I am going to be fishing Clitherall for the opener and i am looking for any advice for walleyes/crappies. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Good Luck!

who are those guy

If a lot of folks are on the points - be wary. These are fairly shallow points with deep drops and fish scatter deep with alot of traffic. Last year I had luck on the West side of the north arm in about 15'. Slow jigheads tipped. The south end is usually slow. I am starting in the north end hardly moving with small jigs.

The weed flats are good at dusk also. Rig a big shiner on a slip bobber while anchored. Always works good for me for the first couple weeks of the season. Look for about 13-15 feet of water off the shoreline breaks.

Have you fished it before?

There are threes lobes to the lake, and coming out of the lobe that the access is there's a sand point on the northside. It's not exactly wht I look for this early in the season, but the east side of that point can be very good.

Directly across the lake there's a point with a lot of good structure on it, and then it comes out to a huge rock point that extends out into the middle of thge main lake basin. I've caught some really good fish all thge way down this section.

Also, just down the lake form the long rock point, there's some boulders on the next point. For some reason I've never had great success in this spot, but it sure looks the part.

If I was gonna fish it, I'd have a live bait rig, a slip-bobber and a Husky Jerk ready.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?

      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
