ScottPugh,

I assume that is the boat that was for sale in Wisconsin. If so, you beat me to it. Great boat from what I saw on paper, never got over there to see it in person, and I think you got a great deal even if you paid the asking price. Awesome boat!! Enjoy!!

Joejarl,

Sounds like our luck was a bit better, but nothing to brag about either. My son and I found the Walleye in 6'-9' and fatheads were the ticket on a green jig. But, we caught way more fish on the dock than on the lake. Kept 6 Walleye, 8 nice sized Perch...released a bunch of 12"-13.5" Walleye (maybe 15 of them), a 20" and a 24.5". I had the knack for Pike, probably caught 10 of them, but didn't keep any. Throw in a couple of Rock Bass and a few smaller Perch. So we were fishy all day, but again nothing to brag about. Sunday, completely different story, hard to find any biters at all. My buddies finally found some in 22'-25' and got a couple to bite. But we were headed home early for Mothers Day.

Great weekend on BSL though!!!

That is odd, we typically have good luck off the dock on opener, and didn't catch one Walleye last year. Couple of snot rockets (Pike) but that was it. But we had great fishing out on the lake, best year in a long time. Figure on throwing out a splash brite at 12:00am opener, just out of tradition.

Heading up to BSL in the morning, same schedule as you Joejarl. Pretty curious where the Walleye will be found this year, late ice and a cold front the day before opener. Don't know if it is better to start shallow or deep, or where to start. But it will be open water fishing, so it will be fun.

Or find a good counter height one and shorten the legs. The ones I have seen and used, have cheap legs on them that can be cut easily down to size.

I just saw an ad on Craigslist for 2 like new Walleye line counter combos, decent price. I think they were Gander rods with Diawa reels, so not premium brands, but good brands for a decent price.

Opener Predictions

Hey All,

With this messed up MN Spring, what are your predictions for the MN fishing opener, as far as fishing is concerned.

In my 50 plus years, I have never seen a Spring quite like this. 2 weeks ago, it looked like there was zero chance of most lakes in MN to even be ice-out for opener, and now it looks like most will be. So a late thaw, and then a long period of very warm temps. Just wondering what that will do with the fishing? Quick warmup tells me the spawn will be quick, kind of all at once, instead of spread out.

With the weather being pretty stable leading up to opener, that tells me the fishing should be good.

My prediction is that Walleye fishing will be good, but shallower than most years. Crappie fishing should be fantastic. And Pike fishing will be slow.

Any guesses?

I was schooled on this a bit by a conservation officer a few years back. The spawn is not 100% by temperature, it is a factor, but not the only factor. Length of day has some to do with it also. They have documented scientific proof that fish will spawn under the ice on late ice out years. I did not ask the question on whether that affects the actual spawn or not though. But would still expect a late spawn, and your concerns are warranted.

Kind of makes the mid-June Vermilion trip look more promising though.
