Good morning. It is a little gloomy, but the rain is welcome. I was out cruising around last night in the new boat and I have finally started to get the "itch". Now that the turkey stuff is put away (it might come back out in a couple of weeks), I can concentrate on these fish. I know that once opener hits, we (our fishing guides) will be on the water almost everyday so this lull before the storm is kind of nice. And with the weather a little sloppy, it makes a person (at least this person) more productive. The boat will be ready, now it's time to rig and rig and get everything in its' place. We will be fishing Gull on opening morning along with the rest of you. We have a group out of Lost Lake Lodge that we have been fishing with for the last number of years. Hard to say if it will be a Fireball and a spot-tail shiner or a Lindy with a spot-tail shiner or red tail chub. I have been quite busy and have not been able to sit down at the baitshop (S&W Bait) to see what the heck she has in those bins right now. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that she will have everything that you and your crew is looking for when it comes to live bait. The incredible thing about S&W Bait is that she very rarely will run out of bait. And that is pretty amazing with all the traffic that comes through the door (ding, ding). By the way, she will be open 24 hours on Friday and a number of our guides will be around all week long. Anyway, good luck/skill and be safe out on the water this season.

Hi Dan, I saw the your new rig while you were fueling up. It looks good. Should be another busy year. Were getting pretty excited too. It's our 32nd opener here with the bait shop. The opener never gets old. It's always fun. It's a sign of a new year and it is great seeing lots of old and new faces. Good luck to you and your crew on another busy walleye season.

I will be on Gull as well. I will be stopping for bait when I get there on Friday evening(at sportland).

Dan,

I will be fishing with someone you know(I think). He lives in Hole in the day bay, Byron W. There will be twelve us fishing out of his residence. See ya on the water!!

Hello Walleyenutz, We looking forward to seeing your group. If you guys are fishing at Byron's, your group probably won't even need to leave the dock for good fishing.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
