jump into spring - fox chain of lakes report

With such a rapid infusion of warm weather, local areas lakes are fishing in full blown spring patterns. Backwaters, bays, and harbors are heating nicely and are drawing in all sorts of gamefish.

On a side note, this winter was hardly severe enough for all the weeds to be killed off. In fact, they are quite lush for this time of the year.

Husky jerks and slip bobbers with live bait produced for me equally well. Crappies, bluegills, bass, and some nice sized whites were caught and released in just a few hours.
