Anyone fishing Walleye Opener on Spirit Lake/ Okaboji this weekend?

5 posts in this topic

Is anyone going to fish Spirit Lake this weekend for the opener? I plan on fishing Sat and Sun. Hopefully if it isn't a rain out! Fishing is usually great! I plan on drifting lindy rigs and jig and minnow near stoney point on Spirit Lake.

I'll be there. We'll be drifting crawlers, leaches, or minnows, or we'll be trolling cranks shallow or with leadcore out in the deep, or we'll be fishing below a lighted bobber at night near one of the shorelines. We might even do a little vertical jigging, tho the wind doesn't sound like that's going to be a possibility.

Guess we'll fish however the fish want us to. grin.gif

Good luck everyone!

I'll be in a blue Alumacraft Navigator with a 60 Yamaha. Give me a shout. Weather sounds like it is going to suck all weekend. Have you ever fished below the spillway on East Okaboji?

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.
