I'm coming up that way hopefully this weekend and was wondering what the mighty Clit may have produced over opener. If nothing, can anyone give some advice on where would be a good place to try? Thanks!

Clitherall was slow from those I talked to.

This week's better forecasted weather should help the bite unless another cold hurricane rolls in... smirk.gif

Was out on Clitherall Saturday. Water temps 43-44 degrees. Way too cold. Not much action anywhere. Even the tiny sunfish weren't biting. I didn't see any boats fishing the main bodies of water. The wind was just too horrible. Fished for 2 1/2 hours and called it. Was not worth freezing my butt. Ended up with 3 crappies and 1 sunfish. With the cold water temps and crappy weather we're having, I would say it'll be until Memorial Day until something starts happening...if it warms up. Chuck, we didn't have the ambition to drive to the Sportsmans Saturday night. Will have to do it next time.

I've losing faith in you MercMan. tongue.gif

2.5 hrs...no ambition?? I suppose you were sitting in that nice, quiet bay out of the wind too, seeing you got a few panfish. LOL

Oh I'm quite certain that we'll find our way to the Sportsman at least once this weekend. Maybe I'll run into some of you there.

I'm getting older & smarter, Chuck. I've spent my time out in the Clitherall wind. 30 years worth. Yep, you know exactly where I was fishing/freezing. I think Dad was half froze also and lost his ambition Saturday. I mentioned going into town to see what was going on and he didn't even acknowledge the opportunity. It was too much fun sitting out at the hunting shack watching the turkeys come into the feeders.

BLB, you should see how FAT those buggers are! wink.gif Had two toms at the feeder at the same time. Both had 8-10 inch beards. Also had a couple of jakes and at least one hen. Next year I'm threatening to do a combination turkey hunting/fishing opener weekend. Sure was fun to watch them and see how alert and skittish they are. A guy learns an awful lot by just watching.

      Has anyone here had any luck on Rice Lake yet this year? All that rain a couple of weeks ago made the water level go way up and fishing opener for us was a complete bust ( although apparently someone on the lake caught a 31" walleye according to a DNR officer).   I'll be up there for at least part of the long weekend this weekend. Looking forward to some fishing. I'm contemplating targeting the bay that Morning Star Resort is on for some walleye. I don't claim to be an expert in fishing or fish behavior but it's early season so shallower seems to be better than deeper dropoffs like we would normally target during the summer. Forecasts I've seen suggest targeting bays too. Anyone have thoughts on that?   Good luck to anyone out there this weekend! Hopefully the fishing is back to normal after the weird start to the season.

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.
