Tick Tock Tick Tock

Only 1 or 2 more days before many of us leave town for the walleye opener.

I've had my boat out several times this year but finally took a little time today to get my walleye gear ready ---- respooled a few reels, tied on a few jigs, checked my cranks and plastics, etc. Felt good to be looking at the walleye gear again.

I'm getting anxious and am hoping to leave town on Thursday night. Anyone else already got their mind on the lake and not on business at home grin

Here's wishing you all a happy and safe fishing opener!

I just finished re-spooling 6 reels. Boat is finally all buttoned up and ready. Batteries charged, bearings greased.

Unfortunately I will be working Thurs and Fri, but will hopefully get the line wet 2 or 3 times on Saturday. I've been a little distracted all week.

It's a long season that officially begins Saturday. Other than the usual anticipation, it's just another day on the water for myself and clients this weekend.

Good luck to all!

A few years ago my first trip of the year was on Lake Erie --- right after we got to our first spot I was laying on my back under the console trying to trace wires to find out why the GPS crapped out. It was really wavey, we couldn't see shore, and I thought I was going to be seasick. Not fun. It turned out that a simple fix by the battery solved the GPS problem but it took 20 minutes to figure that out grin Not a great way to start the trip

Every year it's the same thing for me, Does anyone think I may be a "procrastinator"?

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
