Last week I thought the crappies would be peaking this weekend and I was right. I took the owner of our company out along with Woodtic and we had a blast. Caught over 130 fish and put 21 in the livewell. Some of these were very nice. We fished the north end exclusively. Started around 11:30 am and fished 'til 7:00 pm... when we ran out of bait. I also caught a nice pike along with a few bucketmouths that looked to be around 3 lbs. Woodtic had an interesting bout when he caught a crappie and a muskie came up and tried to take it away from him... what a hoot! The crappies were very nice... biggest close to 12 inches.

It was nice getting the boat shook out for the opener. I am really looking forward to getting a long weekend in and some good fishing. I have a funny feeling about this year... and these feelings only come once in a while... I think it's going to be a banner year for some nice walleyes. Just a week away and I am already chompng at the bit...

BS usually is crap at night. I have tried for years and have yet to catch enything but a bullhead... but I will try it again this year. A full moon might help.

With the full moon, a possible cold front on the approach and the recent warm weather.. I think the fishing will be great. I'm trying to cram some info on how the eyes will react to all the various conditions. I'll be hitting Pokegama and I have chosen a few spots to start and have begun planning my methods of attack. I'm banking on the night bite being hot this year with the moon so I'll be out for the night into and through the next day. I'm tag teaming it with two boats so that we can search the lake more effectively and try to stay around the fish.

Sand Burr, If you see this post I wanted to ask you how much traffic Pokegama gets on opener?

Bald Eagle is like 5 minutes walking distance away from my house. The south end of the lake, that is. I wish I was able to get into some god spots right now from shore.

WebDude,Does BSL have stained water? I have been checking out BSL with my H20c and it looks like a good lake with the rivers and creeks running in and out of there.Do you know where Mescher road is? N.E side of the lake.

We are located on the south end in Webster Bay and yes, the water is stained. I think that is the reason why the night bite is so tough. I don't know where Mescher road is. Sounds like it might be up where the waterway starts up to Aitkin Lake.

About the night bite, again. I have to take back what I said earlier. About ten years ago the water was extremely high... you could fish of the deck of the cabin which is typically 50 feet from shore. On the opener that year, we were catching walleyes after midnight right off the deck where the beach usually was. It was the wierdest opener I have ever seen up there. The weather was beautiful and getting into the 80s during the days and lots of sunshine. We fished it in t-shirts. We also caught an unusual amont of walleyes that year. Some of the members here may have remembered it.
