agate reef is a good early season spot. when the mpls fire dept had there fishing tournament there, the winning fish was caught there 7 out of the 10 or so years that we had the tournament at agate bay resort. your depth range is right on, but don't be afraid to try some different depths shallower and deeper. good luck..............tom fellegy

A few years back we pulled rapps off of Agate on opener and had a blast we caught over thirty eyes and a 10lb northern an 3:00 am that was intresting what a battle. we used sinking rapps and trolled 8-12 fow when the rap was barley bouncin of the bottom we had our best luck.

Thanks Tom!!

I'll give Agate a try, around 7am or so I'll probably head to Fischer's. I know quite a few who did well there last year.

If nothing, it's time to hit the Sand.

I know I'm gonna start something but their is only one color chartuse and the rap of choice would be a clown.

Elwood- not the right colors for my boat, Redand brightg pink are my colors choices, for raps I use a white rap or a purple perch color. I have fallin in love w/ them on this lake. I may have to try a clown though... why not.

I don't have any Purple Perch. Time to pick up a few and give them a try.

I dont have the purple perch color also, so you know what its time to add more color to my tackle box, though it will be hard to see it over all that chartuse grin.gif

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
