down there monitering things like Big G said!

Big-g and Rainman, What time are you guys serving the shore lunch on the river. I know we can't eat the fish from the river but i guess someone has become the taste testers.
lol

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
