No, he's not Tim. I'm Tim. I know that my name says Matt, but I thought it would be funny if I picked a name that rhymes with fat, you know, because I'm fat.

After 3 months of planning fishing opener, the bizzo told me last night that I had to spend time with her frown.gif

I'm so PO'd right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was going to spend Midnight to Saturday after noon down on a southern MN lake (Lura) and spend Saturday afternoon and evening on the MN river. But looks like I have to leave all the fish there for someone else

Korn...bring her with. Ask her to go along and maybe she won't think it's such a bad idea. Most likely she'll be happy first, because you asked her to go along and second, because you are spending time with her. Just a thought...good luck. smile.gif

Tonka would be pretty busy with alot of trafic. But it still sounds good.

Korn,
Just go anyway, so you don't get any for a while. Opener is worth it smile.gif. you still have YOUR life to live! With how much you fish, she should know how important it is to you.

Just to put the record straight. I did ask her to go with but she couldn't becuase she had a project for school that she had to work on, but yet I was still supposed to spend time with here when she was working on the project. Then a day later I was told that I never ask her to do anything with me. Then last night I find out that she was already planning going up to Mille Lacs on Sunday with her ex hubby.

guess what.....I'm following "Whatts" suggestion and I am going fishing this weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Korn-remember this:

Back to the subject at hand... I'll be out on Tonka. I have done well there the last several openers. This year I am going out at midnight, which is the earliest I have ever gone out. This brings up a question. I normally fish 8-12 fow on the opener, and do very well there. Since I am going earlier than usual, should I target shallower water, like 3-6 feet? Any advice about shallow eyes on Tonka would be appreciated.

My question exactly. On Tonka, for example, trolling cranks after dark...the weeds are reviving, growing, but not up. Do you find 3-6 FOW with weeds, or 3-6 FOW clear? Normally I'd seek a weedline, maybe 10, 15 feet deep, and work the edge, but there aren't edges in the shallows as much, just areas where the weeds are not yet full. Suggestions?

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒
    • osok
      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.
    • Borch
      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
