Well I was out of town with the family for the opener so I wasn't able to get out till yesterday, but I sure made the most of it. On the water for about 6 untill 3 pm. Had a new rod/reel and lure combo I was itching to try. Rod was an 8' Wright and McGill, new Carbela's brand ( diawa) BC reel in 7.3 ratio and some perfect jig punch skirts were in order for the day.

First bass was just shy of 5 lbs and the second was the biggest if the day at 5.09. All in all I went 7 boated and 13 hooked. High loss ratio but it was my first time playing in the really thick weeds and throwing with no fear of snags. Bite was slow at times and the wind was a major player in the tactics but just so glad to be back out.
