Red Door Resort Harbor on Mille Lacs Lake

Mille Lacs Lake Pre-MN Fishing Opener Report 5/8/2024

Looking Forward to the 2024 Minnesota Fishing Opener Weekend

Good morning everyone, John here with The Red Door Resort on the beautiful north shore of Mille Lacs Lake.  It is Wednesday, May 8th 2024. and we are getting ready for the big Minnesota walleye opener this weekend.  Also, happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there on Sunday.  We hope you have a fabulous weekend as well.  Quick report for late conditions, we have water temps about 52 to 54 degrees and the amount of fish I’m seeing in my electronics is just incredible, from about 6 to 13 feet of water.  I’m on the north end here out in front of the resort and the fish are absolutely loaded.  So it should be a fabulous bite this weekend.  I would concentrate your efforts on a jig and a shiner, jig and plastic, even slip bobber and leech.  All should work well.  It looks like we’re going to have beautiful weather this weekend so we’d love to see you all this weekend.

Give us a call at the resort 218-678-3686 and book your guide trips, your cabins, your motels.  I’ll be guiding out here full time this summer. So give me a call to book your trip. And we hope to see you all soon. Good luck to everyone in the water this weekend and be safe. See you soon.
