Opening day, finally.  I headed out this morning and the weather was kind of crappy, but not to bad.

It wasn't to windy to start.

Before I headed out in the boat I wanted to give a few casts with the new Berkley Havoc Craw Fatty.

Split shot rig.

My first cast landed me a pretty good Bass.

A good way to start the day.

Once out on the water I switched over to a Bleeding Buzz Bait.

A pike nailed my brand new Bleeding Buzz and of course bent out of shape.

A small Bass on the Scum Frog.

I was rolling a Bleeding Buzz, Scum Frog, and the Berkley Havoc Craw Fatty.

A better Scum Frog Bass

Then back to the Buzz

That Bass pulled the skirt down on my Buzz.

Beaver Hut. Perfect for the Craw Fatty.

I managed to pull a few Bass out of the Beaver Hut.

Those few Bass came out of the Beaver Hut, that's why I like Beavers. I was pretty impressed with the Craw Fatty. I will be writing a product review on that bait with in the next couple days. I had a lot of camera issues with video taping today. 

To finish up the day I went with the Buzz Bait.

I  love those Buzz Baits.

One of my best fish came at 12:45 pm. I was getting ready to leave and managed to hammer a good Bass on the Buzz.

Gotta love the early afternoon top water bite. A lot of people give up on top water in the late morning. I like to use it all day.

So for opening day things went pretty good.  I wish my cameras would have co-operated better for videoing. I would set the camera up and by accident I was shutting it off, so I didn't get much for videos.
