MN Fishing Report 5-8-14

Hello from the epicenter of fresh water fishing!! The excitement is starting to rise to the surface as we get closer to the 2014 Minnesota Fishing Opener. Those toothy critters (walleyes and northerns) are going to be fair game once again starting at midnight on the 10th of May (Saturday). Our guides are in semi-scramble mode as we all are either getting ready to or are currently loading up the boats with rods, reels, tackle boxes, tools, lifejackets and all the other goodies that we bring with us on the water. We all have brand spanking new Larson FX fishing boats this spring and they are very sharp! As for the fishing, I think it’s going to be good.

The Minnesota Governors Opener is on Gull Lake this year and that is where I will be along with 100 plus other anglers on opening day. The walleye population is good and I know for a fact that the crappies are biting too. My dad has been catching them from shore. The walleyes are going to be pretty darn shallow and the top presentations will be jigs and minnows, live bait rigs and minnows, crank baits such as the Salmo Hornet and jigs and Gulp Alive!

Our guide service has a pretty cool contest going on form opener to close (of the walleye season). It’s the Walleye Lotto and we will have more info on the website very soon. It’s going to be an exciting year and it’s shaping up to be a pretty darn busy one too. “Jingles the Fish” is who you want to catch, but she’s not an easy catch! Have a great day and don’t catch them all,
