The window is much shorter in New England but fish move up and off several times and not all at the same time. In Florida I fished for bedded fish in December through April. 6 or 8 weeks here varying by lake,  weather and the moon.

I caught several (beat-up) post spawn males last week at one lake. I'm pretty sure it varies lake to lake but it has been very strange this year.

The nice thing about having even a few of those lures is that they catch fish most months of the year and most fish species. It's just so easy to cut 2.5" off the tail end of a thin plastic worm and rig it on a light jighead, I'm surprised no one has done it.  These are examples of plastic lures I use the tails after cutting off the main body:
tapered sticks (not the blunt tails of Senkos) - two are pictured in clear and pearl
Kut Tail Worm
Slider Worm
finesse worms


There is no point leaving on curly tail since the new designs are more versatile and have a better action on slow retrieves.

I wouldn't have any doubts at all that these baits will catch high numbers of fish!

I love the Lew's Carbon Fire rods, so I decided to test one of their Carbon Fire spinning reels.

I think many lakes are still pre-spawn.

I fished a small lake in CT last week and saw a handful of empty beds, but no fish or fry anywhere near them.

My guess is that the spawn will heat up now that we have the sunshine back!

Maybe they haven't spawned yet. I was at Billing today and fish were on the beds.

Looks like were right in the middle of it!

Oh, you mean with pesticides? That happens every year in spring at Greenwood L. NY/NJ. paid for by the homeowners assoc. I practiced fished a week before a tournament with my partner and found good spots - leaving the areas after at least one bass was caught. Fished the tournament and all spots were devoid of weeds after weed killers were used and a harvester swept the lake near shorelines. We caught zip except a big northern pike I had to follow around using the trolling motor until it broke my line. >:(
