Looking forward to the fishing opener tomorrow.
Most anglers will be chasing the elusive
walleye, but a great back up plan is the great
crappie fishing that is happening right now.
Crappies are setting up in their spawning areas.
Look for pencil reeds or bedding areas close to
shore. Grab a small bobber, jigs, and
minnows and you are set. Sunfish have been
very active too! For walleyes it could be
a good opener considering the early ice out and
warmer water temps. Start out fishing the
windswept shorelines in 10-12 feet of water.
Early in the season it is tough to beat a
fireball jig and a spot-tail shiner. This
year the state has opened up an early catch and
release season for bass. That'll be
another fun option. Look for bass in the
shallow bays. Small spinnerbaits, chatter
baits, or live bait like minnows or leeches will
catch a lot of bass.Should be a fun weekend.
