Well I was not able to make it out for the MN opener so Monday morning was my first shot at walleyes. The lake was like glass when I first started out in the morning but I was able to have a nice “walleye chop” shortly after. I fished some shallower cabbage, 8-12 fow, pitching jigs and plastics. The northerns and bass were very active but I wasn’t able to get the walleyes dialed in. I did manage a nice 16″ walleye and 13″ crappie for a meal, releasing all other fish caught.
The surface temps have dropped from last week 5-7 degrees but I expect things to warm back up again quickly with the forecast we have over the next 5-7 days.
Anyone else have any luck over the opener in the DL area?
