I figure we might as well have an outing together at Axehead for the opener. We could monopolize some real estate that way. sunrise i think should be around 7am when the gates are opened but i plan on being there around 5:30. anyway, i'll be there on the south end if anybody wants to join me.

See you there at 5:30 haha. What's your set up going to be? ultra light rod, 4lb line, berkley power bait and size 14-16 hooks? I couldn't find any 14-16 hooks at dicks by the glen last sat. You think 12 will do the job?

14-16?! :shock: that must be tiny! I didn't even know they made hooks that small. I just picked up some #8 I think Gamakatsu bait holder hooks for worm fishing for trout. I did fine with those last year.

just use the smallest hooks you can get your hands on. the hooks need to be basically small enough to allow the powerbait to float it. yeah, light rigs and 4 lb line.

who's bringing the dunkin donuts?

ahhh, that's the ultimate secret tony. keke

j/k. all colors work. it's the smell that gets them but i've always had luck with the rainbow. i've tried the glitter stuff last year and didn't produce as much as the original formulas. orange and green have produced as well.

I remember reading somewhere that the lake would open at 5 am. I'll see what my calendar looks like. It is probably going to be a zoo.

I can't wait to get out there. My fingers are crossed about CCFP not screwing up again. I'm seriously tempted to get over there and see if it's been stocked yet...you can usually see them jumping or along the shoreline. When they close it down is it only closed to fishing?
