How'd you do?


Recommended Posts

Well, I know the lake here has about a two foot chop (as far as I can see) and it's about 40 degrees. I'm glad our opener is next weekend.

How did everybody do? Any snowflakes? wink.gif

With warmer weather on its way for tomorrow and less wind--hopefully this will get the fish snapping. Typical minnesota opener--cold and windy.

Lake was so rough no one went out. We ended up fishing the Warroad river and catching some pike. Watched a guy off the boat docks on the river bring in a 22 inch eye, pretty nice fish too bad it was the only nice one i saw all day

ccmonsr how was the ride back from church? I heard your face was pretty cold on the way back. By the way them were some nice red horses you caught.

A few brave souls made it to the South tip Saturday... Didn't look like much fun out there to me.

Fished the Bay today, and we brought in 6 nice ones. Slow and chilly for the most part... found one spot with a few fish going... The water is pretty dirty, once it cleans up they are going to light up.

With as beautiful as the weather looked like it was going to be I made the decision to stay home. A 5 hour drive for what I was sure was going to be a horrible opener just didn't seem worth the trouble. After hearing how that the weekend turned out like I knew it would with the predicted wind I'm happy I stayed home.

I had some issues to work on with the boat with a dead battery, and just want to get some work done on it before I bring it up for the summer. I'm going to attach one more downrigger, and I think I've got that figured out now but I need to do a little reinforcing of a spot in my boat where they didn't add plywood underneath the aluminum on the gunnel. It's just towards the back though and it's a 9 inch gap. It's nice having it home though so I don't have to feel like I'm rushed or losing fishing time when I work on the boat.

Later, Ryan

After the Friday night forecast I skipped Saturday. Got to the cabin Sunday afternoon about when the sun came out and the wind went down and switched. A good bite going at the Morris Pt gap and the west end of Pine Sunday p.m and Monday. Weren't many fish shallow and mostly small--biggest was an 18" but most kept seemed to be 13-14. Marked lots of larger fish in 24 feet and deeper but got no takers at that depth. The guys anchored in 15-18' seemed to do better than the boats moving. As crummy as the weather had been, I was real pleased with the bite.

Figures, my buddy called and said that the weather really got descent right after we left on Sunday. Oh well, we caught fish (and froze) but still had a great time.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.
