Hey every one... Just days away from opener! Any good dirt on where you are planning on going and what do we have for predictions on the opener bite?

We have some interesting weather up to opener, what do you think this will do to the bite?

Lets get started on our bragging board............

Ah yes... The Fishing Opener.

I'll be dressed head to toe camo with a box call in my hand. I didn't pay attention to what weekend was what when applying for my turkey permit and ended getting a tag for opener weekend. grin.gif I'll be in SE MN in the Cannon Falls area.

I've typically opened on Maple or Union. A few years back, Union gave up a 6 pounder and another 3-4 'eaters' on the opener. We were slip bobber fishing leeches with lighted bobbers near an inlet to the lake at sundown. There was lots of mixed bag action with bluegills, pike, walleyes, and those pesky bullheads. No I'm not talking about Maple, it is my secret spot on Union.

I think the Red Lake River might be a good shot also. Should be a few walleyes to be had down by the new dam.

Good luck everybody!

I'm gonna spend some time on the Roseau river the week of opener. The water level had been dropping nicely before the rains and it was looking prime, not sure how much she has swollen but the fishing is usually pretty good for Wally's and Channel Cats in spots when the waters a bit high....But not too high! Walleyes and prespawn Cats on my 8wt flyrod is a nice change of pace from the LOTW/Rainy thing.

      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.

      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. 😂
