Including today, there are only 3 more days until the MN statewide Bass Fishing Opener.
We had ice off the area lakes in late March, a warm April, and then a cool start to May, but over the last 2 weeks it has warmed up pretty good with record high temps the previous couple of days. The full moon is tomorrow and the water temps are right for the spawn to be taking place even as I write this blog. I am guessing most of the spawning will be done come Saturday and the bite might be on the tough side around here.
As of right now I anticipate throwing swim jigs, weedless topwaters, and weightless texas rigged plastics fairly shallow.
