I dunno- I hit a couple of smaller lakes yesterday and couldn't keep them off. Caught 30 in an hour with several 12" ers. Maybe the cusp of the weather change??

Hey Guido: How goes the battle> Good to see you again. I hope your winter has been better than mine has been? What are you talking about Sunnies or Crappies?

Sure sounds like you had some fun! Anyway, good to see you again. You take care and have a good time out there. Don't fall in!

Tight Lines!

Pretty much crappies with a few sunnies mixed in. they seemed to prefer 1/100th pink jigs with a red eurolarva. They were attackin'.

What's been going on with you this winter?

Good point on the flags...eh!

I caught about 14 eyes on sat, kept 4 between 13- 15inches.deeper than expected caught most in 13 ft. but as deep as 20ft. surprised to see more than half of them were still milking when i grabbed them. minnows did most the damage.i can finally type now that my fingers are dry and out of that wind, but i guess it was opener!

2 guys caught 16 walleye and kept 8. Never fished deeper than 9 ft. Caught on chartreuse & white jigs with fathead minnows. Only one caught on a leech. The northerns were very active. Caught 21 with the largest being about 5 lbs.

Caught about 20 over both days. All on leech and a hook in 6-12. Seemed they were a little on the deeper side in the middle of the day and shallower in the AM and evening. Most were 13-15", biggest was 20". Only 1 northern for me at 27"

In the 6 years I've had a place on [PoorWordUsage], this was by far the most boats I've seen out on opener. Was only able to fish for about 1 hour on Sat. and didn't catch a thing. I'm hoping it was the GULP and not me. Going to try it again tomorrow.

Just got back from bsl and heres my report. Wallys were very active in 4-12 ft. Shiners seemed to be the ticket. Got blown off the lake Wednesday and woke up to snow showers thursday. Didn't take long to remember the white caps and the rough conditions but all in all it was fun. I will add though, the hillcrest resort may need to do some improvements if they want to continue to rent cabins. I recommend staying elsewhere!

Glad you caught some fish anyway. Yeah, those cabins are in pretty rough shape. Instead of re-doing the lodge, they should have put some $$ into the cabins IMO.

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?

      To help protect Minnesota waters, the Department of Natural Resources is reminding people to properly dispose of prohibited or unwanted aquarium plants and animals. “It’s important for hobbyists, teachers, parents and children to know that they should never release aquarium animals or plants into the wild,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Some of the pets and plants that live in aquariums are prohibited species that can cause serious harm if released into lakes, rivers or ponds.” The DNR recommends teachers check the prohibited invasive species list before choosing classroom aquarium animals. “We also encourage teachers to discuss invasive species with their students,” Wolf said. People with aquarium animals or plants that are prohibited or that they no longer want can dispose of them at two upcoming surrender events sponsored by Minnesota Sea Grant: Habitattitude Surrender and University of Minnesota Duluth PAWS Event Wednesday, April 25, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Kirby Student Lounge, University of Minnesota Duluth, 1120 Kirby Drive, Duluth. Fish, aquatic plants, invertebrates, amphibians and reptiles accepted. www.seagrant.umn.edu/news/2018/04/25 Minnesota Aquarium Society Spring Auction and Surrender Saturday, April 28, 11 a.m. Lutheran Church of the Redemption (gymnasium) 927 East Old Shakopee Road, Bloomington. Fish, aquatic plants and invertebrates accepted. www.aquarium.mn/announcements/events/auction/spring-auction-2018 Some retailers sell plants and animals that are prohibited in Minnesota. One example frequently found in classrooms, the red swamp crayfish, is causing major environmental and economic harm as nearby as Wisconsin. More information about prohibited and regulated species and what to do with them is available at mndnr.gov/invasives/laws. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
