Wont you step into the freezer!?

Cold weather to start our spring season has kept things quiet so far. The temps have kept fish from moving too far to grab a quick meal. The Small Mouth Bass fishing has been pretty good however. My first outing brought several nice SMB to the net. The numbers of fish seem to be lower than normal years where higher water and warmer water temps bring fish into the systems. The quality of the fish have been spectacular however. Fighting big smallies in crystal clean flows has been outstanding. Its about to start heating up!!
