What do you think the weather is going to be like on opener, hot and dry, cold and rainy?

It will be a wash out, so my advice would be for everyone to stay home and wiat until the following weekend.!

lol I just wonder where everyone gets the forecast from. One guy says 5mph winds from north, the next says 20mph winds. LOL I find weather.com to be the best predictor of the weather. Forecast is not going to be accurate until the day before or the day of opener.

Isn't it funny?

Saturday for Garrison is a high of 49* (weatherchannel.com) and rain/snow showers. Pretty typical for opener, and I'm sure it will end up windy on Mille Lacs as usual. Wind forecasts mean nothing on this lake. Have fun and a safe opener everyone!

There is a 20 degree drop between today and Saturday. Can you say "cold front"?

well looks like im going to be spending a lot of time in cove trying to pick off some pannies and perch for the pan if i cant get my tin lizzie out on the big lake because of the wind.

I heard 15 mph. If you can take the beating and keep your boat slow enough you will catch fish. Its a good ol' walleye chop but the key is to stay slow. Good luck and dress warm!

15 mph is nothing........ the gusts are what kills you.... and when the wind gets too intense... bobber it up... you'll pound em'

Alright folks. Screw the weather. LOL We all are still going to go out freeze our nuts off and have a blast doing it. Then on sunday when your sitting in a warm car you will say "Why the heck do we do this every year?"

Regardless of weather. I hope everyone catches monsters and has a great time. Good Luck everyone. Try to get pics and video if possible. I will post links to our videos on Monday.

15mph on the big pond will be a little treacherous.....but I think I have been out there when the winds have been stronger.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.
