Bass fishing can be tough in the early spring, especially this year as the ice just melted a week or two ago. Shallower lakes and ponds will warm up sooner and be your best shot. Use lighter lines, smaller baits and a slower retrieve this time of the year and you will get more results.

From a kayak, try slowly trolling. You could cover a lot of water that way. A small Rapala, like an SSR-5, SR-5, JSR-5 or Scatter Rap would probably work well. Don't be afraid to try fishing the shallows, too.

Size and retrieve is a big factor right now, other than color.

Throw something small no bigger than 3" long. Slow steady retrieve and jerk and pause techniques are what are more common this time of year.

Soft plastics no bigger than 4" and small jigs are good to work slowly on the bottom where it's not too weedy.

My 2 cents..water is still chilly unless your fishing a farm pond..structure is a main key..say 4 to 10 ft..look for rocky banks.clay banks.will produce heat from sun.points with a quick transition..deep weed edges..depending on brightness of days things will change..remember fish don't have eyelids and can't close there eyes..bright sunny days.they will hunker down to structure..cloudy or rainy days they will roam..even though I see them cruising on bright days..I don't know..lol..I use a 4 inch jerk bait..anywhere anytime..with luck..can't go wrong with a jig..better yet slow roll a grub!!!!

Hey how was Babcock? I drove by it Saturday. There people out...I hit the little one up next to it, and caught a pickerel. I'm also curious about Dooley...it was low last year and cloudy so I'm skeptical.

The water level at Babcock was fine and very clear, but I didn't catch anything. Babcock was cloudy, but the water level was fine. They had a damn breach a few weeks ago with the torrential rains, who knows what today's downpours will bring...
