Once the boats blasted off, they scattered across Grand Lake. Some stayed close to begin with while others raced to areas in hopes of not having to fish behind someone else – many anglers talked about getting into a good rotation after practice.
The action was a little slower than expected, but the water was warmer than it had been in practice and it had cleared up slightly in some areas. Most of the anglers we observed were content with casting parallel or tight to shore or near docks with moving baits and some mixed in slower presentations like a jig.
