I really don't fish Waukenabo much, I usually hit Esquagamah. So when you are on Waukenabo, do you target Walleyes ? Or catch them while fishing for other fish? Eveytime I 've been there all I caught were Norhterns.

Thanks for any info.

I'm going for eyes.

They are easy to catch as sunfish.

Squag's eyes are much nicer.

I may also hit Esquagagamah on opener if my main plan falls through. Round is also an option, but I imagine opening weekend, Round is somewhat busy. Anyways, goodluck and more importantly good fishing.

Do you think that Rat will be crowded? I have not heard any reports there. Has it been fished pretty hard this winter?

You can have Rat.It got hit hard over the last couple winters when the word got out.

There's still some nice fish there but it's not a lake I really want to work with only 1 hole and mega weeds.

Round in not bad at predawn hours.

I'm gonna hit her by 4 bells and stay into sunrise then hit Sqaug as she has a great day bite.Then back to Roung at 6-10 .Back to Round in the A.M.

fished on Wauk on opener. Had a lot of fun taking my daughter out for Panfish and hammerhandles. Need to spend more time there to find the eyes I think. I may try round this weekend, but it seems like a tight area for parking if its crowded.

good luck

Round was jam packed on openers after the sun came up other wise there was only 1 other boat.

That will subside this weekend.

I had a tough time finding biting eyes on squag too.We did good on Round between 5-8 am and 8-10 pm.

Round is so clear the day bite is tough unless a storm is moving in then all bets are off.

      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎

      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).

      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓

      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.
