Well just checked NOAA.Org and the weather there says slight chance of raind Fri Sat and Sun. Suppose that means we are gonna get nice and damp, probably see some snow, and at least a 40mph wind.

Just what the DR ordered.

Have no fear, my Brothers. My sources tell me that we will have good weather for the opener and not much for wind. Most of the TV news and internet sites are saying the same thing.

Some are saying poor weather with wind and rain. So do we go with the majority or stick with the negative people?

Yeah -- hope for the best but assume for gale-force wind and periods of snow crazy.gifcrazy.gifwink.gif

It doens't seem to me that I have ever had a nice opener, well not in the last 4 or so years, I think thats just what it's like all the time, usually the next day is nice, kinda like the crappy weather is tradition.. Oh well fishing is fishing.

I prefer the crappy weather on opener it protects the resource as the 612ers do not fish as much and then I go during the week and have the lake practically to myself.

Dear Lord let it be cold, rainy and windy all weekend. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
