Yes, the opener for game fish is this Saturday.
There have been many blogs on fishing and being ready.
But this one is for safety.
If you are fishing from a boat...WEAR THAT LIFE JACKET!!!
I have a friend a few years ago almost died when he fell overboard.
He was an excellent swimmer but he was floundering because of the clothing he had on.
He is lucky he was not alone and his partner through a life pillow to him and that gave the partner time to get to him.
Do your family a favor...WEAR THE LIFE JACKET!!!!!!
