The opener was a zoo as usual. There is 15" of ice in some spots, less as you get closer to the center. It looked like there was quite a few folks out over the weekend when I drove past the south end.
I fished mid afternoon on the opener and had one miss in 5-8' of water. I had planned to go out last weekend as well but went west to fish with my son in law over by Melrose. The reports I heard about opener was that it was slow all around but some fish were caught.
Was up on Big Bow last week. Pulled three trucks out that were stuck. Not easy getting around off the roads. We went out of Geigers and he has a nice road where you can get off and fish. Fishing was not good though we didn't try going cross country to our normal spots. Good luck!!
OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?
