Outdoors: Spring fishing busting loose

Slowly, ever so slowly, water temperatures have been creeping up towards numbers fish like. The sea trout bite just keeps getting better and better as fish venture from their winter haunts up rivers, creeks and springs to spread out on inshore flats. These fish are hungry. They’ve spent the winter scrounging for anything edible. Many are underweight for their length. Baitfish are just now moving into the area and trout are taking advantage of it.

What this means is the fish are more likely to take artificial lures, simply because they don’t look out of place as when no baitfish are around. Lures like MirrOdines, Bite-A-Bait Fighters, Rapala Skitter Walks, DOA and Gulp! shrimp and even small jigs. And of course live shrimp and baitfish will work too.
