Fishing opener was very challenging

By Bill Bartusek

After the bad weather on opening weekend, anglers expected better for this last weekend. It was a bit warmer and somewhat drier. We even saw more boats out and about, especially on Lake Mille Lacs.

The opener had been pretty good as far as the fishing was concerned. Anglers that decided to fish despite the weather found success. The area walleye's were on a bite and if you found them, they were catchable. Lakes like Prior, Spring, Cardova and French provided decent walleye action. The second weekend was about the same. The only problem was the wind.
