That wonderful time is here. The time when we anglers don our hats and sunglasses, stockpile bait and fishing tackle, break out the rods and reels, and get the boat all ready fishing?


Wait. Did I miss something here?

I have fished on opener with my dad and grandpa for as long as I can remember, and ice has never been a problem. Well, OK, it did snow quite heavily a couple years ago, but at least we were able to use the boat.
