Hey, hey. We'll be fishin' Jesse as well. This will be a first try on Jesse for opener. The weather forecast looks a bit nippy for the weekend. Might give Bowstring a shot too. What are you going to throw at them walleyes this year? Jig/minnow, maybe some leeches? What? Any pointers for fishing this lake? Thanks and have a great weekend.

I'm going anywhere but Jessie, not because it isn't a good lake but because every year it gets more of a zoo. If you plan on landing at the public access be prepared to wait quite a while and probably park out on the road. This is from past experience. The opener is a great time to hit some of the smaller lakes and then hit Jessie and Bowstring later, just my thoughts. Of course I can fish during the week where most people can't so it is easier for me. Anyway good luck to all where ever you fish and be curtious on the accesses as waiting in line for someone who has to back down on the ramp and then start loading their gear gets VERY annoying!!! Have a great opener!!!

Hello all...

crappieslapper-Yeah the weather does look a little chilly, but it's better than snow and 40mph winds like a couple years ago. We always start out fishing with a jig/minnow, usually that works the best, but occasionally when the eyes are picky they will only bite on leeches. So try jig/minnow first. As far as pointers....if you are landing on the main one, to the left there is a stream/creek just a little ways down the shore on the same side...watch out in front of the creek, there are many snags and deadheads that are underwater.I've lost many jigs in that area frown.gif And if you land at Jessieview, it is very shallow at least 100 yards out into the lake. I've walked out there before in chest waders and have only been up to my waist in water and i'm only 5'7"!!!lol Otherwise just watch where the crowds are a try where they are to start with. Hope this helps...Good Luck!!

jessielake67- lol about our cabin being the party cabin. We usually sit by the fire and fall asleep.. smile.gif Cabin 5 usually has the big ones. We have two red boats...a Mirrocraft and a Crestliner. Maybe we'll see ya there...Good Luck!!

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
    • Borch
      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
    • Wanderer
      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.
