Great opener this year.  Cottonwood was on fire.  Deadcoon was kicking out limits on crankbaits.  Dane  was easy no matter how you were fishing.  Get out and get yours before all to double dippers clean them out.

My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

Yeah and if that's the case bring your own water for the boat to sit in. I've seen nest on a normal opener!!:cry:

Who is guiding the Governor?  Any idea what the bite on Green will be like?

Cant help you who the guide will be for the govener opening day. ,  But to answer your question  for the bite on green. My guess it will be poor. Green is a deep clear lake and I just don't see the temps being warm enough opener to kick the eyes in. Look more towards memorial weekend to first week in June for Green to light up. My guess is the guides will hit some of the shallower more productive walleye lakes in the area. Foot, Diamond, Kandyohi, Wakanda. These will be much better options early in the season.

I was out chasing sunfish and crappies this weekend and in the bays where I was fishing I had water temps ranging from 58-61 degs.  at the bottom of my trolling motor so about 2' below the surface.  I couldn't believe it was that warm already.

I bet the boats will be packed in front of the dam by the Ole Mill Inn.

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.

      Nice! Thx for sharing.  I have so many weird stories like that and it's nice to hear another strange one!  Great story and memory.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.
