Opener plans?

Recommended Posts

Stick in Mud

Anyone planning to hit the Pond for opener this year?  Yes, I know we won't be able to keep any, but...well, it's tradition for us, and if the winter bite is any indication (and usually it is), the fishing will be *nuts* this year.

 

It'll be midnight for me, pulling cranks over weeds somewhere between Wealthwood and Malmo. :)

I'll be on Mille lacs either Sunday evening or Monday depending on if I can get any for the freezer out of Red Lake on Saturday. Both yesterday and today the lake looked inviting but she sure gets angry fast it seems when I am on the pond. I'll definitely be fishing it weekly this year up until the July closure, the fact that we cannot keep any there this year doesn't bother me so much, it's nostolgic for me since it's where I fished growing up.

I hear you, Kettle.  It's nostalgia for me, too.  At least that's a part of it.  The other part, like this winter, is that the lake has been absolutely on fire for, what, three years now?  All winter, guys drive six hours farther north to keep 8 12'' sauger.  Or five hours farther for three 16'' from Red.  Nah...I'll save the money in gas, buy myself a few steaks, and have more fun catching more and bigger fish.

 

Ok, so I'm a little overconfident.  We'll see how it plays out. Reports (good, bad, or indifferent) to follow.

Not sure if it is just a small hatch or the beginning of one but had a few mayflies on my pickup windshield today on the south side of the lake.  I've had great days catching walleyes during a hatch and terrible ones so it doesn't much change my plans.

Yep, add a few minutes to that and it's how long to wait until you catch your first walleye of the year. :)

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
