Spring transition

Guest Blog by: Dave Mauldin 2/28/2018
We've been fishing a local central Texas lake almost daily, and some days have been very tough, and the good days were not much better....until Yesterday! and Today!
What happened?
We had a 2-4" warm rain, and the lake is rising slightly.
We have had unusually warm days , and better yet very warm nights.
It's a full moon.
Water temps just rose from the mid 50's to the low 60's.
It's early March.
Put all that together in Texas, and you have fantastic bass fishing.
We caught them on almost every other cast all day today and yesterday, and tomorrow
will be better. This is the one time of year I do fish the bank...just got to figure out what is the 
best depth. On clear lakes, it may be 8-12 feet....
Heck, I even saw some flocks of geese going North today.....All is good with bass fishing now,
and we want to gently release those females full of eggs.
So get out there!
What is happening on your lake? are there any bass fishermen out there?

That is outstanding Dave! I'm hitting the river this weekend to see if the bass are waking up in it. Last weekend they were not biting on anything except live crayfish. So, unless the river is muddy from rain, I'm getting in.

Up here we're waiting for them to ice off though a few of them have the fishing is still slow.
