crop, once we get some stable weather and a little sun, I would look for them up shallow. I would expect to find them in the bays with the reeds/weeds starting to come up. You can throw anything and get a reaction bite. For the most consistency, I recommend a jumbo leech on a plain hook, under a split shot and bobber.

Once they are shallow you will find them everywhere, use the trolling motor and keep a low profile, and you will be able to site fish. Under the Docks and in the reeds, in open pockets in the thick growth.

Remember that they will all be prespawn, still, so CPR is important!

Good Luck

Woodland

I never really target bass, but when we just want to catch fish we fish the weedlines on the flats. A jig a 2-3" plastic will keep you occupied with dandy sunnies, crappies, to many rock bass and several bucketmouths, never more than 2-3lbs but fun none the less.

My biggest came from the hump straight out from the dam outlet, we were jigging minnows for walleye when she hit, 21" and at least 5lbs. Still wishing it was a walleye, haven't figured them out there yet.

      In the summer and fall the night bite is excellent on Cass for eyes.  I'm not much help come winter time though.  With the clearer water due to zebra mussels, I would bet the night bite would be good.

      When I discover it I will let you know. I have not figured it out yet.

      Depends on your layout. If the walls can be easily removed inside that is usually the better option. If too much stuff is in the way...then yep...do as Cliff suggests.

      Is there a special dance or ritual I can do in an attempt at pleasing said fish gods? Cuz my moves and dance skills just are not up to par this year! Lol.
