      Mn Fishing Opener

      Heading to blue plate country later today to partake in the fishing opener(walleye). Bemidji area lakes. Grew up there and pretty much fished Bemidji area and Leech Lake, Red Lake, often. Opener is pretty much a big deal as much as deer opener here..and there. Anyone else taking in the MN opener? I am sure I will hear the blue plater put down from some on here. To each their own.

      I've crossed off that bumper-boat shit show years ago. Used to do it annually, but just kind of lost its luster. I like to wait a couple weeks until the shiners run and the boat parade dwindles. Usually a lot better weather and more consistent fishing.

      Probably not.

      Got tired of cabin owners spotting me fishing two lines and yelling/bitching from shore about flat-heads overfishing their lake.



      True story more than once - tee hee.

      I'm a bad bad man.

      3Roosters as an X Blue Plater I totally get it. As a kid I remember Dad taking me up to the old Red Lantern Resort on Otter Tail. Sometimes as a group with others. Not sure if its still their but what fantastic memories. Especially the night before. Camp Fire, tons of food & treats, and of course the fish stories that would get us worked up in anticipation of that early morning bite!

      No offense to Minnesota, well maybe a little, but fuck your DNR...

      Fishing opener? how nice of them to allow their citizens the right to fish...

      Every time I hear this MN fishing opener I am reminded of my "buddy" big red Eddie Schultz, and how that arrogant SOB would get all jacked up trying to sell his big eddy spinners... Not to speak poorly of the dead, so forgive me for doing so.

      Cousins had an old converted barn / cabin on little round just west of ottertail. Was always a blast to stay there. Between the extra tents and station wagons we could sleep 30 easy. It was only a couple hundred yards to the swimming beach on Ottertail. Used to do a lot of night fishing for walleys on Ottertail. LB

      Can't wait! My uncle seined about 80 dozen shiners from our lake. Big bastards and native to the lake...can't get any better than that! And free to boot, no paying by the dozen for me.

      Our cabin is on a little lake known more for blue gills and crappie and which I target most of the time so will be redoing my set ups for walleye tonight for opening morning. When i was a young lad, my parents would always take my brothers and me to Upper Red Lake and camp at ..i think it was Roger's resort. Bunch of ppl from Bemidji would camp there for opening weekend. Walleyes were mostly in that 13-16inch range but was fun. Then in my teen years the folks bought a cabin near Stony Point on Leech Lake. We caught many 'eyes over the years at that cabin! Good memories for sure!

      Definitely going to do some crappie fishing too. Lida has an 11 inch minimum to keep crappie, so you can catch some really nice ones. Only problem is they come from a bay which is 9 feet deep at most, and they taste like mud.

      They taste like mud because that bay is nothing but mud.

      Exactly. It's even called mud lake.

      I haven't even looked at my boat since Sept. Maybe next weekend I'll nab it from storage, get the fluids changed, charge the batteries, and make sure it'll start.

      This has been like listening to Nancy Pelosi argue with Ozzy Osborne.

      I am SO SO SO SO glad that we (here in ND) no longer have a season on the MO. I recall when we did, but now it would suck.

      I'm just about to 80 fish this spring already, from shore, and I'd have missed them all if I hadn't been able to fish these past two months. There's been a few bigs too.

      I live in Fargo. I have not fished yet this spring. Fargo makes me sad.

      There were some nice walleye's pulled in this spring at the north dam. You had to cast about 400 times before you get a bite, but they're in there LOL

      plus Fargo has the dreaded smell of the 45th street land fill. I don’t miss the putrid smell of garbage in the morning. Those seagulls of the 45 th street dump do however make for an interesting dish at the China king buffet downtown.
