Hello all

Need some info. Looking for the best and easiest lake in the Mankato area to fish opener. I am rather new to fishing for walleye and new to the area and my 8 year old daughter would like to get out with me for her first walleye. I do have a boat so any info would help a lot

thanks

Madison. Year in and year out, opening weekend on this lake is tough to beat. Deep water, large minnows and Lindy Rigs is the name of the game.

Hey Otter

When you say Lindy rig. Do you mean just a straight lindy rig with plain hook and lindy weight or do you mean lindy spinner and weight? Thanks for the info.

Yes, plain hook and egg sinker or Lindy weight. Whichever you prefer. 1/4 oz. weight is typically enough but go as light as you can and keep your snell lengths in the 2 - 4' range. Don't be afraid to use fluorocarbon for your snell.
