We finished in the top 20 of the Cast for a Cure tournament by throwing Manns Baby 1- in the newly emerging pads. This is always a hot bait in the early spring. Use a chartruse or some guys even throw chrome if the water is stained. The sun absolutely must be shining if you throw chrome or you wont get bit. All of our fish came from the game reserve area directly behind pony Island. I also caught two flipping a sweet beaver (corndog color) around laydowns. The bite is very quick when the bait hits the water. Be ready. Dont spend alot of time with the bait in the water still. They were hitting it within a few seconds of being in the water. No spinnerbait bites at all. It should be on fire up there in about a week. The warmest water we found was 48.3 degrees.
