Troutin Opener (3 pics)

3 posts in this topic

Andy (RugbyGuy) and I did the trout opener again this year. Or morning was nothing short of fantastic. The brown trout were tearing up most everything that hit the water. Natural colors were preferred, but not required. The rainbow trout pattern produced lots of fish.

7 doubles today where we both had fish in hand. Many more close calls. We each had a few back to back casts/fish. Many more close calls. Our big fish went 14” with the majority of our fish 10-12”. We took 8 fish 9-12” home for a meal and were basically only keeping fish that were deep hooked. Andy grilled the fish for us and our wives on Sunday and it was incredible.

The fishing slowed around 10:00 and really shut down at 11:00. Just to give you an idea, we still caught a dozen fish or so from 11:00-1:00. Before the high sun, we found fish scattered and caught fish in deep and shallow water. Riffles, eddies, and slack water all had fish in the morning. Around 10:30ish the fish tended to migrate to deeper water (or shaded) and become less active.

Oh yeah, the weater went from freezing the guides, line, hands, reels, etc to blazing hot and soaking from sweat. All part of fishing in the great state of MN.

This one had a cool looking top fin between the dorsal and tail. It had a unique red pattern.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
