Pelican Rapids, MN (WDAY TV) -- With the Minnesota Walleye Fishing Opener just 4 days, we took to the road and talked to some area bait shops.

Our first stop was at Park Region Co-op in Pelican Rapids, which will be a busy place the next few days.

Fishing experts tell us that Lake Lida, Crystal Lake, and Sand Lake will likely be the hot spots this weekend.

Tate Nelson with the Park Region Bait & Tackle Shop says, "Now with this early ice off and early snow melt. It's been helping the fish get going a little earlier. For the fishermen it's kind of given them the itch to get out and go fishing."

Right now we have crappies and fatheads as are main minnow right now. This Wednesday or Thursday we'll get our shiners or suckers and more of the game fish minnows in.
