can one of the moderators have a poll of some of the top lakes in the area? don't know how things work like that or not but would be cool to keep a running tally. Opener for me used to be best when I went fishing on the otter tail river and seems like had better luck and didn't need the boat. Opener is just over done seems like. would rather fish a few weeks into it when it aint so dang cold or windy or rainy.

Coin toss between Pelican, ten mile, Lac Qui Parle, Sallie, Mellisa, Star, rush, Otttertail or Big Commorant. I will be at one or all or most during the weekend of openr.

My buddies and I are still on for Mille Lacs... Hope the waves aren't a flyin. May in MN, based on my past 4 years of living here now, leads me to believe that it will be the typical 25 mph wind, 42 degree day with rain showers... smile.gif

Ummmm ... Yeah ... Paul ... Yeah ...

I will see you on Pelican, my Brother.

You know you will be there.

May hit Upper or Ottertail, but I doubt it.

Blueberry for me, then maybe Marion or Melissa. At night, I'll hit the shore and fish on foot at some good spots.

Unless these 40 mph wind gusts keep up, I'll be out on East Silent trying the night bite on Sat. I've never been there before so not sure what to really expect. If that doesn't pan out I'll likely be over on one of the Pines, Big C or maybe even Little Mac. Hmm...thinking about this makes me realize I haven't opened on Buffalo for a looong time. That used to be good too.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      I never made it out Monday was too tired from fishing Friday - sunday didn't feel like getting up early

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
