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.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
