This warm spell is good news for the fishing!  I think if we would have stayed as cold as we were the fish would have slowed way down.  If you have been waiting for the tip ups to get going it’s time.  Over by the lights the bass are very active, and nicer northerns have been caught.  The biggest so far that I have heard of is 38″.  The perch bite by the landing lights has continued to be feast or famine, however as a bonus guys have been pulling up some nice gills as well.  The crappies are active morning and evening with good size if you find the right area.  Since Tony retired he has been out and doing pretty well.  Here are some pictures of the bigger fish from the last time he was out.
