As I sit here at work at my desk surfing the fishing web sites all I want to do is for it to be friday! I know it is 80 and sunny today and it will be 55 and cloudy all weekend but I just CAN'T WAIT! I WANNA GO FISHING! I WANNA GO FISHING! (The voice in my head is yelling) Breaking out in a cold sweat now. Getting the shakes, I need it bad. The guys in the shop just laugh at me cause they know I don't care about anything but fishing right now. I have to till the garden tonight. till...tiller...backtrolling...AAAAHHHHH! Can't think. Need to consentrate...concentrate on FISHING!!!!!!!

Well overdalimit, you should be having a sleepless night counting walleye trying to get to sleep with the excitement of the opener just hours away. I envy you, as I have to keep this fever in check for another 4 wks, you can only clean the boat, check the supply list and test the motor so many times. I will be heading to Lake erie this weekend to hold me over, but its just not the same as the scenery and relaxation the Kab/Nam bring to the table. Good luck this weekend and be safe.

I know the feeling. Can't fish this weekend, I am on call. Going to VNP on the 22nd. It can't get here fast enough. MAYBE next weekend I can get out on the St Louis and hook a few to calm my excitement.

You aint a kiddin' couldn't sleep last night! I was awake until at least 1:30 (went to bed at 10:00). I will be thinking of you guys and I appreciate the sentiments. Got to load the truck and wait for my fishing partners.

I just got home. Had a great time! Lots of fish were caught and the majority were between 19 and 26 inches! We personaly took 1 keeper 16 1/2 inch walleye and 2 more that had to go back cause they were too big, but we stopped fishing at around 7:00 pm. Our friends came in at around 9:00 pm with 13 keeper fish! Go shallow with a jig and a minnow.

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!

      I'm debating whether to bring my small fishing boat on a camping trip with the inlaws last weekend iinJuly. Is it worth it fishing this time of year. We are staying in the Whipolt bay. If I do fish it may be after dark when kids are sleeping. Would be open to catching both walleyes and/or panfish. Send me advice please as I have fished the lake only once.

      Cliff, Why do you use a 1/2 crawler and not a whole one? I usually use a whole crawler on my Lindy. I caught this nice 27" tonight on a red #2 with a green soft bead and a big fat whole crawler.
