Fishing Opener Results? BSL?

5 posts in this topic

How did everybody do on the opener weekend? It was a beautiful weekend and I saw lots of boats on the water. I am most interested in Big Sandy Lake, but also am curious about other lakes in the McGregor area. I managed about a dozen walleye on BSL (mostly small 11-15"). Thanks.

it used to.............I think the lack of stocking is taking it's toll. For 10 years running I had no problem catching walleyes on this lake...........now you really have to work for them. (Could be that I have 2 kids and don't go as much :-)

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
