Opener Weekend

Recommended Posts

Aquaman01

My son (4) and I headed 'up north' (Osakis area) for a traditional opener weekend, and had mixed results. Friday shore-fishing panfish was great. Our new mantra is "where to go, and what to throw" followed with a high-5. Saturday we took my inadequately equipped boat out on a small lake and got nothin' but cold & cranky. Hung up the boat and went back to our shore-spot for more sunnies and some LM Bass as well as a nice northern that we lost in the cat-tails.

Sunday, however, found us on the banks of The Missy putting crawlers on the bottom seeing what might come out to play. Our best fishing was that afternoon - a dozen or so rod-bending, drag-ripping carp & suckers, a nice smallie and a beast of a bowfin wearing it's spring plumage of neon-green fins. Fun Fun Fun!

Is the first sign that you are a river-rat a case of the "screw-its" when ya think about lake-fishing? I think it's time to start selling plasma to save up for that River Pro.

Mr Special

Glad to hear you did well on the panfish. Now that you're back we should hit the Minnesota river. That's were I went this weekend and the river gods seem to like me. The trout lords didn't seem to think the same though. I also would rather be on the river throwing crawlers than most lakes. I also got the ride in the RiverPro and met Dennis and Sam.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
