Looking at past water temps I have us figured at about a month behind the past few years. The full moon that past a week ago or so brought a few fish up shallow to spawn the last couple of years. Not this one! With temps just getting into the low 50's this week the next one will bring some of the biggest fish in to see if the conditions are right and we should start to see waves of fish move shallow in preparation for the spawn. They are beginning to stage on secondary points and move that direction so get prepared as the best fishing of the year is about to start. I am just happy to see the start of spring and I know it is here because my allergies tell me so. The daffodils are finally blooming and water temps have finally hit 50. Spring is here get out and take advantage of it! I am headed to Lake Fork next week and looking forward to a great trip and to tell you all about it.
I keep telling myself spring is coming. I fished Quachita in February with good results and weather yet ever since it has been cold and ice and bad weather. Tournaments are still mostly being won with A-rigs and Jigs on specific winter haunts for the bass and if you find them and grind it out can catch a good stringer but it is slow and work.
I am not a pro fisherman just Joe Average out here trying to enjoy the outdoors. I love to bass fish and love the competition of tournament fishing as well. Hope you find something within my sight that is entertaining or informative..
