February Thaw?
« on: February 25, 2017, 01:27:48 PM »
With ice-out just two days ago but Spring like temps the past few days I headed out to chase those little green fishes. I found fish on break lines in 3 to 5 fow and in drains leading to flats. Caught over a dozen mostly on suspending jerkbaits.@ProvidenceBassHunter

Way to go @toadhunter  :thumbup:

I hit Chapman's Pond yesterday for a couple hours and landed two bass in that short time. Also had three other bites but failed to hook up with any of them. Can't complain about catching bass in February  :nope:

@Joe P Chapman's was mid 40s. But I'm sure it will nosedive again this week.
