This is very late for a post like this, but I hope a few will benefit from it. Obviously, this year is very different from normal years. We had a very early ice out, and have had abnormal warm temps. this spring. This all adds up to water temps. that are way above average for Minnesota opener weekend. The Walleye have spawned a while ago, about a month, and while we usually catch the smaller males during opener, we will now be targeting the post-spawn females. This means BIG fish! Water temps. are perfect for those hungry females that just spent a long time spawning. They are hungry and willing to eat a lot! The areas to fish this weekend will vary a lot from normal years. Last year, to eventually produce fish, we were directly in the wind and waves casting into 1-2 feet of rocks. It was hard fishing, very hard. This year is very different. Fish as you would in early June this opener. Nice, easy, good 'ol Walleye fishing. Slow pulling a spinning rig along a sand bottom, floating a fathead(or even a leech this year) on top of that 20-25 foot rock pile, or trolling your choice of lure along the weedlines, should produce some nice hungry Walleye. And with the beautiful weather forecast...this may be one Walleye opener where many people are making memories. Best of luck to all.

Catch'em Fast!

Great advice! That is exactly what I plan on doing. I will have a couple youngsters with me that might even enjoy this year.
