Spring Bass and Spro Baits

The ice has left the lakes and ponds and the bright sunny days are starting to warm up their waters.  The bass are on the move and soon the big girls will be up on the beds while the males cruise the inside edges of the weeds.

The magic time, however, is just beginning.  The pre-spawn period is when these fish are really starting to get active with the warming water and the longer days.

Lake Missaukee Mark Martin Ice Fishing School

The town of Lake City Michigan rolled out the Red Carpet for Mark Martin and his crew for the Lake Missaukee Ice Fishing Vacation school this past January.  Between the great hospitality and the awesome fishing there was very little that someone could say in a negative tone.

We were joined by Chis Kreiner and Zach Aungst from Great outdoor pursuits as they videoed the event.  Sit back, grab a cup of coffee and watch the episode that Chris and his team have put together for everyone to enjoy.

Mark Martin Holds Ice Fishing Schools
