Do you guys mind if I ask what kind of boats you have? I'd be curious to know in case I'm out on the water and I see any of you. Would like to put faces to names and say "hi" if I see ya out there.

I got a blue and white Warrior, dual counsol, wrap-around windshield and a merc on the back. My name's Eric.

Hope to see someone out there this year. I'll probably be fishing Washington and German (and maybe Jefferson).

My boat is a 1995 16' Lund Rebel (Red) with black 25hp Johnson. My buddys boat is a 17' Monark, Maroon and white. I hope to order a couple of FM decals and put one on my boat. Should be interesting to see how many people I run across during the year.

Hope to see someone this year. During the summer we will more than likely be out every night. I will be pulling it with a van untill about june then I get my new truck smile.gif.

I'm usually out there in my hunting boat. It is a tan boat with a green and tan camo motor. She's a 14'er with a 25 hp mariner. I'll either be with my 3 year old son Nicholas, or with my choc. lab Haley. Hope to see you guys on the water this summer. I'll usually be on Madison or Washington. Sometimes I'll hit the smaller lakes if it is a little too windy. Later, Paul

Hey, thanks for the replies fellas. I'll keep this info in my boat and if I see a boat that looks as decribed, I'll stop by and see who it is. Hopefully it's one of you and not someone completely different! (probably get a strange look if that happens) smile.gif

I see you're from New Ulm. You know a guy by the name of Justin Black? I work with him and he's originally from New Ulm. He went to school at MVL. Just curious.

Fish'n guy

I run a Lund 1800 Fisherman (2004) with 135hp Mercury Optimax consul and a Yamaha T-8 Kicker consul on the back.

On the bow I have a Minn Kota CoPilot 60lb thrust.

The main reason for this boat is because I use it for salomon fishing on Lake Michigan and that water can be pretty rough so the T-8 and deep hull are ideal for this situation as well as for walleye fishing in the open water months.

I usually fish Madison, Tetonka, Gorman, and Clear lake and where a camo budweiser hat!!! Although I am sure there are many others the look just like me grin.gif!!

GOOD FISHIN!!!!!!1

Hey basscatcher,

I'm on Tetonka only 3 or 4 times a year, including opener, I don't know why I fish opener there but it has sort of become a tradition for me so I do.

Feel absolutely free to shout at me!

I'm in a green and beige 21' Crestliner sportfish, you can't miss it because it's the only one with a silver 150 Mariner along with a black 15 Merc on the back! I've never seen that combo before on a Crestliner so I'm pretty easy to spot!

I also run an FM sticker on the back.

Yell or ram into me or whatever if you see me!

Bald Eagle

I have a 17ft Crestliner Fishhawk with a 115 Mercury Optimax. The boat is a 2001 with black paint and a tan interior. The motor is a 2004. The boat came with a 115 Johnson but unfortunately it was a lemon. So far the Opti has been great. They gave me the blue salt water version, so it's easy to spot. I have a 4ft black antenna for the marine band. The bow mount trolling motor is a 55lb Minnkota with Auto Pilot and Copilot. The motor works good, but it is only a 12 volt and I should have went with the 24. I'm hoping adding another battery will solve the problem.

You'll find me in a 1850 fishhawk with a 115 merc opti. Black boat. You can't miss me--I'm the one chasing my 5 and 7 year old from bow to stern. 75% Madison/25% pick a lake. Hope to see you all out there soon.

Someone needs to put a spreadsheet together for all this info or everyone should throw a FM decal on their boat...lol. My memory is not what it used to be so I will not remember most of the boats. I am ordering a decal and hope to have it on my boat by opener. If you guys see it give me a holler, unless I am hammering them, then make it a whisper...lol. I think it would be cool to meet you guys. I am usually looking for someone to fish with.

I live on Washington so on that lake you will see me in a 15' Forester with a 50hp Johnson. On the other area lakes you will catch me in a green 20' Ranger with a 225 Evinrude or a 17' black Tuffy Fish n' Ski with a 90hp Evinrude, usually running the shores and weed lines for bass and/or pike. My partner and I will be usually wearing Falcon gear and Reel Fishing and Tackle gear. The Ranger will have a Reel Fishing and Tackle sticker on it.

      no live ones that I know of just frozen ones. I heard the run started good than the rain came and dirty the river and moved em back out into the lake.
    • hookie
      got a nice batch last weekend for smoking. Larger ones.

      Brian, Under-bite = whitefish? I have not 'bled' my fish. What's your basic process? Thank you.
    • BrianF
      The size and color says 'whitefish', but the only way to tell for sure is if it had an under-bite to it's jaw - and that just isn't something this photo allows us to see very clearly.  In any case, nice fish!  Nice photo! Pat, question for you...ever 'bleed' your fish on the ice before bringing them in to fillet?  Make a world of difference in both the fillets you get and the mess the fish makes when cutting them up.  Maybe you bled this one in a different way from how I do it though.

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck
    • Walleychaser
      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early. 
    • eyeguy 54
      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...
