Most northern lakes still are snow covered and have at least 30 inches of ice. In order to have an ice free opener we would have to lose a foot of ice each week for the next 3 weeks. Sorry, not going to happen!
My question is, with walleyes and crappies spawning according to water temps, how will this late late spring effect the spawn. Iím sure there will be many areas that will be protected if they are spawning during the opening weeks. Or will they even spawn?

Open water on opener??

If you are planning on fishing open water on the fishing opener you better plan to fish in southern Minn. or on a river. I live in north central Minn. and we are still driving on 30+ inches of snow covered ice. The next 15 day forecast has no 50 degree temps and below freezing every night. That gets us to within 20 days of the opener. There is no way the ice will be off lakes in the Brainerd area and north, especially the larger deep basin lakes. There may be some small dark stained lakes that get close but donít count on it. Itís going to be one of those weird years! If you do come up north for the opener, bring your auger!

Depends on the guide. If he mainly trolls then lots of hours. Most guides I know run main motor 5-10 mins. to a spot and use trolling motors most of the time. Some guide boats have way less hours on the motor than the average Joe pulling his kids around. Most guide boats are a great buy.

Stopped at Frontier this morning. Huge ice chunks and trees coming down river from bank to bank. I'd guess that mess will be at Wheeler Pt tomorrow, very dangerous, be careful.

Question for you guys that live up there or fish the Rainy a bunch. Are there any landings east of the forks we're you can get out on the Rainy and not be effected by the mud and debris? If so any information would be appreciated. I'm heading up tomorrow just because it's the only time I can get away and I need to get out on open water! Thanks!!

Reports are that the Forks broke loose the last couple days, very poor fishing and lots of debris. My question is, How long(days) does it usually take to clear enough that it's fishable again?

Fished Bowstring Saturday, very slow compared to other years, saw very few fish caught. North landing is so low that most boats couldn't get in. South landing is very low too, if you have a bunk trailer and a big boat you will get into trouble.

Just a heads up to anyone planning on going to Bowstring, look out! If you have a bunk trailer or a deep V boat you will not get the boat off the trailer. Water is super skinny for a long way out. A 16 ft with roller trailer and waders might be ok I was just there today.

I know even on good water years, it can be a challenge at times getting out in front of the river or at West Winds. Any concerns this year? Where is the water level compared to normal?

A two inch bait called a puddle jumper on a 1/16th or 1/32 oz jig head, only spring time bait we ever use, fantastic!
