    Everything went really smooth, we started lining boats up top in the staging line a little after 5:00 am; then right about when we almost ran out of room we started launching, about 6:00 am. By 7:00 am the launch line up top was pretty much gone; when I went down and got my car there was still a line down below and still boats and cars slowly tricking in.

    5:00 am? I'm guessing....45-60 mins? It's hard to guess because some of the timeframe depends on how organized everyone is, how many are launching solo, etc.

    OK the line to get in is gone, all staged boats are on the lake now, clear entry and lots of rental boats available.

    Launching was very easy and smooth. We were around boat 80 and it was painless.

    Fishing is good. Already have a handful over 5 and one good one.

    He says from Float Tubes, Yaks and Boats. So they are fishing around the docks from the water. There is no fishing from the docks.

    Fish seem to be deep now. The lake is definitely crowded. Hardest task is finding open shoreline that's not been fished just prior.

    Fish are probably in shock from all the boats and fishing pressure. After 8 years without it.... I am sure they are all sorts of confused right now and nervous.

    Yes you just have to tell them at the gate you are renting a boat but that's only for people renting boats.
