It is almost here, Who's getting excited? Where is everyone going to be on the first weekend? I think it will be an awesome opener this year. I know that the crappie anglers are catching quite a few walleyes lately. I'll be at the bait shop all weekend serving up lively bait and some fresh baked cookies. I am really looking forward to seeing friends, old and new. It sure is a great tradition. Minnesota's walleye opener is tough to beat.

Don't be afraid to fish shallow on Whitefish. There are some awesome fish caught each opener there. Try pitching jigs and minnows, rapalas, or jigs and Gulp Alive up shallow against shallow weeds. Fish neckdown areas or the area around the Pine River inlet.

Good Luck.

We will be trying Gull for the first time. Is Gull really crowded on opener? I would assume it is.

I agree Jason, it should be a good opener this year. I will be in on Friday to pick up some shiners and fatheads. Will be on Gull both days and really looking forward to getting out. It was a long winter!!!

Gull isn't very crowded.

I'll be out on Pelican at 12:01. My brother and I have made this a tradition for the last 12 years, but he thought opener was a week later this year and scheduled his family vaction over opener, so I will be taking a friend from work out. All depends on the weather on how hard I will fish, as there have been openers where we could have stayed out all night and others where we were ready to go in after a 1/2 hour.

I'll be on gull. I'm toying with the idea of going out at 12:01, but I'll probably come to my senses by Friday night.

All I am going to do is follow people really close and try to zero in on their spots and hopefully copy what they are doing!:)

Looks like we will have a little wind to contend with, could be worse, could have snow like last year.

I will be on Gull for opener for the first time. Do the landings fill up pretty early?

Thanks,

I'll be on a little off the chain lake, in an old pontoon, with three super eager 6-11 year olds smile I am sure we will catch tons of small pike, some crappies, non-targeted bass, and maybe even a walleye or two. And it will be a great opener, once again smile

Good luck to all!

Looking forward to it. I am leaving in 2 hours to start the weekend. Good luck to those who need it as I surely do.

      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.
    • Hookmaster
      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      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.
