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.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
