How do you prefer to fish ML this time of year - depth, structure, bait, presentations? Just looking for your ideas.

Rocks at sunset and after dark. Drifting rock ledges or sand mid day depth depends on wind could be as shallow as 6 feet or as deep as 24. I'm guessing with the early ice out we may even run out to the mud

I will be starting on the north end, out of Barnacles ... may even start at midnight trolling shallow cranks in the sand. Otherwise minnows and leeches Saturday morning working the breaks, moving to other structures. I will check out the closer mud flats too.
Will be watching bobbers Saturday evening.
Do it all over again on Sunday. Early weather forecast looks great too!!! Good luck.

I take a chair, a few buddies and a cooler and watch people at the launch. If I'm not doing that I'm slip bobbering.

I'm curious about folks coming to mille lacs this opener,all catch and release,I'm sure this will effect some folks plans,nothing better than a fresh walleye fry...for the folks that depend on tourism I hope they ring the bell this year on opening,they need it.

You can fish the pond just about any way you like this year on opener. Bobbers troll cranks lindy rigs and jigs with minnow or leech. Cast rippin raps or jigging raps. Most openers guys are up on the North end sand but with early ice out I think fish will be all over. Rocks sand mud. If you are not graphing fish move. I will be starting shallow and moving out deeper and the reverse that as the sun goes down. Will be doing all of the above for presentations this weekend can't wait.
