It's truly not spring until westarm starts the count down to the season opener.

Must think positively. Must think positively.
I almost thought that last season as well. Was a slow developing spring on the lake. I could still see ice piled up on the eastern shore of the Manitou's just a few days prior to the opener last year. The LNSA never did get in a walleye egg collection at Wasi in 2018...slow thaw, low water levels as I recall. Walleye were still spawning under our dock the Friday night of the opener...surface water temps in our bay were still in the 6-7C range.
But it turned out good that opening weekend, at least in the South Bay Area.
Come on spring/summer weather pattern.

you guys are awesome! I am very much looking forward to getting the countdown started, the weather doesn't have me very amped up just yet.

much to look forward to this soft water season. I couldn't find the big gators on the opening last year, must rectify that this year. cant wait.

still 7 plus weeks until the May opener, & 14 day forecast isnt great.
i have heard from a friend there is still easily 2 feet of ice on lake still.

is it a real concern opener would be in jeopardy?
i know once ice gets broken up it goes fast, but 2 plus feet fast?
