is the lake ahead of schedule?

Recommended Posts

Due to the early ice out but then the colder April is the lake way ahead of schedule or should the normal opener spots still be produtive? Should a guy think about moving away from warmer spots on the sand for example?

All indications around the state where walleye angling is legal right now is that nothing is ahead of schedule.

Walleyes in the Mississippi are still reported having eggs and milt when caught recently! And the river water was 52 degrees on the 21st of April!

I believe our warm March has neutralized by a cool and wet April.

Water temps as of today 52-53 degrees..I'll be rigging secondary breaks and transitions. Good luck on opener!

Stick in Mud

I put the boat in the lake this weekend and took it out for a spin. I plugged in the depth finder to see if I could mark some fish, and I saw a few off the rock/mud transitions in 26 ft and a few out on the mud. Not much, though, and I didn't see any in shallow, but I never do with the small cone angle. But if ther's any wind at all, I'll be trolling in shallow during low-light periods. Calm conditions, and I'll be fishing a little bit of everything until I figure them out.

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
