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,

      I just finished two more of these 10 rod racks ... one is spoken for but the other is available. If you were thinking of getting one, now would be a great time. I could stain it to your spec and put the final poly finish on it and ship it to you in a couple days. Let me know if you are interested.

      Just went and checked out the lake, it is a slushy mess but I can get anywhere out there on the south west side, and all I have is front wheel drive minivan lol So I'm going to do a little recon on a lake map and pick my spot for the evening bite. Any suggestions on depth for walleyes?

      Nice article. Perhaps the lake trout season should close in February right along with walleyes and pike?

      Yeah, saw that too. Rumor has it he was heading towards the river access from Horseshoe. Not smart.

      Nice report! I hope he cleaned the fish for you, lol!
