    You might consider that a full moon is this Thursday. It surely will make it tougher for you.

    Yeah, that is what I was thinking last night when hanging in the backyard. My wife wasn't sure why I was getting upset, then I mentioned the moon and she understood.

    I did well last year on opening day. I think I remember getting into double digits. I expect that it will be a zoo this year with it being on Friday of Labor Day weekend. If you go, get there early to find parking. I remember parking running out early last year on the opener. I'm going to skip it this year. I also fished day 2 last year and it was considerably slower, I think I got 3.

    I usually get there before 7. But looks like the winds will be howling, that plus a full moon. Guess I will wait til next week. I am retiring today so I can fish any time from now on!!

    Retirement? Interesting. When I retired I pretty much stopped fishing weekends. Lay low on the weekend and get back out there Tuesday after the fish have recovered from the weekend. Maybe they will add some weekdays to the Heenan schedule.

    Congratulations.

    Any big goals for retirement?

    Having a really hard time finding regs for the lake? Obviously no gas motors.

    Can you use a trolling motor, if not what about oars? I have a 10 ft inflatable dinghy with rowing frame and troll motor I would like to take.

    Thank you

    Isn't Heenan open every day during the open season?

    It used to be open Wed, Sat, Sun.

    I think it is open Sept/Oct.

    October was usually better time.
