Chris Zilinski at Lake of the Woods Sports Headquarters can't wait to get out in the boat.
He says muskie season opens this weekend, and the fishing's been good.
"It's been a fantastic season so far," he added, noting he's been having success, regardless of the species.
"Tips on fishing after a thunder storm? Always the walleye bite's going to be really hot. Fish get really active after a storm. They generally move up into the shallows a little bit in 12 to 18 feet of water. Usually just a jig and a minnow or a jig and a worm. Always hammer 'em after a thunderstorm," he said.
