Brad Laabs: Weather, wind, lake ice made for a down opener
The opener was slow for most anglers. Most lakes barely made themselves available, and for the lakes that did get opened up, the wind and weather made sure we all remembered it was opening weekend. Saturday and Tuesday’s 25-40 mph winds sandwiched the overnight low of 24 degrees Sunday night and the high of 89 on Monday — weird, weird, weird! It sure makes for an all-around eventful start to the open water season.
