It was a great week, with a few heartbreaking moments when splittoe and I lost a few hogs. Tried some new lures and worms with great success and gained a few pounds.

if you haven't tried lizards or creature baits, you need some. they are hog catchers. you might not get as many fish, but the fish you catch are normally worth the weight. I've won the tournament up here the last few years on a jig and creature bait. there are too many northern pike to get away w/ lizards. they gobble them up. congrats on a great weekend
Lizards are an excellent spring bait. we caught several fish on them. Zoom Baby Brush Hogs are another baits we had lots of success using in the Junebug or Watermelan Candy color. Crankbait wise the #7 Shad Rap and The Spro Little John MD produced very well. We also caught a lot of fish using a Shaky head on high pressure day with the blue bird skies.

sounds like you got it nailed down. nice selection. are your fish spawned out? we are several weeks away here. I don't think the walleyes have even started. it's been cold until this week.

The fish on ready to spawn the crappie we caught were full of eggs and most of the bass were big males. We had some of our larger bass 4 to 7 pounds that were female and had not spawned. The water temp (surface) was around 63 degrees. I'd say in the next few weeks the spawn will be in full swing. Maybe by the full moon.
