hmmmmm.... hadn't really considered that before now wink.gif. As I have to be off the water around noon (family engagement later in the day tongue.gif) maybe heading out 'early' will help fill the void!

Every year I get out there earlier and earlier - maybe this year I'll just bite the bullet and try for the 12:01 bite.

The 28th? I thought the opener was on the 5th of May. Am I mistaken? Id hate to miss a week of fishing.

Inland WI opener is on May 5th. The Croix opens for both MN and WI residents/license holders on April 28th! Gotta love living on the border!

I'll be there for a midnight excursion... Just wonder where to launch. I am guessing the bluffs will be closed at that time, will probably just go out of Hastings access. I wouldn't mind if we had a calm warm night, topped off w/ a few 'eyes.

Yes, actually it is the 10th of May that the Croix opens and Wisconsin is a week later this year, just like in past years. The WI. crowd is going to have to wait while the MN. crowd gets busy during the true opener.(It is still April right?)! grin.gif

To everybody who plans on heading out for the midnight opener PLEASE be careful. There was a lot of debris floating down the Mississippi this last weekend and I'm sure the Croix is no different. We had a 25'+ tree floating down the river next to us on Saturday. Something like that could end the fun in a hurry.

      Charge your battery after every use. Your not getting enough charging when not running big motor enough. Other option is to move up a size in battery if room. I have ran Interstates for years with no issues.

      Hi - this may not be the exact best spot for this, but

      1). I flyfish, elk and deer hunt out of my simple, clean off grid cabin 11 m S of Ennis.
      Excellent elk, muley, whitetail, and pronghorn opportunities, E slope of Gravelly range. 2 m N of current Wigwam fire - no problem.I have more time than hunting partners and need solid, easy going buddies to hunt with, and or will time share swap with others for access to great hunting.

      2) I have 230+ acres of outstanding pheasant, whitetail, waterfowl, and some turkey just E of Granite Falls MN. If you are local and have bear, deer, turkey, etc., opportunities, especially closer to the Metro, Let's Talk. This land is also for sale, I'm tightening up my footprint and want to build on my Bozeman lot on the Gallatin.

      I am very interested in:
      - whitetail tree stand, including doe management opportunities (especially local for me in zone 610 MN) - gotta fill the freezer!
      - spot and stalk anything anywhere
      - turkey
      - winter southern or warm weather opportunities, including fly fishing..pigs?

      I'll give the noise supressor a try Bob.  Both units were purchased at the same time.    yoppdk- I checked my unit and I don't see any such setting on the 998.  There is a low battery alarm setting, but that is already turned to off.

      This terminal could have been comprised, cracked or corroded to cause this.

      Geese are beginning to flock as I seen a number flying over the past couple days.
