It looks like a typical walleye opener in Minnesota; not very nice weather. The picture doesn’t show it very well, but it is snowing lightly and has been most of the morning. A few hardy souls are giving the river a try, but you can bet that it’s chilly and damp. Lake of the Woods is mostly covered with ice which leaves Four Mile Bay and the river as the likely places to fish; maybe the Gap if the north wind doesn’t push in to much ice. The river has quite a bit of water inflow and is dirty from runoff which may slow up the bite. A sure gauge as to how the bite was on Saturday is to see how many rigs are at the landing on Sunday morning. One or none probably means the bite wasn’t very good. The nice thing about living up here is that we don’t have to go fishing today.
