we put in at the jug tonight and went down a ways to a hole we know. i caught a blue a shade over 15lbs right off the bat. about 45 minutes later i caught another just over 20lbs. pretty good for my opener as far as rod and reel fishing this year. we were only there about 2.5 hours. we are going again sat night, i think with the warm weather coming in it will be perfect.
