A few years ago a friend of mine who doesn't bowhunt decided to get married on bow opener. Now this wouldn't have been so bad but the wedding was in western Minnesota in a small rural church in the country. And on the way to the church to go to the wedding, we went past two different bow hunters who are outside there trucks getting ready to go to there treestands. And the next morning I was going to go bow hunting but the liquid refreshments during the wedding said otherwise.

Oh well, shot a doe the next saturday! grin

Hey at least its on Friday instead of Saturday. I'm skipping a wedding this Oct because I already have a big hunt planned with a group of friends. Everyone likes to have those oh so beautiful fall weddings, half the time they miss the fall colors anyway and just end up pi$$ing off all their friends.

I know when I got married I put some thought into it, end of April, not a thing going on and I left a nice 2-3 week buffer before opening fishing so guys can get their boats ready.

I'm guilty of the October wedding, fortunetly it's on duck opener and traditionaly I go west to duck now so the anniversary doesn't effect to much of my hunting season and it keeps the boss-lady happy.

Ha ha I was wondering if I forgot something and was going to get called out on it. In my defense I'm from "up north" so we don't have too many Turkey hunters up there. I will also say my wedding was at the end of Aprils so my "instincts" must have kicked in when I planned it right between the Turkey and Fishing opener.

Bachelor party last weekend just as I was coming down with a cold. Playing paintball and staying out late put the nail in the coffin for scouting the new land on Sunday. sick Groom's dinner and rehearsal tonight with tomorrow being the big show. Sunday cleanup. Still haven't gotten the house painted.... What the ?????????????????

Good luck to all you that are getting out this weekend though!

      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"

      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.
