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 read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
