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!!

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
