How deep do you think the walleye will be for opener around here? Thanks

Boy, it's hard to say with this screwed up weather we've had. I'm going to start by trolling/ throwing some cranks along the outside weed edges, and if nothing happens there I would probably try to hit the 15-20 ft drops with some live rigs to see if they're hanging out there. Good Luck whatever you do!

I had my heart set on casting and trolling cranks also.. with the forecast, I think that will be pretty short lived.. If I'm out at midnight, I will be willing to bet I will be verticle jigging, or live bait rigs off the first drop.. maybe the 2nd.. hard to say what is going to happen with this cold snap we are sitting in right now.

Anyone feel like beating up the weather man?

It's quite possible that I may change my approach and fish for walleye around the warmest part of the day. In the pat during early season, day break outings have not produced much. However, on occasion, I've stayed later (11-2) and caught a mid day bite.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
