Opener plans?

Recommended Posts

Stick in Mud

Anyone planning to hit the Pond for opener this year?  Yes, I know we won't be able to keep any, but...well, it's tradition for us, and if the winter bite is any indication (and usually it is), the fishing will be *nuts* this year.

 

It'll be midnight for me, pulling cranks over weeds somewhere between Wealthwood and Malmo. :)

I'll be on Mille lacs either Sunday evening or Monday depending on if I can get any for the freezer out of Red Lake on Saturday. Both yesterday and today the lake looked inviting but she sure gets angry fast it seems when I am on the pond. I'll definitely be fishing it weekly this year up until the July closure, the fact that we cannot keep any there this year doesn't bother me so much, it's nostolgic for me since it's where I fished growing up.

I hear you, Kettle.  It's nostalgia for me, too.  At least that's a part of it.  The other part, like this winter, is that the lake has been absolutely on fire for, what, three years now?  All winter, guys drive six hours farther north to keep 8 12'' sauger.  Or five hours farther for three 16'' from Red.  Nah...I'll save the money in gas, buy myself a few steaks, and have more fun catching more and bigger fish.

 

Ok, so I'm a little overconfident.  We'll see how it plays out. Reports (good, bad, or indifferent) to follow.

Not sure if it is just a small hatch or the beginning of one but had a few mayflies on my pickup windshield today on the south side of the lake.  I've had great days catching walleyes during a hatch and terrible ones so it doesn't much change my plans.

Yep, add a few minutes to that and it's how long to wait until you catch your first walleye of the year. :)
