When the ice first goes away I always hit shallow ponds. What is your best idea to get the fish to bite ? Im a die hard largemouth fishermen if you have any great ideas speak up.

Outdoorsman,after the first two days of warming the big fish are putting on the feed bag.I like to fish with husky jerks,rattle traps,and crayfish color crankbaits.

I use Husky Jerks, rogues and carolina rigged floating tubes. In two weeks Jig and Pig will kill in the warmer water brush and stick ups. If your not sure use live bait this time of year. A 1/8 oz jig head and minnow will always produce every kind of fish in the spring depending on where you throw it.

I hate you guys. I've still got at least a week to wait before the ice goes off.

Rob,Talked to a guy today that did real well at Magadore res.on Husky Jerks.If this warm spell lasts the fishing should be on fire.

The bass I have caught in the past week have all hit a husky jerk or rogue fished really slow.
