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"!

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
