Well with all things considered an early ice out has given us a jump on this years season. The ice has left early under some early warming which changed to cool. None the less open water is what we have had for the last two weeks and the walleyes are spawning. This should put us primarily in a pre-spawn setting when the opener arrives MAY 7th. I am expecting good fishing this year and I am starting my scouting now to be ready. Taking booking dates now as I know it will be busy.
