What's your plan for opener?
« on: April 16, 2015, 11:56:19 AM »

With the opener pushed forward 2 weeks what's your thoughts on where the bass with be?  What will you tie on first??  I picked up some NuTech jigs this spring but not sure if that's the best option.

Jigs are ALWAYS a good option. I'll most likely be scouting some water on the river in Wabasha that weekend, and I'll probably be throwing a spinnerbait quite a bit  ~shhh

I will be pitching a 1/2oz jig with a RI smallie beaver tight to the bank, and yes, I will be at the Swamp! It is my destiny to catch a 7lb+ here, just a matter of time.

anyone know water temps in the metro? Will they be sneaking up into the shallows yet or will they still be out a bit?   I'm new to this actually trying to figure out where they are and not just chuckin' bait!  I don't know how you guys that have been fishing for years can handle the "wait" every year!!!  :surrender:

Will they be shallow or out a bit, not sure, it will be the first day, and that can change from lake to lake. I can say this, I plan on being so shallow my jig will hit dirt before it hits water, lol,. Gl

How did everyone do. Saturday looked amazing weatherwise. I spent it building a fence all day.  :'(



Last I heard water temps were in the 60s and fish were definitely shallow, that is where I would have started

Started fishing at swamp around 5:45am, water temp was 60-63 when left at 2:00. Water was around 2' low, and it was crowded, never seen so many boats out there.  It was a grind, most people I ran into were nowhere near a limit and fishing shallow. I caught 7 keepers shallow, but I caught my bigger fish deep, 8-10', with a tube, including my biggest of the day, 4lb 10ozer. Didn't exactly load the boat with giants, but had a good day.

Spent the day on Mille Lacs.
Best 5 Smallmouth went 24lbs 5ozs.
Biggest 3 were 5lb 13oz, 5lb 8oz and a 5lb 2oz.

Lost a giant that ate a Gancraft Jointed Claw 178, a 7inch hard body swimbait.

Had a upper 40s maybe low 50s inch musky follow another swimbait.

Smallmouth were gorging on crawdads, almost every fish spit them up at the boat.

Awesome, that lake has turned into a giant smallie factory, my buddy was up there for opener also and said he saw 100 smallie's between 4-6lbs. I got to get up there this year.
