Yes, it is the opener.
We have been waiting all winter long for this.
But, many of the kids have also.
So, find a bit of time and take the kids out fishing.
But hey, let's be smart about it...
Look for the pan fish.
Kids get bored really fast and trolling for large fish will turn them off FAST!
Be a good person and let the kids have an hour going at the panfish, and then watch the smiles...
Sometimes the kids are on the older side.
