Opener from 12am to 9am

4 posts in this topic

My opener plans just got a wrench thrown in them by the boss. I ussually start around 9am on opener and fish till dark. Now we will be fishing from midnight till 9am on Saturday morning.

What type of sturcture, depth, and presentations would you start with and how would they change as it gets light?

I prefer to troll cranks or pull spinner harnesses, but I am open to bobbers and drifting.

We plan on fishing the West or North Side.

Thanks!

Blackeagle: We must have the same boss! mad.gif My Opener plans have changed as well due to poor planning by the man. I'm pissed but I will be back up Mon-Thursday when everone is hopefully gone! grin.gif

I will be out at 12am depending on the weather. I think I will be doing 3 things. I will be working the tops of weeds with crankbaits, trolling crankbaits over shallow rock reefs and of course slip bobber and leeches. I have not mapped my night so not sure what i'll be doing at what time but that is what I will be doing.

I might save the bobbers until after 4am. We'll see.

Isn't the lake closed for night fishing for the first 3 weeks? Pretty sure you have to be off by 10 PM.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
