I left Duluth at 4:30 a.m., destination Lake Gogebic to meet up with my dad for the day. We were fishing before 8 and it didn't take long to find the infamous 13" Lake Gogebic walleye. The lake was somewhat calm this morning and the sun was shining, a combination that doesn't lead to productive fishing on this lake. We started in 15 ft. of water with slip bobbers, jigs and crank baits. Slip bobbers seemed to be the ticket until the wind picked up around noon.

Lake Gogebic can whip into a frenzy quickly and my dad and I fish out of a 50 year old 12 ft. aluminum Starcraft with a 5.5 horse motor. Not a good combination for getting off a nasty lake in a hurry grin. Once the wind picked up, we got out of the whitecaps and began to drift the east shore with Lindy rigs and started to pick up some fish. Green beads and a silver blade seemed to be the ticket, landing us 2 decent northerns, a smallie and a dozen or so eyes.

We finished the day with over 25 eyes, keeping a small meal to bring back to Duluth. Oh ya, I also brought home a wicked sunburn! grin

How did everyone else do?

Same here Nate, I went to Palmroy and LG with some mixed results. I didn't catch one female, all males at both lakes, not even close to the #'s previous years. I have been having great success this year working the shorelines and rock humps on Gile Flowage in Hurley tossing #11 raps.

Oops, I forgot to mention that. Every single one of those walleyes was a male. First time that has ever happened on opening day.

Well how's everyone doing? I've heard some good reports of bass being caught in the Watersmeet area, as well as some nice fish coming out of Beaten's lake.

Haven't been over since opener, but am hoping to make a trip in the next week.

    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.
    • Manafort was dumped quicker than a cheap date.   #pence2018
    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?    
    • You dont care about his statements on the 2nd amendment or his ties with radical mooslims as you put it?  
    •   I don't reside in his district and have no power to vote for or against him so I don't spend much of my free time thinking about him.
    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
