Fishing pressure

3 posts in this topic

Was just wanting some info about the week after opener. I have a brother planning on coming up next wednesday and thursday and was wondering how spooky the eyes are after the busy weekend on the lakes around the Mankato area. And if they are spooky and finicky, any tips anyone can give me too better our chances would help alot. Thanks Duane

I wouldn't worry about the fish being spooked. Weather changes would have a bigger effect on them.

I wouldn't worry about the pressure either, things should just be warming up and midweek is usually better than the actual weekend, fish shallow. Inside and outside of the weedlines, some lakes the tops are already showing up, good luck, they might hit leeches with the warm weather we have been having, so I would bring both minnows and leeches, try trolling cranks along the weedlines till you find them, and then pitch jigs in that area,

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
