Anglers from all over the state went to their favorite childhood fishing holes, local hot spots and to the one lake where the big one always gets away!

Brad “Red” Wachtler is the owner/operator of Red’s Bait Shop in Rock Creek, He says that although the weather played a role in the fish biting, it was still a good opener.
