About Last May

Recommended Posts


Boy, I hope this year's May opener comes with better weather! Last year I fished the Willmar/Spicer area and we didn't even bother putting the boat in! Cold NW winds with mixed in drizzle. bur2.gif Those low, fast moving grey clouds really took its toll. It was nothing like the year before when the bugs were out in force and the Walleyes were almost as thick!

We tried a few creek inlets to various lakes from shore but couldn't come up with a single fish. A few hard core guys in boats were out in the elements....They really had to have loved it!

Heres to a great opener to come! May the May weather be good to us this year!

Anybody else care to remember last May? RollEyes.gif ...Or maybe forget it? Twitch.gif

WET NETS!

Did opener weekend from shore at Osakis, and I recall it being chilly in the morning, nice in the afternoon, and chilly in the evening. Caught fish, though. Two days worth of sunny meals and a couple nice largemouth. Memorial week was great! The weather up at Kab cooperated nicely - chilly mornings, clear afternoons, evening storms, and the bugs weren't out yet. Bunch of walleye once we broke down and hired a guide.

BRRRRRRR I get goosebumps just thinking
bout last year's opener!! We really did
have it better than most, since we put
the bimini up with the side windows on,
stuck the boat's nose in the wind, and cranked up the Buddy heater between the console. Felt pretty lucky whenever
someone would pass by sitting out in the
elements. My biggest gripe was that those
cold beverages didn't taste the same!!!!

The wife and I fished on Artichoke. It was a good thing we had our carhart coverhalls because we found the walleyes along the wind swept shore.(cold and windy) Anchored out a ways(needed both anchors) and casted in did really good. We could see them chasing the bait fish in a foot of water and when the white caps would come in it would push a few right out of the water. It was the coolest think I have ever seen while fishing. Unfortunatly no pictures. The camera(luckly a disposable) is at the bottom. The wifes hands were a little cold and a wave hit and there it went.

Three years ago was the best when we were on the Big stone opener(end of April)in our tee shirts in the middle of the night catch some walleyes on lighted bobbers.

Last year was one of the coldest I can remember on Gull Lake, the only one colder was about two or three years ago. So cold and wind that we put our snowmobile helmets on while driving across the lake to stay dry and warm. Talk about getting harassed by friends and family.

This year will be better it has to be (right?). Oh well it will just be good to get on t he water!

    • 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.

    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
