Opener - what the WI warden said

10 posts in this topic

I simply called the warden from the Baldwin Office and he said - "WI is going to honor MN opener", and that I as a WI resident (with a valid license) could fish the opener and NOT be ticketed. He also said that the "MN DNR and WI DNR are on the same page". So I'm fishing as I should be!

boy it sure would have been nice down there with out any green or gold packer fans, but then who would chase trophy sheephead. and the mooneye population would go unchecked and ruin the entire ecosystem, not to mention how mudpuppies and american eel would increase without you guys around to harvest them.

TRZ,

Are you having ice fishing withdrawls?

You can pick on the Packer fans as I'm a Vikes guy, but don't pick on the American eel they migrate all they way from the Gulf of Mexico!

i do miss the ice, i checked my journal and i got out over 60 times this winter. i can't wait for that multi species fun on the opener, i'm sure i'll get my fill of eyes and then hit the sunnies and crappies. probably get some pike too, last year on the opener i got 5, the most i have ever got in one trip. and trophy sheephead are always on the brain. hopefully there won't be too many weekend warroirs around to make things difficult.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
