For quite a number of years now (10-15), i've been chasing Lake trout or Brook trout on opener and leaving Walleye until early June.

For those that target walleye on opener. Would you choose a lake or a river and why? Also, this would be up by Ely, so Ice likely just came off.

I'd look for current coming into a lake. Target below a falls and focus on walleyes looking to spawn around opener (Mid-May). Spawned walleyes can still be around spawning areas... look for nearby mud flats with little, if any, current and warming water.
