Finally some open water nearby. I headed out to a neighborhood pond and low and behold, the first rattletrap bass of the year. Things are looking up 2 Hopefully next week brings some nicer weather and the fish get active.
Also had luck with the 1/4 oz rattle trap golden shiner today. Didn't even use slow retrieve. It's just great to cast again let alone catch some fish ! Seems like all the fish were right off the weed edge. Have confidence when it comes to ice off bass, get out there and cast and they'll nail it ! Sorry bout the horrible phone camera pics.
