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!

    • That is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
