The MN Fishing Opener was a success with strong numbers of walleyes and saugers caught. A jig and a frozen shiner was the ticket while anchored up. Lots of fish stacked in shallows. Lots of big girls mixed in with keeper walleyes and saugers. Anywhere from 10-20 feet holding fish. Water on the lake and river is about 2 feet low, pay attention if cruising shallows.
Up at the NW Angle… Much like the south shore, anglers using a jig and a minnow along shore lines were catching walleyes of all sizes. The angle area is ice free. Some boats have already navigated from the south shore to NW Angle.
