We are starting to see more signs of spring and more warm weather in the forecast, finally!

Young’s Bay has opened up; there is open water in the channels amongst the islands, and quite a bit of open water on the north side of the island. Between the temps and the wind we expect see quite a few more areas opening up this week in time for opener.  The shallow bite should be hot!
