Spring is my favorite time of year to fish hands down so I did a little swapping around at work and procured 8 straight off days. Needless to say that meant one thing and one thing only: time to hit the water! The water temps on my home lake are anywhere from 64-68 degrees and the fish are shallow but spread out. We keep getting a lot of rain and cold nights that have made the fishing a little inconsistent or made a lot of these fish suspend and simply follow the bait. The shad spawn is also kicking off in a lot of places in the lake so I've caught several fish on a spinnerbait. My quality fish have been caught on a black Spro popping frog thrown all day whether cloudy or bluebird skies; the big ones will eat it. Other than the frog I've been flipping a beaver or Z craw on a 3-4/0 flipping hook under a 1.5oz tungsten weight. I've been chasing largemouth so I can't speak to the spotted bass bite and likely won't until the largemouth bite slows down. About to work 4 straight days then off for 3 so I'll be back fishing as soon as I can. I hope things are hearing up for you all as well!
