Fishing Opener?

Recommended Posts

So is anybody going to fish the opener? We have been getting yard work done so we can go. Hope this rain quits and it warms up.

HI PHYL, I plan on fishing some time during opener if the weather cooperates. I've always had more luck the weekend after opener, but I like the excitement of opener. Good Luck Hope you Catch a Big one.

Hi Mary! Our weather here is not looking real good for the opener either but then you never know. Haven't heard from you for awhile - thought maybe you took up golf. grin.gif

Golf now thats funny, tryed it once and don't plan on doing it again. So far we have spent 13 days up at the camper getting every thing ready for the year. Going up again this weekend of course. Went out fishing one day from shore and caught a lot of fish. Anything big enough to keep we couldn't keep yet. It was a lot of fun after the long winter of no fishing. I try to check in at least once a day. Good Luck this weekend lets hope the weather cooperates.

Well, after watching the weather report for this weekend I am thinking fishing in the hot tub is looking really good. The only good thing is I did manage to get the yard mowed before it starts raining - that is so that I can mow it again when it quits raining. Hope the weatherman is wrong and wish you the best of fishing. grin.gif

Well we didn't fish during opener, but I have fished some since then. My middle daughter came up one day and fished with me. She caught just guessing about a 3lb Walleye. I caught one also smaller then hers. She had a bigger one on but broke the line before she got it landed. I took pictures I'll have to try and post them after I get them developed. I've been spending a lot of time up at our camper. Every morning and evening I go out and cast off the dock. I've been catching a lot of small Northrens and Bass. I seen a school of Perch one day so I went and got my ultra light with a slipp bobber and tryed to catch some, but all I'd catch was Northren and a darn Bullhead.

Well, we have not made it out yet! It was so miserably wet and cold we skipped opening weekend. Then this Sat. it started pouring so we went to a horse sale. (Of course we found a horse to buy.) Then Sunday they kept saying 60% chance of thunderstorms and it would get really cold and windy and then clear up so we cleaned the barn instead. So hopefully this weekend will be better.

    • A gill getter jig(horizontal) and a "flipper" jig(vertical) are the first two to go on the line for sunfish.   Crappies are kinda my kryptonite, so i usually throw the box at them till something works. I am still a meat fisherman, plastics have been very productive at times however.
    • but ya have yer smurf glass there and it's ready to use too!!!
    • Was at Long Point this past weekend. Lots of small fish, no slots from us......
    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.
