Fished the opener this year with great results. Fished the flats and any rocky structure in 4-7fow. We used grubs, tubes and jerkbaits but had minimal success. But they would pound a 3-4in red tail chubs drifted with a tinny splitshot. Best fish for the weekend was a 6lb 14oz. PIG that my buddy caught. But I only have my photos. I personaly caught a 5lber and a 5lb 4oz. Both fish were 20in. Small for the trip but never the less a giant in anyones book! Plus a bonus 29in Walleye trolling the shipping channel. Water temps were 52-56 in cloudy rainy, windy, sunny conditions. We saw it all that weekend!
