It was one of the most beautiful openers that we can remember. The weather was in the mid seventies and the winds were calm yet enough to create a mild chop. Our guests were enjoying fishing as well as camping, barbecuing and relaxing in the sun. Fishing reports were exceptional. Everyone of our guests were excited about the great bite and the most successful lined up along the first break directly out front of the resort. Fish of all sizes were caught from 8" all the way up to 30". A number of our park members pulled [...]
