Big or Little Cormorant for Opener

4 posts in this topic

Does anybody fish either early in the season? I would imagine the answer is yes but does anybody have a preference? I have fished Little Cormorant several times in the summer while up at college in Fargo. We had good success for walters and rock bass if I remember correctly.

Thanks.

of all the years I have fished it for opener i have never caught a walleye. Always a great july/august lake but heck if I can find them during opener.

I know guys who have done excellent on Big C on opener. There are a few things you have to do and boat control is by far the most important.

Shae is right but don't forget about the eye and crappie population of both Little and Upper. I think people would be surprised by how good of lakes those two can be.

If you want less pressure and similar results I would look at Little or Upper.

Good Luck -- post your luck.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
