Apparently, it was too cold to go out.  Or the fisherman are being tight lipped just like the walleye!

Pretty much the worst conditions you could ask for, for an opener. We hardly saw anyone Sunday, that could give us a report. That tells me that guys weren't burning up too much bait, and didn't need to come get more.

The few reports we did get were from the north end of the bay. One guy said they were drifting floating jigs with half a crawler in less than 20FOW, and caught a few keepers.

It was an absolute horrible bite. We ran all over, threw everything at them, and pretty much struck out. We found some good numbers of fish but they didn't want to dance. Water temps ranged from 50.5 in the head of the bay to 43 south of Ford River. We got checked by the DNR around 9:30 a.m. who had not checked a boat with a fish in it. Heard a few guys catching one or two but 90% of the guys we talked to were skunked.

Fished from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm, never came off the water. Strong east wind in the morning. Drifted for the first half o the day and caught two.  Saw one other  fish netted. Trolled for the last half of the day and picked up two more.  Plus a bonus net that we snagged in 50 feet of water with a deep diving crankbait. How nice to see that...
 Marked fish but not a ton of em.   Talked to a few other boats, one boat had one 18 incher and the others had caught nothing. Yikes

As in a gill net?  Was it marked? curious as to where about?  If it wasn't marked maybe contact the DNR and see what they will do about it?????

Yup....it was a gill net.  About a 1/4 Mile North from Hunters Point in 50 feet of water.  Just caught it with our outside board.  Bait was running 15-20 feet down. Drag starts clicking at that depth and of course you think it's a fish and not a snag. Turned around and went over top of it and saw it on the graph.  Had to break off as it wasn't budging. We should have marked the coordinates and called it in but I have done that in the past around the Mqt harbor and nothing was ever done. Unreal ....
