After a wonderful Winter in the Netherlands Tim and I got it up to LOW for some of the best Walleye we have ever seen for An opener. But we were wondering if anyone has any ideas why such active fish this early in the season?

JZ,

Me and my buddies were up for the opener, and nailed um.

We found that soaking our jigs in a glass tube filled with

a secret smelly formula at night, added a scent that drove them wild. (sorry I can't tell you what the formula is.....

otherwise it wouldn't be a secret) grin.gif(lets just say it is all natural and everyone has access to it)

4 to 1 catch ratio for my buddies that used it verse the ones that didn't.

Happy fishing

BTU

Just got back from the Angle today and had some great fishing! The weather was so-so, we were caught out in a pretty big shower today but the fishing was as good as I have ever seen it. Our biggest was a 28" walleye CPR'd with many others thrown back as well. Fast fishing if you were in the right places.

Frenzy,

The key words are" All the right places"

That is key on any fishing trip out with the boys.

Congrats on the 28 incher

We were out on Monday..boy was it blow'n..... I don't know how many we bagged under 10" a few in the 13 - 15 inch range.... I wish we could have found some bigger ones.

We forgot the Secret formula back at camp( I should say Bill forgot it back at camp) mad.gif I am sure that is why our sizes were so small.

Fish on!!!!

Had a great time in kenora and fished back to angle. I would say it was poor at best. But it alway a great up there just getting some, R&R smirk.gif

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
