The report for Decoyer and Field Hunter is that we only got 2 small walleyes and more northerns than we knew what to do with. Both walleyes came on Saturday morning, of course I wasn't down at the cabin yet, oh well. Water temps are still in the 40s. I would guess it will be a couple weeks before the walleyes really get going in MN, but by that time of year it is time to bass fish.
Wow am I sunburned. Chris and I managed to scratch a nice eye on Sat. night but that was about it for opening day. Sunday afternoon we really got into em and pulled out 7, but it should have been a lot more because we had a a lot of strikes. All 7 were pretty good walleyes. It only took about 14 hours of fishing to finally pin'em down. Chris had a tough weekend and I'm hoping he will tell the tale on here otherwise i might have to.
Eric really wanted to rub this one in. I got skunked. Ya I got some small pike, but not one walleye. I was using the same tackle, same bait, but just no action. I gave my girlfriend my rod for a second while I rebaited hers and BOOM, an 18" walleye on my rod. Oh well, my girlfriend got a 17" and an 18" and she was very excited so that was better than anything I would've caught.
I'm sunburnt as well. It sure took a long time this spring to feel this way.
