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

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
