Open Water

Recommended Posts

WalleyeMan45

Can anyone tell me if there will be any open water fishing opportunities? I'm coming to Alexandria next weekend (April 12-13). It sound like the weather will be warming this week. Any reports of an shallow crappies being caught yet? Some of the lakes here in the metro area are ice free. Any replies are appreciated!

Walleyeman....
Ice has pulled away from shore almost everywhere....but still plenty out there...will be checking and watching closely this week and keep you posted. The north end of Geneva..off the pier is open, as is the pier area on the south of Victoria...both areas do well right after ice out for crappies...in fact I saw a couple anglers on the Victoria pier on saturday...one had his portable shelter out on the pier as a wind break!...

North 10 mile is wide open...up by Fergus Falls...

We'll keep you posted this week...

Here in the big city of L.P. there is still about 2 1/2 feet of ice. Charlotte is one of the last lakes to go out in the area.

Zimm - yer in L.P.? Cool - I go up to the inlaw's place a lot during the spring/summer/fall.
I won't plan on taking a trip up to Charlotte anytime soon, then! Hope it's clear by May 10th! I don't want to fight the Osakis crowds on that Saturday. Maybe I'll run into you sometime.

      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.

      Has been pretty slow lately. One night you do decent then the next nothing. Very hit or miss.

      Aren't there some great spots along the Mississippi south of the TC? I'm not familiar with that part of the state but it seems I've heard things.

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before

      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor
