Open Water

5 posts in this topic

It won't be long for some open water shore fishing as the bays and feeder creeks start to open. The little lake by my house has the open channels and they are breaking out into the lake. 60's are in the forecast and I am getting ready to make the conversion from hard water to open water.

This weekend I will be testing out the electronics, batteries, etc on the boat. Then the fun of rigging and putting new line on the combo's. Spend some time chasing pannies and then wait for the opener.

Yes !!!!

Some of us have been fishing open water all winter along the north shore of lake superior. It's cold but it beats staring at the vex.

I might try to take my boat out some time this week at a small lake in Eagan! shocked.gifcool.gifgrin.gif

It was already partially open and with 60's and even 70's I think it may be completely open soon. smile.gif

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
