Wow what an opener

14 posts in this topic

4 of us fished for 4 hours and got our limit of eyes and a few bunus perch and crappies. By far the best opener in years for us.

What lake dude??

I'm glad you did better than I. The Mrs and I spent the morning trolling Lime lake looking for snot rockets. They hid real well and we got the skunk. We went home for a while and later in the afternoon we tried a hour or so on Shetek. All we got there was one bullhead but bullheads don't count so we got the skunk there too.

I don't think it's a serect anymore. I beleive I was on the same lake. We had two limits in couple of hours with some nice perch. I counted 65 boats on the lake at one time.

Sounds like some of you had a pretty good opener. I fished saturday night for catfish and lost a very nice flathead. The only problem we had was those dang eyes wouldnt leave our bullheads along.

Talked to a couple this morning that was on the same lake that deadminnowcather was on I would guess. They were off the lake with a two person limit yesterday morning by 10:30 a.m. The lake is exactly the one everyone thinks it is. No surprise to anyone that has fished more than ten minutes in southwest Minnesota. She'll be rolling out there today.

sounds like good time had by all! I was on a lake by myself, with kids today, 26 walleyes from 16-18.5 inches in two hours. All released. By far a better than average opener. Brent

Great opener! Couldnt have asked for nicer weather and we caught our limit and each kept a couple for a meal... Biggest one went 22" and our average fish was right around 18"!

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
