  1. When snags with spoons happen in shallow nearshore water at this time of the early season consider using stickbaits. They float up when making turns or stopping for snags. Your fishing time increases when you can avoid stopping for snags.
  2. Water temperatures are the key to success at this time of year,. Snow melt from farm fields are exposed to more sunlight and that is the key. Dirty colored water has crystal clear water underneath it and the colored water shades strong sun light for the fish.
  3. You must be a night shift operator in a water plant . I had 26 years on the night shift.
  4. I remember winters when the ice was three foot thick. Strong enough to allow a steam locomotive to cross the lake. This year the ice is no where near as thick,
  5. Three ounce lead sinkers get you down to 80 foot easily.
  6. Too much Precious fishing time is lost dealing with the extensive reeling out and retrieving these extreme lengths. Side planers are more effective and productive.
  7. My early spring King success was to troll near shore with Rapalla J13 plugs from first light near shore. After 8:00 AM we moved off shore as the sun rose up in the sky. Out to fifty foot at least with light weight spoons slow trolled.
  8. We had a perch fish fry this evening at Hoak's Restaurant with unlimited visibility. It looked like solid ice all the way to Ontario.
  9. If all the Western Basin ice is blown back to Buffalo., The Welland Canal will be packed up with ice and the Niagara River will flow a lot of ice cold water for a while now.
  10. Mooching reels will work fine off downriggers or bottom bouncing close behind the stern of the boat. With side planers though you actually tire of the long line retrieval times.
  11. Some good strong SW winds will pile up the western basin ice fields on the eastern shores. The loose fitting ice will make huge piles along our shoreline here.
  12. Coast Guard ice breakers are opening a channel on the Saint Clair River to alleviate flooding there and on Lake Huron. Always something new happens.
  13. Many 40 pounders were not weighed in for contest entries.
  14. Does anyone remember when forty pound Kings were caught regularly?
  15. Natural reproduction results in smaller salmon that are not fed during the long winter months. They are most likely forage for the mature salmon and trout. Anyway their value is not usually counted in stocking numbers.
