Saved the worst for last.

I went out Saturday and fished five different lakes with very little luck.

Tried lots of different depths from 4-22 ft. It was all garbage.

I was in the Kinston, Dassel area.

I'm done with the ice. Bring out the long rods.

Much the same here on Sunday and Monday,I am hanging up the icefishing stuff and getting the boat ready.

Note about the ice conditions; There were spots that were very "soft and spongy", I was surprised to see how fast it got bad.

The crappies have moved in several times and then we get a cold front blowing in and they move back out. With the forecast of above normal temps things should get interesting soon.

Yeah, conditions are lining up nicely. Should be a good opener.

Well, how'd people do this past weekend. I heard lots of reports, but walleye fishing was spotty at best. A few fish here and there, but I think some clear water may have played a factor in a tough day bite for most.  I had a few nice walleyes, bass and crappies. Plenty for a fish fry and some pics. The memories were the most important part. Had a good time with my dad.

Spotty seemed to be the word I heard about the opener as well.

Made it out today to Clearwater. Didn't get to the lake till about 10 but targeted some eyes and got one around 11 that was 19 and a half.  I don't have much experience out there but tried lots of spots pulling a jig up the drops with leeches. Might be to soon for the leeches. Also got a few pike.

Fished cedar lake this evening. Moved around alot when I first got out there just trying to mark fish n jigging a leech quick at each spot. Not much activity ended up getting one 14 inch eye in about 15 ft bobber fishing. Hoping for some good warm stable weather.

Hit up an area lake Friday night and Saturday morning. Friday night casted jigs and crank baits. Caught one 24" on a crankbait, nothing on the jig. Saturday it was game on, fished 7'-12' with a jig and  half a crawler and jig/leech. Caught around 30 eyes between my buddy and I. Nothing real big but tons of mid range fish (14"-17") with a couple cigars as well. Water temp was around 67*.  Here is the 24"er, t-boned a perch pattern trolls to 15' rapala. Not sure how to spin it I think it's sideways, whatever I'm going to bed. image.thumb.jpg.9049695657aa4e18e449b549

The walleyes are definitely transitioning to more of the summer spots now. Water temps are creeping up there now. I saw 72 on an area lake yesterday.

Eyes are still going though. The heat is coming though, going to change everything in a week or two.

The lake are getting hotter and greener by the day. Won't be long and we will be able to walk across the scum on top.

Going to take my daughter out tomorrow for some fishing, has anyone been having any luck at Stella, Washington, Long or Spring? Would like to get her into some pike and panfish and may be a eye or 2. Thanks

Nothing biting on Hook??

Minnebelle would be good for action. Lots of bass, sunfish and some monster pike and walleyes.

Lots of small ones, but at least we are seeing fish this spring compared to last. Hopefully we will see some size to them after this summer, LOTS weds but water is still very clear. So the fish kill seems to be a benefit in the long run.

Went to Stella and was able to get a few bass and Northerns and had a pair of loons hanging around the boat so she was happy :) Been wanting to hit up Mini Belle ever since we looked at a house out there, might try to hit it next week - thanks!

Fished the western section of Clearwater Lk last night with terrible results. Fished mainly for sunfish, but also threw a Carolina rig for bass in key areas. I don't think I've ever seen the lake so dead, both for fishing and boating activity. Put this lake low on your list for fishing fun.

      @Surface Tension @eyeguy 54    The shaver style augers are easier on drills. The blades last a lot longer as well. But the two guys I tag will give great info. I have seen eyeguys nils cut and it’s fast now that he up graded drills. Surface tension sharpens nilsblades and is the go to guy for information on the in my opinion.

      I used to have that problem with my 115 merc, since it only charged at like 10 amps.  The new suzuki is more like 60 amps, plus I hooked up the third bank on my built in charger to the cranking battery.   Haven't had a problem since.

      We are planning on getting a new roof on the cabin next year.  Old one is 20 years old. Thinking about metal.   Anyone got opinions about metal roofs, or suggestions for a reliable guy to put it on?

      Ozzie we have to learn how to fish a new lake structure cause of the zebras I guess. Fish upper quite a bit and have seen no sign of clearer water yet. How did the three way rig work out? 
    • mrpike1973
      I just replaced my Interstate battery for my trolling motor they last 1 year and 1 month just out of warranty. Went with a different brand this time. I would also get a separate battery for all that stuff going to the starting battery.

      yes the weeds are thick in areas but it is amazing to me that traditional weed lines are not even sprouting up in areas!!  I have a section of lake that I have been walleye fishing for the past 6 years and every year there has been a weedline to follow.  The last 2 years we have seen the zebra's become prevalent and this year no weeds in that area!  Crazy

      Actually, it makes perfect sense. The car's charging system probably can't keep up for the same reason. I know when I fire up my farm tractor, even when it doesn't take much to get it started, it can take a lot longer than one realizes to recharge the batteries to full strength. During the winter, I only use the tractor for short periods so I often have to put a charger on it after each use to be sure the batteries are up to full power.    Can have similar issues with ATVs. Winches can put a pretty heavy load on the electrical system and using them to lift a blade repeatedly will put a drain on the battery that the charging system is unable to keep up to.    Starting an engine takes a lot of power and it takes more than just a few seconds to recharge the battery afterwards.
