Sarah Is generally a good spot to be on the opener but expect ALOT of traffic. When were out there we a usually pulling Shad Raps dragging them on the bottom.

Another method that has worked on opener has been a slow drift dragging a jig head tipped with a minnow. Slow is key. We have put the drift sock out before. But it really depends on wind in SW MN. Your best bet on plugs would be a number 5 shad rap on Sarah, and again, I cannot stress enough SLOW SLOW SLOW.

Slow and small seems to be your famous words... As long as it works that is the main thing.... LOL

Not so much on the small for open water. But SLOW is key on opener. Come July you can speed troll!

I have not fished Minnesota for a couple of years so maybe this year I should try it again... Sara was always a good lake for me...

As said, go slow. I've found trolling #5 shad raps work well also. Sarah is a great lake for trolling. Later in the season you need to speed up the presentation, but not during opener.

Expect a LOT of boats joining you if you fish Sarah on the opener.
