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

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
