When the water starts warming up, fish begin moving to shallower waters. Early spring is great for catching walleye, bass, trout, crappies and northern pike. The fish usually start biting about a week after the ice is thawed. The best time of day to catch early spring fish is late afternoon through early eating. This is when the water is warmer and the fish are eating the most.
As the water warms up, most fish usually move towards more shallow water to get ready for spawning or feeding off shallow water prey.
Most freshwater fish like to retreat to cooler waters as the weather heats up; but different species of fish prefer different environments in the summer.
Walleyes get lazier in the summer and go to deeper, cooler waters. Walleye prefer an easy catch and don’t like hunting for a meal; finding bait resembling a minnow or a forage fish is usually effective. If you’re looking for crappies, find the nearest dock (crappies love hiding under docks in the summer). Try using a weighted jig and bobber; this allows you to float the bait right under the dock and into the crappies’ face. When the sun beats down, bass like to find shady waters under a tree or in root wads to cool off. Bass like to strike top water baits like toads or mice this time of year; be sure to splash around a bit to get their attention.
The right bait is everything, but you need to find the fish first! Find cool waters during the summer, and go deep for lazy fish, or into the shade for more active hunters.
