Opening Fishing – 2016

May 28, 2016

Opening fishing, plus a few warm-ups.

May 1, 2016 – Took my son to Lake Minnewashta to fish for crappies and to give the boat a test run.  Strong north wind but the crappies cooperated.  The boat?  Not so much. Had a tough time getting it to start.

May 7, 2016 – Brought my wife to Lake Minnewashta and this time the motor started. Yahoo! Beautiful and calm evening. Pretty sunset.  Lots of small crappies and sunfish.  Caught several crappies on my fly rod casting a Warden’s Worry.  Tremendous bug hatch at the end of the evening.  You could hear the sunnies slashing away at the emerging bugs.

May 14, 2016 – Opening Fishing – for walleyes and pike.  Windy.  Really windy and clear.  Cold too.  The action on Lake Minnetonka was pretty quite.  Trolled the shallows in the dark with Rapala minnows and had no action.  All my action came on jigs tipped with shiners or fatheads – just pike though. No walleyes.

May 15, 2016 – Snuck in a trip Sunday morning to Lake Nokomis to try for walleyes.  Donned the waders.  34 degrees.  Pretty chilly.  Caught one bass and a perch on a jig and shiner.  Had to stop at Mel-O Glaze Bakery for breakfast.
