Could I get some advice on where to start fishing for walleyes on opening day? Should I start on the big lake or choose one of the smaller ones? How about some techniques, this is the first opener we will be going up north to fish in many years. Any and all information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

We had late ice out up here and a late walleye run there will be a large number of people fishing the river mouth and government point if your into crowds other than that there will be fish hanging off of the rock bars but will require some searching. A shiner minnow on jig or Indy style rig should work the best with a slow presentation. The northerns will be vary active in the bays and smaller lakes A blue jig is a good color to start with this time of year you should do well for walleyes on main lake if you are willing to put some time into prospecting. Good luck and enjoy the day keep your hooks sharp lure wet and line tight.<BR> Dan

Thanks Dan, we will be doing everything in our power to catch a few! We are not coming up for the boat show on water so thanks again for some great info, we just want to stretch our lines and try to fool some eyes. Just wondering if the night bite is worth a hoot, trolling cranks?, bobber fishing the mini reefs? Thanks again! Experts like you make this site great, it's like pre-fishing without the travel time.

Both trolling cranks and bobber fishing are vary productive you will do well trolling cranks on the larger shelves seems like 8 to 12 feet start early evening and into dark if you can manage to keep fishing after dark from turning into a rodeo kind of tough with some clients so I mainly concentrate on finding fish in daylite hours. when bobber fishing try a small 1/32 oz jig head and leech if using minnows may have to go bigger depending on minnow size. Hope you had a productive opener the fish seemed to bite pretty good one of the better opening days weather and fish. Keep your hooks sharp lure wet and line tight.<BR> Dan<BR> Lake State Taxidermy & Guide
