How many of you guys open bass season on the Ole Miss?

10 posts in this topic

Well, since I am going stir crazy(as well as a bunch of my buds), I am already thinking open water.

There is always a lot of chat around bass opener as it comes around, but I am just curious how many of you out there hit the Upper Miss for your inaugural bass casts for the season?

What areas do you guys like to hit? Not looking for ANY specifics. Just curious how dispersed people are, or if everyone hits a couple areas.

I know me and "the boyz" are seeming to be getting a bit over anxious and even stressed just waiting for open water.

I'll be in the Boundary Waters for opener but can't wait to hit it the week after, I'm getting a kayak for it this year so I have lots of exploring to do!

I get home from Alaska on Memorial day, so I may not be able to make it out for the bass opener, which will be a first in many years for me. But I will be out my first opporunity upon getting home.

What is the first lure everyone is going to throw in the water for the bass opener?

It depends on the water level, but for the first of the bass openers I'm heading up nort on a lake. (Why does the bass season open earlier up nort I dunno) Then for the opener down here I'll prolly hit the sippi. I'll prolly toss crankbaits first, but we'll see.

I don't know where Im going, depends on the weather, might go to a little wright county lake and see if the spawn is on, if not will probably be on the river somewhere. My first cast will probably be a jig and pig either way. Hopefully the waters high and muddy on the river by then grin.gif

      I'm looking for the best and cheapest place to get a 30 pound propane tank filled. Seems like all I can find are exchanges for 20 pounders.
