Turk

Opener

2 posts in this topic

Fished a lot of spots yesterday, saw no fish being caught for the most part, and I came to the conclusion it was going to be a tougher opener, and it was. On my guide trip we did manage nine legals and a 25" walleye was the biggest (released of course). No real secret worked crawlers all day for the catches, and stayed in the teens for depth.

The bite will be interesting this spring...

Keep catchin'

Got down to the river around 5am jumped around looking for the bite, managed to put some eyes in the boat at least, noticed that some of the eyes had redness around their tail area must of just finished spawning or something else is going on there! Graphed a nice group of eyes laying on the flat in 17 feet circled around, shut the big motor down dropped the electic and came over them, bang one, couple of minutes later bang another, then I had some gentlemen anchor over by my marker and it was over, couldn't find them any where, can't believe they spooked so easy, so I moved on guess it just wasn't ment to be, did alittle bottom bouncing managed a couple sheep, caught all but one on crawlers riggen, tip of the hat Turk, loved the rod. cool.gifcool.gif See you on the water!! cool.gif

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
