LM Bass Fair up to 3.0 lbs Work those shallow areas along the curly leaf pondweed, plastics or small spinners, fish will be looking for some warmer water.

General Comments

Just stocked 200,000 walleye fry last week, will be a while before these guys are big enough to eat. 

Spring is here but the water temperature is headed the wrong way with the snow!
