Recommended Posts

I can't believe no one has started a thread yet on the SD Border Opener yet on Big Stone or Traverse????? No takers. We are almost a month away right?

Who's in?

I hope to be ready. I have an awful lot of work to do on my boat before she's seaworthy. Having said that, I'm shooting to be on the water catching crappies well before the border water opener.

I'll be there, but I'm far from ready. Last year was tough for our group on Big Stone. There were some pretty good storms out there during our stay. Nice weather is about all I'm hoping for this year.

i will be ready but there just might be ice on the lake.there is not a pressure ridge on the whole lake and there is 30 inches of ice.with little to no run off as of right now. if there is a year when there will be ice on for opener this will be the year.but if we get rain that can change things in a hurry.the ice fishing for walleyes on bigstone was bad most of the year so i am thinking the spring should be good

I plan on getting over there if the wind isnt blowing 30 mph out of the north west like it normally does. We are far from open water right now but things can change with a little rain and wind. I'll second the slow walleye bite this winter hopefully that means a good spring bite.

I've never fished Hendricks, much to my shame. However, I've been told it's a real nice lake but watch out for the glacial deposits (rocks).

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks
