The opener was one of the best on record. The water record was broken and plenty of fish have been caught. Catch rates are about 1 fish per hour with some fish being caught up to 24” from shore and boats. Shore fisherman are using large spoons, diving plugs. and crawlers deep off the bottom. Look for fishing to just keep getting better as spring creeps in.
