The time is almost upon us! Just 6 weeks away! The opener on October 1 is usually busy on the lake, and the fishing is decent. The water temps are still warm but float tubers and boaters tend to do well. Bait balls can usually be seen at this time. We usually watch for the lake to turn over and the water temps to drop, which allows the shore fishing to get really good just after Thanksgiving. We have partnered with a couple of boat guides, and a float tube guide as well. So if you are going to be out for the opener and need a vessel with a guide let us know!
