Preparation is the Key to Success!
It’s hard to believe that a few weeks ago there was around 18” of ice hanging around and now the lakes in the Northwoods are open. As far as the fishing goes, I haven’t been out since the ice was good and safe. However I did catch a pike off shore the other day while testing equipment for the new open water fishing season which begins May 6th.
This is a good time of the year to go through a checklist of maintenance items such as:
•Putting new line on reels especially mono set-ups,
•Making sure that your reels are in good working order,
•Check your tackle supply
Verify that your boat , motor, and trailer are in good working order, including:
•fresh fuel and oil,
•trailer lights that work,
•plenty of PFD’s,
•new boat registration sticker,
•new fishing license.
These are a few reminders to do before the opener. For those who have the fishing itch already, there is good fishing at the local dams. I have heard people are catching walleye and panfish. The bite has been pretty good when the weather warms up and is more stable. Warm air means warmer water and that’s good for spring fishing.
If you are going fishing at a local dam, make sure you know the rules for the specie you are trying to catch! For example, at some dams, you can keep walleye like on some local river systems, but most dams up here, there is no harvest until the opener in May.
I am excited to report that I purchased a new boat this spring I am in the process of getting it ready for the fishing opener and I’m looking forward to taking clients fishing soon! We will also have fishing reports weekly during the new season so stay tuned. Good luck fisherman!
