Walleye Opener

3 posts in this topic

Many a thread has been posted in years past regarding the St. Louis & camping etc...

THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM!

I personally LOVE the Reservoir lakes near Duluth & fish them throughout the summer. Usually I would fish in the Ely Area on opener, however not this year...

What tactics are invaluable for the Reservoir lakes as the post spawn walleye fishing begins.

i.e.. How would you go after them in the Cloquet Chain??

Happy Walleye Opener where ever you are! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif & MAny Good Returns! grin.gif

Jig n minnow and troling crawler rigs. Once you find a fishy spot its a lot of fun to slip bobber a hook n minnow or leech if waters warm enough.

If you try trolling cranks/sticks make sure you stick to something with a tight wobble like a floating rap or bomber. Once the waters warm then you can get to a more "agressive" crank that has a bigger wobble like a jointed shad rap.

Oh and theres always the lindy rig.

I totally agree. early spring - jig n' minnow. mid summer -slip bobber and leech. Late summer troll crawler harness. It's what i do year after year!

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?

      Oohhh, I'll tell you what folks, it is just a beautiful day to be in the northland!!!   Heard that one a time or two.   Classic Country Sunday, the opening 15 minutes were the best.
