opener reports?

8 posts in this topic

help a brother out, I was going to make it down near Rushford for opener but then my buddy bailed and a party at my house kept me up too late to make it worth driving down on no sleep.

How was the fishing? Anything hatching? I bet the pressure was nuts given the nice weather...

I fished the Vermillion yesterday. Nice rapala hatch going on.:) Caught two 19 inch browns and lost one much larger. Very nice day to get out.

I caught a 21" female brown on a worm yesterday. Lip hooked and released to catch another day. Also caught a 13" rainbow stocker and kept that for the frying pan.

Sunday's catch

Might take my son to the Vermillion after dinner. Check out a new stretch that has been on my mind for a while.

Honestly I spend more time in Western WI but felt compelled to fish MN for the opener. Set a tradition. Now that we have Jan 1 pre-season, perhaps the opener is less of an ordeal? I get to southeast a couple of times each month Jan-Feb, then the first Saturday in March rolls along and I go play in western WI more.

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
