As the weather starts to warm up and the ice thaws off the lakes, take a look at some tips for fishing in the spring.

Watch the weather: As the weather can change day-to-day during the early spring, make sure you are watching your local forecast to pick out the warmer days to go fishing.

Use bait: During the spring months, fish will be attracted to live bait and you might get a catch.

Fish in shallow water: The shallow water around the edges of a lake can be warmer  this time of year, attracting the fish as they seek out warm water.

Pack well: Spring weather can change quickly, so pack clothing for both rain and sun. Also, pack bait that’s versatile for different water conditions.

Go later in the day: While usually fishermen set out in the early morning hours, during the early spring the best time to fish can be in the late afternoon, when the water has had a chance to warm up a bit.
