Warmwater Fishing

Type: Freshwater
Region: Central
Location: Local Warmwater Pond

Warmwater fishing is, I think, at it's best right now because the sunfish are spawning and some of the bass are still on their beds. Some people disagree with fishing for sunfish and bass when they are on their beds, but as long as you handle the fish gently, release it quickly, and don't hit the bed with your lure, the fish are always fine. During spawning is when all of the big fish get caught because you can easily see them, and they are easiest to catch at this time.

As far as technique, any Panfish jig or lure will catch them, but I went with trout magnet in bison and a green/black color today and caught more than I could count. I like to fish it without an indicator and just twitch it in slowly--they are bound to hit it.
