Fishing was still very good with most of the action coming over deeper water mud lines. You can catch fish deep inside the mud as well, however they were preferring the edges this weekend.

Many understand the spring bite is in full sawing in many areas and that is making for some fantastic fishing right now. Weather is playing a small factor as well, but for the most part, fishing is HOT right now.

Well, the weather has certainly done another 180 degree turn in the area. 70- and 80-degree temperatures have been replaced by cold, rainy weather with a chance of more snow over for most of this week before warming up next weekend.
