Just got back from fishing Kab this morning for the walleye opener. Lots of fish caught. We caught 8 fish over 20in between two of us. It was a great time!!! Hope everyone is having a safe opener and had half as much fun as I did this morning. Cheers!!! laugh.giflaugh.gif

We fished for northerns with artificial all day and the fish were pretty sluggish. Lots of lazy follows...seen 2 or 3 10lb plus fish, the rest were all under that. Big change from fall when they hit a lure 5 times in a row!@

Jigs and minnow, green, purple did the best for us. 8-10 ft of water.

I was feeling pretty good about a 22 1/2, 19+ and a 16 1/2 until our friends came in with 13 keepers. They were fishing shallow at dusk using a jig and a minnow. They said they changed color often and made sure their minnow was lively. We caught ours during the day using traditional walleye tactics. Sunday we did not get even a nibble.

You ever work that slow slope on the back current behind Moxie?I parked a houseboat there once & drilled them for 3 days straight on crawlers.

I also did good there on Namikan in Old Dutch bay .Pigs Island treated me pretty good too.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
