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.

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.

       Flooded,  inlet valve is not seating from being warn,  debris in the valve, or improper metering lever height. The later is what I would suspect since you've already had the carb apart.  The meter lever is the link from metering gasket to the inlet valve. This controls the flow of fuel.  That adjustment is normally level with the floor of the carb body.   An incorrect setting will allow fuel to freely flow into the carb with engine off. Or it can starve for fuel not allowing enough fuel into the carb.
