Opener on Whitefish


Recommended Posts

Kind of in a dillema here, just found out that my dad's buddy wants us to come up to his place this year for opener on the Whitefish Chain, I have never fished the lake this early and want to still make it a successful opener... Just wondering if anyone more familiar with the lake could give me some advice on a general place or pattern I could try for some walleyes... I've fished the Pine River inlet to Upper Whitefish with limited success, is this a decent opener location? Thank you a ton for any help! I just want to shake off this uncertainity I have with fishing this new body of water, thanx again and good luck!!

Iv had no trouble finding walleyes on whitefish. I like to slip bobber or lindy-rig during the day and troll husky jerks in the evning to night. I have also caught walleyes slip bobbering at night. Iv done best on whitefish and Island lake for walleyes. Just find some good looking walleye structure and you will find walleyes. The one time i fished whitefish the week of opener i found the walleyes in 7-16 feet. If you troll try fire-tiger, iv slayed the walleyes on whitefish with a fire tiger husky jerk.

Rooster,

I'm not looking for any hot spots, but when you found eyes on Island lake, were they in the similar depths as whitefish (7-16)? I'll be up there Saturday evening-Tuesday afternoon chasing eyes.

Thanks

As cold as the water is, you should still be able to pick some up in the channels and river mouths. That's where I would start if it were me.

Thanks alot for the replys!! I have a little more confidence coming in now to the weekend, hope I can get into a couple fish! I'll be starting at the Pine River I think, hope it isn't too crowded , I suppose I'll move out and jig some sunken islands or something... I suppose u can just follow any of the tons of boats out there huh? smile.gif Naw, I avoid the crowds when I can... Good luck and we'll see ya on the lake!

I will also be opening on Whitefish, be it a day late. I will be starting early Sunday and fishing thru Monday night. Anyone that sees a Maroon Lund with the FM Logos and Stickers, stop and say Hi. Maybe we can compare notes and help each other out smile.gif

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      Where are the opener fish pictures?

      All of us who couldn't be there for opener would love to hear how the fishing was....😉

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
