Open water is finally here! Catch more fish this spring by using the right size bait – fishing.

Open water spring fishing is finally here! Catch more fish this spring by choosing the right size baits:  https://bit.ly/2wusmMm

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!

This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – where to find fish on really hot days – fishing.

Hi fellows AMFisHers!   This weeks AMFisH(LEARN more here: www.amfish.ca) fishing vlog is about how to locate and find more fish on really hot days:

Keeping an eye out for groups of birds or prey is one quick way to locate where baitfish are and where the bait are the fish will not be too far off!   On these really hot days we need to take water temperature into high consideration, WHY well if you have ever put your hands in a lake or went swimming in a lake you will know about that cold pocket you usually feel with your toes while treading water.

When the days are hot with that beaming sun you need to understand that fish will not always be out sunning themselves in that very warm water, which is typically the first 2 to 3ft of the water column closest to the surface.  WHY, well it’s simple the water is far too hot for the fish to be hanging around in, they will move towards the cooler water column located below, out of the direct sunlight where they can be sitting at a much more comfortable temperature.

You may find some fish cruising the shallows for some sun but they will not be there for long periods of time, so casting the shoreline is still a good option BUT the key is to keep an eye out for activity taking place.  If you do not see fish, baitfish and other bait in the shallows and the water is very still with a calmness about it, the best thing to do is to immediately try deeper water. Back out to double the depth you were just fishing in, example if you were casting into 3ft of water head for 6ft deep water and try fishing that area, then double that depth a second time until you start getting some bites.

Trying areas filled with shade is also a great way to find some fish, thick tall reed filled areas with shade pockets, boat houses, docks, a every shade filled bay, all these spots are good as fish will hold in shade filled areas as well, because that water there will also be much cooler than the sunny spots.

Just like we would be uncomfortable in very warm water for too long of a time, fish are actually that much more uncomfortable in the warm water, so they do move in many cases right away from it into the cooler stuff.

Hope you found this vlog helpful!
