Now you're talking. The best pastime in winter is looking forward to the opener.

I can't wait! Everytime Walleye Closes I feel dead inside until Ice Out.

****

I always take March off from fishing just to build up a good fervor in my soul for open water.

To Make matters worse my schedule made it impossible to get out onto the ice in the last 5 weeks... So I'm already frothing at the mouth...

Just 37 days till ice out on the lake near my house!

Less than that if you count the Rainy River in March and April. Is the Rainy the opener or closer?

Nothing short of pitching Musky Lures in heat so opressive that I'm forced to wear a speedo, cowboy hat and hiking boots will satisfy me!

If you want to subside this withdrawl feeling, hit up pool 2 on the Mississippi, I am going today actually. Walleyes are open year 'round (can't keep 'em obviously) and they are huge pigs there.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
