How did you do???

Recommended Posts

Was on Waconia at 12:01. Tossing raps at the north side of the island found 2 14 inchers around 3:00. Tried slip bobbering with leeches and chubs with no luck too. Looking forward to hearing some success stories! So, how'd you do??

Went out to Sabre Lake and only caught bullheads all night with jigs and minnows...was fishing off of shore and a group of guys came over with waders and walked right across my line and stood right in front of me so I couldnt cast!!!They had no respect whatsoever and stayed there for about two hours...I eventually casted right over them and snagged one in the waders lol...they were really big jerks about it too...this is the bad thing about opener...people like this who have no respect for other people!

Saturday, Hook/Swan, 9 boats, 2 bullheads and 2 crappies. Several hits but no takers.

Sunday, Greenleaf/Erie, marked all kinds of fish but nothing would bite.

My crew boated about 200 Crappies this weekend, from depths of 35 feet to 3 feet of water. Fish ran up to 13".

C&R was the key.

I opened on Winnie for the 29th year. Saturday was a little slow but managed 20 walleye over a 12 hour period. The rain started at around 1 PM and didn't quit until around 8:00 PM.

Lindy rigged for a while with little success. Went to a Northland 1/8 oz. fireball in a firetiger pattern and shiner and hold on. I did speed it up and rip jig for them. This made all the difference in the world.

Sunday I had a nice limit of 15 to 16 3/4 L eyes in 4 1/2 hours with several throw backs in the 18 to 26" range. 6-9 feet along High Banks.
The total for the weekend was 62 eye's using this pattern.

Also, caught a couple dozen perch that actually measured 11 to 12+ inches. It's nice to see some large perch again.

Of course what what a weekend of fishing be like with out the pike cutting off jigs, trying to tie on another and your fingers are so numb you can't hold on to the line.

    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
