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.

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!

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl

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,
