Haha! Well for good reason. It often can be a sh-t show as there are so many people thinking they can just go pick some fish out of the lake and take them home for dinner. One thing that was really disappointing to see was a few Russian gentlemen who were at the lake last weekend as I was there with my buddy. They told us they planned to fish at night before the opener. I bet there are a good number of people who get away with that. Too bad we only have a couple Wardens in the county.
Back in 2015 I was fishing a dock and the owner came out to talk. He said that he'd watch people launch their boats at midnight and start fishing, which was legal by the way. He also said that lots of them had problems launching their boats, and he had a good show to watch. Same with Opening Day for Boating. Those who go boating/fishing one day a year.
Oh ya, while we were talking I caught 3 small Bass, 1 by his dock, 1 out in the open, and 1 close to the dock next to his while we were talking. Another spring day while we were talking I caught a 2 pounder by the bush hanging over the bulkhead by his dock, he thought that was neat.
