So, we are a month away from bass opener. Does everyone have their plans in place? If so, what are they?

No plans yet, actually have never bass fished MN since I am new to the area but getting pretty excited. I know that the next 4 weeks are going to drag!

Got a club tourny next weekend for WI opener, but for MN opener I will be on a little lake by my cabin no doubt. A month still seems so far away I'm starting to get a little impatient.

I'm really excited this season. I still don't have line on all my rods yet, but I cleaned them last night and got my Shimano spinning reel back from repair. So it's getting there.

I may be going to Aitkin for the bass opener, but he has to get approval from the wife first so who knows. Otherwise I'll follow champion198elite who's following Tonkabass:)

I'll be in the Detroit lakes area. In laws family going golfing... I'm bringing the boat and might accidentally forget the clubs. I'm not sure what lakes I'll hit yet. I'm open to suggestions as I'm not too familiar with that area.

I'll be hitting one or more of the SW Metro lakes probably in Carver County area. Tough for alot of boats to get into those small ones and I just love the quietness and scenery out there. (not to mention they hold a few fish)

I have a little sleeper lake in WI that I am WAY excited to hit on WI opener!!

Odds are that on opener, I will be either on Tonka trying to stop Tonka from following me smile. Or I will be up in the Mille Lacs area, or on Green in Spicer.

Hopefully I will be chasing smallies up in Ely on the regular opener since bass season is open north and east of hwy 53. On the regular bass opener I will probably be around park rapids looking for more smallies.

I will be fishing a lake in the alexandria area. Which particular one is a good question. there is to many to pick from (which is not a bad problem to have).

9 days 7 hours 39 minutes 44 seconds until the fishing opener you mean.

I too will be on a small lake in Wisconsin. I guess you could call it a sleeper as I rarely see anyone fishing there. I'm curious as to the other sleeper lakes though: almost all the small lakes have some nice bass in them.

If it is possible I will be chasing smallies on either the Rum or the Sippi and if not on E/W Rush which is the site of our first club tourney this year.

You might want to contact vman, sounds like they want to change the bass management in the Chetek change.

I'll be on a little canoe only lake. Weedy and sandy bottom, clear water, lots of baitfish, and big bass! I'm avoiding the crowds this year!

    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
