Area 11 March Opener
« on: February 25, 2024, 11:47:50 AM »
Anyone fishing the early opener?  Going to head out next weekend to run the boat at a minimum and shake the rust off.  Anyone fish it this early before?

Early? This is late, it’s a winter blackmouth fishery.

I've never fished it this time of year so I called it early opener..  LOL.  Either way hoping to get out if weather at least cooperates a little

wasn't going to pull my rig out of storage for the more than likely 3 or 4 days of this "season" with touch limits...

I miss the Feb opener's.
I won't be out, waiting for 5 to open
Good luck out there. Plenty of blackmouth to be had.

Waiting to see what the weather looks like since I have a small open boat. So far it’s not looking that good but keeping my fingers crossed.

Match the hatch and drag bottom
Lots of hungry fish this time of year.

I want to get out but the forecast looks like shizz.  Wind from the south at 10kts with gusts to 20kts usually isnt a fun day, lol.
