Boundary Waters Fishing Opener

5 posts in this topic

Just wondering who is all fishing in the BWCA for the fishing opener and what their plan of action was for catching fish during this time of year?

I'll be on the chain also.

Points and rocks piles in the evening casting jigs tipped with a chub. During the day I'll work the first break along shorelines. How deep and what shorelines will depend on wind direction and temps. If its warm I'll be tight, if theres a cold snap I'll drop into deeper water. Whatever the case I'll be working slow whether it be a jig, minnow harness or lindy type rig. Key thing is to move till you get something going. Use those daylight hours to find that evening spot.

headed up to IRon with the same group of guys since 2000. This will be our third trip to Iron and my fifth. MY fav lake and next to my sec fav lake, Crooked. Cold weather, deeper. Warm stable weather, shallow, but always use the wind to you advantage.

My wife and I just inked a deal for a cabin on the White Iron chain. We close around the opener. I'm really looking forward to exploring new waters. Any advice or warnings for newcomers?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.
