The sun this time year is definitely your friend and locating shores that gets direct sunlight is the key to an empty livewell or one with a limit. Here are some areas that will hold fish in the early spring.
So this year when the ice melts off the lake and your heading out to your favorite bass lake pay close attention to your water temp and pay special attention to the banks that sun is directly hitting and you will catch more bass.
