I usually avoid Government Point around opener because it seems to be the place that attracts 8 billion boats. I have always done my best on Woman Lake by fishing away from the crowds.

If you have not yet mastered shallow water crank bait trolling, I think you owe yourself a shot at it. Especially after dark. Look at the map and look for shallow flats or shoreline breaks and troll them. Opening weekend is NOT too early to be doing this. I have had some so-so openers on Woman, and some outstanding memorable ones as well.

I spend the majority of my time chasing walleyes but my experience with Woman Lake Crappies isn't so much knowing where to fish them as it is knowing WHEN to fish them.

Otter Bay is no secret for the crappies. However, if you are there at the wrong time you will be pretty bored. Sometimes the "crappie run" matches up nicely with the opener and we catch crappies by day and walleyes by night.

Since you have a cabin on the lake (as does my family), I suggest the following for walleyes: begin by using lighted slip bobbers on "typical" reefs and humps that top off shallower than 12 feet. Experiment and move around. You will eventually catch a walleye or two. Then, as you get to know the bottom of the lake, expand to long line trolling shallow shad raps over larger areas under 10 feet. You will dial them in.

This will be my first opener in 7 years where I will NOT be on Woman Lake. I am excited to open with the buddies on Mille Lacs but I am going to be missing Woman Lake too, that is for sure. It is looking like I won't be up to Woman until memorial day weekend.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      Guessing u aren't from the 218. I went 2 the Virginia n Chisholm lucky 7s today n both locations had shiners.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks
