Slower speed in spring?

Recommended Posts

I have been fishing Lake O a few years. But not usually in the spring..

I try to run about 2.8mph at the ball.

Should I be slowing down the spring?

Also noticed.. maybe flasher/fly not as effective in spring as spooon and meat.


Just looking for more ways to put fish in the box

1.8 mph in spring for browns and lakers.  If kings are on the graph I pump it up to 2-2.25 depending on water temp and mood of fish.  Then you have to match the speed to the baits you are running.  If you run an NK 28 with a treble at 1.8 mph, you will be washing lures for a long time.
