Beebe for opener?

Recommended Posts

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.

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.
    • Borch
      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
