You do know that calhoun is electric motors only, right? Anyway, this will be my first opener with my own boat too, but I don't believe I'll be taking it out. I'm gonna try to avoid the crowds and hit a small river up north with the canoe. Good luck to everyone on the opener!

I am not to sure where I'll be on opener. It is also my first year with my OWN boat. cool.gif Usually I have to pick through my dads or brothers boats. I live in an apt, so just bought a little 14 ft with a 6 horse johnson. floats and runs great, just something to get off of shore is all i wanted for the time being. And she'll do just that! So, no, i have never fished open water in the metro area myself on opener, not even sure where to start for eyes. Usually find myself up north at the cabin on opener. so i too will take any advice laugh.gif

Straying from the norm this year.......usually hit Mille Lacs on the opener but may stick around here and hit a smaller home town lake.

Mille Lacs will be the weekend after opener. grin.gif

Hopefully its warmer than last year, but at this rate I'm not holding my breath.

I will be in the boat fishing straight out from one of my brothers docks. We are all alone, and catch all the eyes we want. Who says"Fishing is always better on the other side of the lake"? grin.gif

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
