I tossed a dart and it hit on whiteface for opener. I have fished it once before in the center finger. Has anyone fished the other fingers? Is it tough to navigate?I thinking that most fish will be up where the river dumps in. Any thoughts would be great.

I fish whiteface quite a bit I fish the south side and troll with spinners. I a small boat you wont have much to worry about but like any resevoir there are plenty of obstacles. Seems to have a better bigger class of walleyes

There sure is alot of structure to fish!!!! Do you fish by the dam?I fish Island alot and do very well. Would you say to fish whiteface the same?As far as wind blown points and islands? Are you fishing whiteface on opener?

I have a cabin on Island so usually Im fishing there but venture to boulder or whiteface when the traffic on Island gets to me. I think fishing on whiteface is better than island for sure and you do catch bigger keepers also. Most fish I catch on island are under 16" but whiteface seems to have a popular class that are 16" to 18". The structure of whiteface seems more fishable it seems easier to find fish unlike Island that has a lot of structure that doesnt hold fish. If I were you I would move my dart down and fish that other lake.

Just watch out for rocks. I was up at the cabin last weekend and the water is LOW!!!! Not to say it will be this bad on opener, but it wont be able to come up that much in 3 weeks.

Island is between 3' and 4' low. Which is higher than it was last year. The last two years we have got the rain we needed the last 2 weeks before the opener. We can only hope the same will happen this year. Or the tyee will stay in the garage for a couple extra weeks. Its even easier to drink barley pops when somebody else is drivin'!!!.

fisherlanding, with the water so low I do not think there will be much flow from the river. They might be up in that bay but I would look for shallow wind blown points and structure. There is a lot of structure and yes watch out for rocks. The locals mark some shallow reefs with jugs so watch out for them. good luck.

yukon, I didn't know if the walleyes tried to run up the river or not. I was thinking at the mouth of the river as a staring point. I'll check it out but I think you might be right with the water level being low. Have you ever fished the east or west finger before? Are they worth checking out? What about near the dam? Just looking for a few places to try you know. laugh.gif

I have never spent a lot of time over by the dam. Most of my time has been in the middle finger. I have never had to stray far from the campground access to find walleyes

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!
