We have had some nice weather the past few days. It has really brought out the anglers as I have seen trucks pulling boats everywhere.
I am glad to see so many people enjoying the great sport of fishing these days. I have seen a lot of people fishing in the river lately and some night fishing. This is the time of year that you can do a lot on the lake. With Memorial Day weekend coming up, there will be a lot more traffic on the lakes so have fun and be safe.
This warmer weather also turns the fishing up. You will see areas of feeding on the surface by active feeding fish like bass. Try to fish these types of areas with a fast-moving bait like a spinner bait or crank bait. These type baits are search-style baits that will cover a lot of water and eliminate unproductive water with no fishing action and will locate feeding active fish quicker. A buzz bait or surface style bait can also be deadly on active bass and draw explosive strikes. These are the favorite baits of many anglers.
To a lot of people Memorial Day weekend kicks off the start of the summer season. But however you look at it, just get out and enjoy the beautiful weather we are blessed with.
