Had a great time this weekend! was part of a group in cabins 5 and 8. Fishing was ok, got into a few bass, perch, and I caught the only 2 walleye in our group, lol. if anyone is thinking of vacationing, stay at woodland. Cabins are great, spacious, and have a touch of home in them. I felt as if I was in someone's private cabin with the cool nicknacs on the walls. Thanks woodland and i recommend this place!!

Hey BassAkwards,

Thanks for the nice comments! Is this Andy?

What a beautiful weekend for the opener. How can you go wrong, with weather like we had? A couple of our groups got into the walleye pretty good. I think the big 'eye was a 23" caught in the middle of the afternoon in the reeds about 6 fow. Go figure. confused.gif

Best luck was sunset and later off Reinharts Point and on some of the shallower flats.

My son and I had our chance last night, and did well from about 9 to 10pm (he had school today, so we had to head in) We caought 7 'eyes during the "powerhour", took a few home.

He had the big eye at about 19". We caught them all in 5 fow and less.

Thanks again for the nice comments.

Good Luck,

Steve

have to agree with you. we stayed on cabin 4 "The Big One" over opener for the second year in a row. the weather was much better this year along with the fishing. but with the great accomidations and the "night life" in the area the fishing doesn't matter. although we did catch a few eyes and tons of bass and perch. i would fully recommend Woodland resort to anyone big or small party. We are going back next year!!!!! thanks for the great opener!!!! cabin #4

Thanks fishing nurse! We have enjoyed having you guys here the last couple of years!

The walleye are still hanging right where you found them over the weekend. We are getting them on cranks and plastics, right after sunset.

Thanks again for the nice comments!

Have a nice summer,

Steve

      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.
