Default Delavan Opener with pics

It was my first opening day adventure up there and I can gladly say it will not be my last !!

My partner and I arrived friday afternoon to 20+ winds, so we decided to try for crappies. As soon as we arrived at our first spot, we got greeted with a hefty thunderstorm and decided to search for the best water temps, 48 in the middle of the lake and 55-57 on the north shores. We started Saturday morning at our warmest water of 57 degrees and found the fish very active immediately. And it wasn't just us, every single boat around us was catching fish. We had steady rain and wind all day long and I think it kept the feed bag on all day long. I'm going to post a bunch of pics in no particular order(I don't know how to do the spaces and such). I see it as only getting better for two weeks because all the females were pre-spawn and still very firm. I'm going again next weekend and I'm interested to see the spawing progression and how the bite changes.

It was a blast to also fish with some fellow CLF'ers!! Fishinmatt, Yami master, and Walleye_71 it was great to tip afew with you guys and kick some bass!!! I hope you guys had a good sunday evening !!!


Here's a few of the better ones:

Nice fish guys.
Looking forward to getting out there next week when the water warms up again.
I tried to post my pics from Sunday, but the camera is finished.
My buddy has some pics on his cell phone, so I'll see if he can get them posted.
