This has to be the worst time of the year . Especially this year with the weather being so mild . Repairs to my boat will be completed when I put the rebuilt prop back on . Upgrades are done . Tackle has been checked , organized & re-organized then rechecked . Now its wait .. wait & wait . Might just have to head to the Rainy @ ice out for Walleyes .

Muskycrazy I am right there with you. Brother was out on Lake Superior today with a alright catch, myself I spent the past 2 days getting the boat ready for when I get back from Mexico. It will be time to hit it hard and I will be in no mood to be fiddling with gear.

It's time for the countdown as well, heck I might even go as far to say that open water should be climbing to the top and ice fishing gets put in snooze mode! grin.gif

With the early time change and the unseasonably warm spring this is going to be a long wait to opener. I'm still staring at 2 feet of ice. frown.gif

the guys that can get out to south and north dakota are lucky, I just can't find the time to make it. I am really looking forward to the south shore in late april trolling for trout and salmon, otherwise just an occasional trip to pool 2 or 4. Either way I'm chompin at the bit to get at those Winnie walleyes. As for checking lines, jigs, rigs, rapalas and devoting entire paychecks to gander mountain I don't know what else a guy can do to pass the time. confused.gif

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!
