Last year we had that early spring, by this time I had already been fishing 30-40 times, and they were literally jumping in the boat. This year, same lake, same spot, same lures and presentation; and everything is smaller and less frequent. The late start due to weather has a lot to do with it, but I don't mind so much. It always encourages me to try different spots and different lures and presentations, and it usually results in a learning experience that just adds to the arsenal. Keep on trying new things, you'll eventually get something.
