The lake cabin needs some spring-cleaning, but the water is getting warmer and the fish are moving into the shallows. Those chores will just have to wait for a while because spring is a prime time to go fishing.

This is my favorite season to wet a line. After a long, cold winter, sluggish game fish turn active and begin feeding heavily when balmy weather and warm spring rains cause the water temperature to rise. Fish get the urge to leave winter sanctuaries and move to shallow water to procreate.
