|Opener company, bite as good as it gets|

IT STARTED with a simple cast, the 2012 open water fishing season, as daughter Melissa sent a jig and minnow toward the shoreline in hopes there might be some old or new cabbage weeds holding walleyes.
Our sharing boat space for a weekend had been on the calendar for a couple of months, something we hadn’t done since last June around Father’s Day. There’s no ruining a weekend like that, fish or no fish, yet we were hoping that overcast conditions would be right for the walleyes.
Our plan was to find the thickest, nastiest old cabbage weeds from last year, which normally are the first areas to harbor the newest weed growth of the season. And it’s those new weeds, the really green, tough plants, that hold the walleyes.
