15 posts in this topic

Just curious where all you guys are gonna be on opener. If I were coming home i would either be on Belle Taine or Potato. However I will be in Duluth fishing for Steelhead.

Palmer lake,

Seems that we always do well on opener, we have never had a bad year on Palmer, Parents have a cabin on the lake and I've seen some nice eyes make it into the livewell

Eagle lake and hopefully Potato if the creek is up enough to get the boat through this year. Last fall was the lowest I've ever seen it.

Might you have some advice for Belle taine during the first full week of June? We will be up for vacation and would like to get into some walleye.

Shell Lake for me. Anyone know if the ice is out on Shell yet? Can't wait to get up there.

Big Trout by Cross Lake, the water is going to be cold so may as well go for the cold water fish LAKERS, but Palmer or Bueberry are good openers they warm fairly fast.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
