opener predictons

Recommended Posts

I recall a few years back...it was -30 on opener, and I counted about 20 shacks only versus 100000 on a usual opener. Fishing was good laugh but to answer your question, i've done better on colder days/cold fronts for trout. Thats just me.

When a cold front hits I take off the walleye rigs and put on the northern rigs or the rainbow trout rigs. This really does work for open water but ia am still collecting data for hard water season. Just not enough personal data to prove it yet....just started hard water fishing for rainbow a bout three years ago.

Any ideas on how this impending cold front will effect inland lake opener for lakers browns and rainbows?

I came to this forum to ask the exact same thing, but then saw this thread.

Forecast shows 18F at sunrise, and dropping down to 8 by noon with 20 mph wind for Saturday. It seems the front as actually arriving early morning and sets in by mid-afternoon.

I'm a firm believer that when you get the chance to fish, you fish, and wotry to adjust to the weather, moon, etc. while you're out. I'm not one who can pick and choose which days/times I'll go fish. Still, I am just curious about what the skilled, experienced laker fishermen are expecting. Particularly for the Arrowhead region.

The last two openers were cloudy with mild wind, and both were good for me.

    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!
