Open water spring fishing is finally here! Catch more fish this spring by choosing the right size baits:

Thought I would post this past spring fishing video, as it is a great overview I had done of choosing the right size baits for early season that will lead you to catching during the cool spring months.

Understanding that most of the lakes we fish are still pretty cool temperature wise, ranging from 45 to 54 degrees at most due to a late ice out and very few really hot consecutive days to warm things up, we as anglers need to treat these early spring months similar to the mid to late fall months in order to enjoy successful days.

Key areas to focus on are using bite size baits in the 3 to 3.5 inch range, with leaner style bodies that are retrieved quite slowly. Due to the cool water a fast moving bait at this time of year will not blend in well with natural forage, so adding several pauses on retrieves and letting the bait rest for up to 10 seconds sometimes before you start retrieving it again is very important.

If you have any questions on how to capitalize on spring fishing success, feel free to ask in the comments…tight lines everyone!
