Beebe for opener?

10 posts in this topic

Anyone fishing Beebe for opener? If so, what tactics and depths work well? Does Buffalo get crazy/crowded on opener?

Stay away from Buffalo on opener! I usually try to stay away from there for at least a few weeks within opener! I tried that last year & it was nuts! Almost as bad as ice fishing there. Beebe doesn't have too big of a parking lot, but I think that there is a guy down the road that will let you park in his lot, for a small fee that is.

Hoggs...thanks for the heads-up! I kinda figured Buffalo would be like that. Anyone fishing Beebe for opener? I am planning to head up toward the St. Cloud area early opening morning, but if the weather doesn't cooperate, I would like to hit something a little closer to home.

The bite is never good during opener, because of all the commotion (i.e; boats powering up away from landings, boats piling up on supposed "hot spots" and then speeding away, lots of inexperienced and "twice-a-year" boaters, etc.)...

I just skip opening weekend. The fish will still be there the following week...besides, there's plenty of yard work to be done until the "wanna-be's" are off the lakes...

Sounds like a little bitterness towards the opener crowd eh'?

No doubt, it can be a pain for traffic purposes.

I don't tend to skip opener, yet insist on siezing it as an opportunity to seek out low traffic lakes and find new spots.

So far, its opened my eyes to alot of little gems, that for some reason, nobody knows about.

Thank you opener madness, for I have a few more lakes in my pocket to go catch some slabs when I just want to be "alone".

Backherup Hit the nail on the head big time. Opener and for about 2 weeks you get the first time boat owners out there.

They buy a 21' boat pull it with a newe caddie suv. Just so they can drive thier new boat into yours. And never say sorry or anything. Seen this happen every year. Sometimes 4 or more times in 1 day. They don't have a Clue as to what to do.

1.They more practice it less busy ramps.

2.They could hire someone to show them what to do before, during and after luanching the boat.

3. Practice back the boat at a school parking lot.

Well geez, Duane...at least I have a boat!grin.gif

Maybe working 60-70 hours a week has a little to do with the fact I can no longer fish as much as I once did...family comes first...

I was on Beebe on Saturday morning. That only lasted about 2 hours. I got 1 small sunnie on the line & that was it. I mainly wanted to get out & get the boat running for the first time this year. Then it started snowing. I then called it a day. Water temp was only 48-49 degrees.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
