Should be next Saturday - always something to look forward too. We usually end up with a handful of decent lakers, maybe an over-sized specimen too. Might try a spot I haven't fished ina long time, the ledges off rt 70. You guys fish it?

The cliffs brings back good memories. Parking at the old cumbies and taking that walk all the way in. I use to come across groups of turkies, deer, something. The cliffs is where I got confidence in the red and white daredevil spoon.

I went last year and got one about 6 pounds. So far my biggest. They seldom get much bigger then stock trout there most of the time. Cull whatever you catch or through them in the woods for the raccoons. I guess it's been a little better since the smelt from Quabin have been swimming into wachusett through the aqueduct, but there are still to many small lakers.

I've never fished the res. There is so much open shoreline it doesn't seem like you could go wrong spending a whole day here . I want to get into some small mouth here this year.

Beat me to it. The ponds in my town about 15 miles E of the Chu didn't ice out until a day or two ago, so I'm not surprised the opening is delayed.

Well, looks like I won't be fishing opening day because I'll be pulling into Captiva, FL for a week on the 13th. I guess I'll have to settle for a shot at a tarpon, maybe some snook ;)
