Farm ponds are starting to warm up!
It's typical of this time of the year, but the farm ponds are the first ones to warm up. I hit a local pond, today and noticed the fishfinder was marking them higher in the water. The temps were in the upper 50s.
I used a shad colored crankbait to catch this guy...a 14" largemouth. A nice start to the year. Threw him back to get bigger.
If God didn't want man to eat animals, he wouldn't have made them out of meat.
