Days are getting longer
It won't be long now before small ponds will start to thaw and warm with the increased daylight we're getting. If you live in the South or are traveling that way sometime soon, some of the best warmwater fishing of the year can be had from now until April. Bass, bluegills, and the like are poking around in the shallows and preparing to spawn, offering some great sight fishing opportunities. In New England this doesn't typically happen until late Arpril or early May, even later in northern New England.
Of course, with the winter we've had I wouldn't be surprised if this is delayed by a few weeks. But it's awfully nice to think about on a bright and cold winter day.
