Well, how did you boys fare?

We chacked 3 lakes, water temps 48 on lake 1, notta, 49 w/ current on another, notta, 50.4 on the final lake, bingo! We caught a fair amount of 'gills, crappies, and perch all mixed. Nothing huge on the crappies, only 2 keepers, but we did spank 2 hybrid 'gills over 9.5"!

Checked a few lakes myself. Found active fish where water was over 50. Warmest I found was 50.6, with main lakes still 46-47. We had enough for a fry between crappies and gills. I may have to skip out on walleye fishing this weekend and do more panfish chasing! I love this time of year!

We went out today, and really got into a few of them. Lots of gills over the 8 inch mark and plenty of crappies to keep you busy. The fish seem to still be a little deeper, they are not in the shallows quite yet. Probably caught 100 fish today between the three of us in just a few hours. The water temp was hanging right around 51 degrees. Good luck!

We caught a ton, but the crappies were mostly small. The 'gills were beautiful, and so were the perch. I too am looking forward to some pannies this weekend, but I'm saving them for after I've got a few walleyes on the table.... wink

I think if the weather holds up were in for a great weekend, however i also think its going to stink now as i have to cancell fishing for this weekend frown first time in my life or since i have been old enough to fish with dad i am going to miss the opener:( Well atleast i have 43 weeks to chase walleyes and i guess looking at it that way missing one weekend is not that big of a deal. Good Luck to all of you that are chasing fish this coming weekend, wish i could be out there with ya

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      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.
    • Shulsebus
      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.
