Ok so here we go again. Last year was stupid cold and set us back two weeks from the start of fishing. With the exception of this front passing through the mid atlantic and northeast we are right on track for a March Season opener!. March is the time of year to get the fat pigs and load up on shad. In the next week I will start walleye fishing, two weeks after that I'll be shad fishing, and 3 weeks after that it will be striper swiping time.

So here's the season's break down

March 1-Jun-15 Striped Bass
March 1-May 20 American Shad
May-September SmallMouth Bass
March-November Walleye
