Missing the opener

Recommended Posts

this is one that I'm happy to miss, but even happier that I can look forward to next year's.

Had one of those cardiac events on 4/15, 2 days after I turned 56. Out of the clear blue (almost). blush.gif

Hope brighter days are lying ahead! Enjoy every moment in the boat, once you're back fishing!

Good LUck!

of that there is no doubt. Only missing 'cause the cardiologist wants a piece of my A$$ before he greenlights me to crank in the boat.

Me and the grandsons will probably shorefish on the RLR instead. cool.gif

Don't worry as the season winds on it just gets better and better. Plus opening weekend on Upper Red Lake is not good for the blood pressure.

Thanks, folks.

Ya know, it's interesting. MY BP, cholesterol and weight have always been pretty good. Exercise, too.

I had some chest pains, went in and got it checked out. They ran a batch of tests and determined one of the artery's was 97% blocked. They shoved in two stents.

Why? Heredity and 35 years worth of humpers. And I had quit the smokes about 3 weeks before this happened.

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?
