FREE Seminar: Southern-style Walleyes, '09 MN Opener...


Recommended Posts

I was recently contacted by the staff at Gander Mountain in Mankato, MN and asked to find an hour (or so) on my calendar for a seminar between now and walleye opener. Not an easy task but I did find one, so please mark your calendars too!

When: Sunday, May 3 @ 3:00 pm

Where: The Gander Lodge; Gander Mountain - Mankato, MN

At this seminar, I will focus on making sure you and your fishing partners are prepared for this year's walleye opener. Topics will include but are not limited to:

1. Location

2. Technique

3. Presentation

4. Gear

I'm really looking forward to this. It would be awesome to see many of you there, so spread the word. If you or others plan to attend, respond to this post. Thank you.

Nice to see a roster forming. With an early ice-out this year for the area, there will be many options for putting fish in the boat. However, it's important to have a game plan in place prior to making your first cast on opening morning. Let me help you put the pieces of the puzzle together. This seminar is not just for a beginner either. Often times, a discussion ensues on any particular subject and each of us learn from one another. If you're on the fence deciding to attend or not, you definitely should.

Shoot!

Unfortunately I'll be in Costa Rica on vacation... Well, not unfortnately, but I'm bummed that I will miss this. I'm a Pike, Bass and Panfish guy but Walleyes are my weak spot down here in the south. I'd really like to learn more about them and how they related to structure, etc. Hopefully this wont be your only seminar.

I want to scan your brain for your shallow water tactics grin

Info on the shallow eyes would be good. What type of water are we looking for, ie. are types of shallow water better than others..

Shallow water will definitely be touched on but be sure to bring specific questions with you as well.

I am about 90% sure I will be there. I will take any help you can offer. I don't have a clue how to catch a walleye around here.

A sneak peek at the agenda...

1. Windward vs. leeward side of lake

2. How shallow water transition areas affect (and impact) early season water clarity.

3. Deep vs. shallow water.

when all else seems to be failing, what method/lure does Jamison Vanden Einde find himself using/going to?

perhaps a little snippit on selective harvest/CPR? or is that too touchy?

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?
    • MikeG3Boat
      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
