    Who’s going this weekend? What are your planned tactics?

    I’ll be up with my kids but will probably get some adult fishing time too.

    We’ll be on the water on the NE side at midnight on Saturday, trolling cranks like we have the last few years. Should be a good time!

    I know it’s not cool, but me and the boys (11&14) got a spot on a launch out of garrison sports doing the midnight thing! They love ML launches. Were staying at the campground next door to the north.

    I will be there heading out around 5 am Saturday and fishing all day. Going from my place on the south end up to the sand. Throwing everything but the kitchen sink! The key for me is to keep moving and change things up as needed. Good luck to everyone!

    Sounds cool to me especially if I was 11 and 14…

    I remember fishing with my dad and Eddie Silker on his launch back in the early 70’s. You’re giving your kids great memories. Mine revolved being able to drink all the cans of Holiday pop, KFC, and candy bars I wanted. Oh yeah, we caught a bunch of walleyes too!

    Been a number of years since I’ve done a Mille lacs opener. I’ll be out of Red door or Fishers. Most likely trolling cranks. Not sure if I’m ready to commit to live bait yet. Pretty sure I don’t even own a spinner or lindy rig.

    We’ll be there…targeting smallies primarily on the W side, then driving to Vermilion from there for the rest of the weekend. Hope we catch something.

    I decided I’ll be fishing the west side Saturday. Not doing the midnight thing but I’ll be there about 4 am. Staying away from the north sand and closer to the shallow weeds. Should produce a good mix of smallies and walleyes. I’m more interested in smallies

    That sounds like a lot of fun. My boy would love that.

    Will be going out of our place on the SW corner, probably not going too far there while I test the recovery from my back injury. Most likely hit the lake at the crack of 9-10:00 am after cooking the kids a big breakfast. I expect the shallow bite to be pretty good this year.

    Launch fishing is a Blast! Still do a launch once or twice a year.

    Will be out at sun up and put in a good day! Have the whole week off for fishing. No need to get out at midnight for this guy. peace

    I also will sleep in. Walk out to the end of the dock, about 9:00 AM and then troll around Sunset Bay, Big Point, and Hunters. After filling the freezer with all those 29 -31″ that the natives didn’t get, will probably switch over to bass.

    Will be up in the north sand with the family. Like to try other spots but it’s a golf shot from the cabin and we tend to get lazy.

    I hope to get out to the flooded willows or maybe the flats now that the river is all mine!
