This year the opener falls on a full moon.It's the first time I remember that happening in a long time.I fish walleyes ALOT at night and if you want to get yourself a wallhanger opening weekend will be prime time.I would look for the first dropoff from a large shallow bay.If you can find an inside turn on that dropoff much better.if you can find an inside turn with transitions in bottom content(rocks,sand,rubble,boulders Emerging green weeds specificly cabbage)you will have a real good shot at a big walleye.Don't be afraid to fish shallow.I have caught numerous big walleyes at night and almost all have been within a few days of a full moon provided its not full blown overcast.There are many lakes that turn pea green with algae but right now most lakes will have favourable water clarity for the quest.Good luck to all MFP's. wink smileyThere are so many variables to this post.I'm talking lakes probably from Brainerd south where walleyes have spawned and had a couple of weeks to recuperate.Oh and I almost forgot this lake should have a self sustaining walleye population,

good tips.. I've been going over many maps, notes and memories. Trying to figure this thing out. Where and what to do on opener?.. There is added pressure this year because I want to steal that MFP big walleye champion title... wink smiley

I have a learning curve for catching the eyes but I also don't have a wife, kids, or a home to take care of plus works slow and school is only part time for a couple more weeks. So I can get a lot more fishing done then some of you guys. smile smiley

Seriously though, times are tough.. I'm only working a few days a week so If anyone has work that needs to be done.. I can help!! I have to get these student loans paid for know what I mean?

I don't even fish for walleye, but have to say: I love seeing things like this posted up. Great tip!

Nice find on the moon thing, spotchecker. I usually check the solunar tables before a trip but have been so busy that it just slipped my mind. Going to be an interesting opener, eh?
