But is it to early to start dreaming about open water?

I saw an In-fisherman episode tonight (open water). Man, this could be a long three months.

Being I haven't caught a fish since October 14, I'm going crazy whether it's open water or ice! crazy.gif

I am though really looking forward to the open water season this year. Got a boat last fall that I'm just itching to get out on the water again! Can't wait to get trolling rods and line counter reels to troll cranks which is something I've not really done before. My kids are getting older and more independent (which means more fishing time for me!). My son will be coming up on 4yrs old this summer, so I'm really looking forward to getting him out on a few panfish bites!

Call me crazy too, but I'm going a bit bezerk waiting for the open water season too! grin.gif

Mr. Crazy,

Yep, I've been playing with my new Shimano Calais 201A... ($380 reel I rec'd as a present grin.gif) Bring on the open water. Till then a weekly ice fishing venture will have to suffice. It doesn't cure the itch, but it helps relieve a few symptons.

Rost, They might put us in the same rubber room. I was down in KY last week and my brother just got back from his cabin at Cumberland Lake. Made me think lots about open water. I would have loved to get out there, but I was there for a funeral.

I like ice fishing, but no where near as much as open water. I've got a fishing buddy that lives just south of Orlando in the winter and he wants me to come down for some fishing in Feb. I'm thinking I'm going to take him up on it. Then the Rainy opens up in late March, some local Looper fishing on Lake Superior, maybe a trip to Redwing, then the MN opener, and were off again.

If your thinking about that you better enjoy a few more activities outside this time of year including shooting a few more of those coyotes in your neighborhood! grin.gif

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
