"Get Hooked on New York"

Early spring fishing on the Cape Details
Name:Early spring fishing on the Cape
Created By:tate
Details:On Saturday a friend and I fished one of my favorite small ponds on the Cape. Due to the shallow 3'-7' depths the waters warmed up significantly as the day went on. At 8:30 water temps were 44, when we left at 3:30 the water had warmed to 49.

We had a good day catching LMB's throughout the day as well as a couple pickerel and a good size sucker fish. We boated around 15-20 with most being in the 2lb range. The fish were schooling so when we caught one in an area there were usually 2 or more to follow. I started the day throwing a blk/blu jig with a craw trailer working it for at least the first hour and a half plus. Switched to bottom bouncing a Fat Albert curly tail grub (watermelon/ red flake and started catching fish. This year I want to improve my jig fishing so I did switch back to the jigs on and off but no luck, I know I need to put my time in to learn the technique. I also fished a bit with a white spinner and a small twitch bait Sluggo. My buddy tried a few different lures but ended up throwing weighted, wacky senko's and caught some nice fish on them. Overall a good way to start the season.
