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

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
