So, we are a month away from bass opener. Does everyone have their plans in place? If so, what are they?

No plans yet, actually have never bass fished MN since I am new to the area but getting pretty excited. I know that the next 4 weeks are going to drag!

Got a club tourny next weekend for WI opener, but for MN opener I will be on a little lake by my cabin no doubt. A month still seems so far away I'm starting to get a little impatient.

I'm really excited this season. I still don't have line on all my rods yet, but I cleaned them last night and got my Shimano spinning reel back from repair. So it's getting there.

I may be going to Aitkin for the bass opener, but he has to get approval from the wife first so who knows. Otherwise I'll follow champion198elite who's following Tonkabass:)

I'll be in the Detroit lakes area. In laws family going golfing... I'm bringing the boat and might accidentally forget the clubs. I'm not sure what lakes I'll hit yet. I'm open to suggestions as I'm not too familiar with that area.

I'll be hitting one or more of the SW Metro lakes probably in Carver County area. Tough for alot of boats to get into those small ones and I just love the quietness and scenery out there. (not to mention they hold a few fish)

I have a little sleeper lake in WI that I am WAY excited to hit on WI opener!!

Odds are that on opener, I will be either on Tonka trying to stop Tonka from following me smile. Or I will be up in the Mille Lacs area, or on Green in Spicer.

Hopefully I will be chasing smallies up in Ely on the regular opener since bass season is open north and east of hwy 53. On the regular bass opener I will probably be around park rapids looking for more smallies.

I will be fishing a lake in the alexandria area. Which particular one is a good question. there is to many to pick from (which is not a bad problem to have).

9 days 7 hours 39 minutes 44 seconds until the fishing opener you mean.

I too will be on a small lake in Wisconsin. I guess you could call it a sleeper as I rarely see anyone fishing there. I'm curious as to the other sleeper lakes though: almost all the small lakes have some nice bass in them.

If it is possible I will be chasing smallies on either the Rum or the Sippi and if not on E/W Rush which is the site of our first club tourney this year.

You might want to contact vman, sounds like they want to change the bass management in the Chetek change.

I'll be on a little canoe only lake. Weedy and sandy bottom, clear water, lots of baitfish, and big bass! I'm avoiding the crowds this year!

    • 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.
    • That should make things interesting
