Opening day techniques

Recommended Posts

Since the water temps should continue to climb before the 14th, will the old, reliable jig and minnow combo be the ticket or will spinners and crawlers shine?  I'm thinking about snell/ spinner rigs, but unsure if heavier mono or fluoro is better?  Why would fluoro be a good choice when it sinks?  I realize it's supposed to be more invisible to the fish, but is it good, if it sinks into the bottom muck at slower speeds?  Seems like a lot of companies are using it.  Any thoughts?

If the wind is up I will be going with spinner-leech or large minnows Red tails or Rainbows.

I've got a feeling the early ice out and warm water is going to lead to a huge bust on opener.  Or at least it won't be a crushfest like it has been in past years when ice out came a week or two before opener and we were slaying them in 5 feet of water.

Water in the metro is around 60=pretty normal for this time of year. Mono is almost always transparent enough. Pick flouro when you want the line to sink or you need abrasion resistance. BTW mono stretches less than flouro. 

Good luck!

    • those are a different type blueberry plant then i'm used to seeing up north with the wild berries.   I just order 4 10 lb boxes of blueberries. thee from Michigan!!!!!!
    • I have some of them to but don't have a glue what it is.
    • American Tanager. I had one hanging on my suet feeder most of the day yesterday. haven't seen it today, but I sure hope he sticks around!!!!!
    • Not sure what this bird is called. It only wanted grape jelly. The orioles were thick on the feeders, there were a dozen at a time in the crappy weather. This was in douglas county.
    • I put in my tomatoes and peppers last weekend and built the greenhouses. All week it was nice and toasty in there. I opened one end to vent mid days. They were thriving nicely, leaf tips up. It is suppose to drop to 34 here tonight.  4th year blueberries in front. I pinched blooms the first 3 years. Finally get to try them this year. My rabbit fence is 18" and the snow was deeper. The rabbits put blueberry bush tips on their menu, all vegetative growth below the snow didn't get touched. I am going to re-fence taller around the blueberries by fall. 
    • I just had a bird at my suit that is the size of a cardinal. It was bright red with black wings. Anyone have a idea what it is? 
    • got back from bowstring and feeders were all empty. lotta birds here also. cool that you had some redstarts in. I have seen 2 so far this year. 
    • to bad Berrios couldn't get that last out in the bottom of the 5th to get the win. 15 runs and he couldn't get there. bummer!!!!
    • sweet!!!!!!!! lookin good!!!!!!!!!
