Opener Help.....

4 posts in this topic

Hello Everyone- I'm looking for some suggestions/help as I plan my attack for opener. We do a friendly tourney out of the Sunny-Side Marina on opener (10-15 boats). A lot of the fish came-in North of Stillwater last year. With the low water, do you think I'm better off staying South & a little deeper? Are most people going to be jiggin or riggin? We do a fish fry and a social (Beer/Sodas) at Sunny-Side Marina area after fishing, and all are welcome!

Hard to say if the water stays high the walleyes will hang up there in the parts up nort. The southern channel(neck down)areas should hold fish, as they traditionally do.

If I could I'd fish north anyday, I do like the water high though to do that. Prescott could be on fire this opener? Long way from sunnyside, I know.

Keep Catchin'

Hey Turk, I hear another great 'help' for walleye on the Croix is to pick up a Limit Creek rod wink.gif

Howdy!

I fish the Croix on Opener every year - I find it very interesting. One area will be great one year and next to nothing the next year.

As far as rigging try vertical jigging for current areas and Lindy types in the sandy, non-current areas.

Make a Pie Chart of some areas and throw a dart or attach a pin & arrow and take 'er for a spin. grin.gif Half funny, half serious...

Good luck out there!!

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.

      Joe The DNR guy has a point.  There is a distinction between taxing the general population, and charging a fee (call it a tax if you want to) that only hits the folks that use the service.       So trout stamp money is used to provide trout fishing opportunities.   The trout stamp or fishing license isn't a tax since you choose to pay it in order to engage in the activity that the money provides.       They have a certain amount of money to spend to provide or enhance trout fishing opportunities.   Planting lake trout in a lake that already gets stream trout might not be a good use of that money.

      How often do you change out braided lines on your ice reels? Finally changed my out, not sure how long it has been on the reel or if needed to change it.
