Default Delavan Opener

Got out for the Wisconsin Opener and fished Saturday and Sunday. Main lake temps in the upper 40's and protected areas in the 50's. Lots of nice females prespawn with the colder water this year. Fished mainly chatterbaits, rattle baits, plastics, and jerkbaits. No fish on beds yet and water clarity was poor in most areas we checked. Best bites were early and late, with time in-between spent in the Lake Lawn hot tub or napping

Now that's what is known as a freakin' beat down on those green fish. Saw your other post as well which was nothing short of amazing!
