We didn't hit it on the 1st, and the rumor was that it was a zoo. We went the next 2 days and there were no crowds. We fished the morning and evenings because the daytime was too hot. When the sludge cleared it was awesome.
Well done. Looked like you had calm winds which is always nice. Damn opener is always a zoo. I hit it for 5 years straight but I have held off the past 2 years. Did you pick up any serious toads? Was the overall fishing good? When the sludge blooms.. man it blooms
