Walleye Opener - May 5 -6 Report

Recommended Posts

The Opening weekend team changed this year as my son couldn't make it down, so his Mother stepped in and joined my Dad and myself for the opener. Hit the water at 0800 and headed for Adolphus Reach, the NE winds buffeted the boat around, so we stayed on the north side looking for the lee near Lyons Is.

Trolled up and down in varying depths, 18 - 45' marking lots of fish and many active ones feeding. They weren't interested in our offerings. Decided to head for the south side over by Keith Shoal as most of theboats had left. We trolled along the shore and out by the green marker, the flat line with the Tal Dancer went off and Pat was fast into a fish. The swirling winds made the landing of the fish a three ring circus as we had lines and boards all over the place. Not with standing the net was slipped under the fish and we weren't skunked.

We had a fish for the hidden weight category. Spent some time re-rigging the rods and having lunch while drifting around. We trolled til 1500 and headed for Perfect Vue to weigh the fish. She was officallly entered and we talked to Board members who had fished all night.

Back to the dock at 1615 and glad to have solid ground under our feet rather than the rocking and rolling of the boat and the waves.

Watched the Kentucky Derby and spent theevening talking about the day and what to do on Sunday.

Sunday, we hit the water and waved to FatMan and stopped to talk with Dan Elliot about their Saturday luck and lack of it on Sunday.

We got thru the squadron of boats at Shermans and headed north, started trolling almost opposite the lighthouse and went to Hickory Lane, made four passed with lure changes each time and couldn't induce a strike, marking a lot of fish in that area.

Switched to Uzick Spinners and worms and made several circles around Shermans as everyone left around 1200, only got one small perch.... Decided to try the shoals in front of Bayview Resort and after 20 minutes, Pat was into a fish. Just the size for the table, a nice clean 16 incher. Back to shore at 1400 and called it a weekend. Cleaned up and headed back to Kingston.

We'll get em next year.................................

From the reports it appeared as though the fish werestill moving around, some good catches in the flats and west of Ram IS.

Stay Tuned
