First trip out this year. Water levels 2.38, clarity 18” green stain, windy with nw gusts up to 30mph+, water temps 47 and sunny. Bank fished for 6hrs and fish 5 different locations. Threw a thin 3” straight worm from BPS on a 1/8oz keeperhook with 10lb stren. 16 smallmouth from 13”-16”. Fish were located in current break areas just brushing up against the current break itself. Depth 2ft-4ft. Mix of males and females, with all fish thick and round already. Some females looked like April fish, rather than early March. Good solid start to season.
