    Spoiled indeed!! Ive been going to the opening for about 16 years now ( I've been fishing there since 1984 when I was 11). The first 5-6 years we just trolled and did well. But once we started jigging we got 200 fish a day to the boat. Some years were less and some more. We started to get really big fish consistently 7 years ago. The average waights of the fish have been going up until a few years ago and has plateaued for us as well.

    I forgot my phone at home with a few other things. I must have been a little excited and in a hurry. But my dad took a few of the 2 fish we kept do to swallowing the jigs whole and coming to the boat bleeding like a stuck pig.
    Me with my 14 pounder and my dad with a 10 pounder.
    You know if I had my phone there would have been a lot of photos. I have a lot of friends that love fish porn!!

    I think they want it that way. Easier to maintain and patrol one ramp than two or three. Nice parking and camping at Pelican though.

    Today we went out until noon and got 30 fish up to 9 pounds. All and all it was fun but not to par for the opener at Pyramid standards.
