Might be going at midnight, what to do???

7 posts in this topic

I am thinking of heading out way before daylight on opener mainly cause I got the bug! I've never really fished in the way early dawn (2 am or so) before so what would be the best tactic? Bobbers, cranks???

Do you have a GPS and the Lakemaster chip? If you do, you already have a leg up. I would also get a good Spotlight to see those buoys on your way out. I think you can do anything. I would try cranks and or bobbers. Keep it between 3-9ft. Just my thoughts, but I would be flexible. If you find a pattern with cranks, go back and bobber fish some of those areas.

I would fish Agate Reef with bobbers 9-12 ft. If nothing doing, get out the Cranks grin.gif Around 7:00 am hit Fischer's around 18 ft. Have done well there the last two years. cool.gif

The Sand should be good as well.

I am definatly going to be crankin. it is 100 times easier than rigging at night and bobber fishing can get pretty boring in the dead of the night. you need that rumble of the motor behind you to keep you awake. cool.gif

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
