Miltona for opener

3 posts in this topic

Wondering how deep to fish for walleyes on opener. Never fished Miltona this early in the year. Any ideas would be greatly appreaciated! Good luck to everyone. Thanks in advance.

Not going to be Miltona but a neighboring/similar lake (Ida) this weekend. First thing that comes to my mind is shallow at night. Pull plugs, cast plugs/jigs or slip bobber right up in 10' and less. Other then that all I can say is to try to key in off of the first break of a sand/rubble flat. If there is some new/old weeds around they can attract bait and hence walleyes. Jig and fathead/shiner or live bait rig with shiner or maybe leeches. For back up on opener, I'd have the crappie rods rigged and ready to search them out in the shallows.

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.

      Great fishing everywhere?  Please give me the resorts and depths of the great fishing as that will help me decide where to go.
