This is the first day of spring-open water is coming soon

Wow! Went outside this morning and it felt like spring. I could actually see puddles, not ice, and patches of bare grass. Will the next two weeks show some open water on the local ponds? In the past I have checked out local ponds at early ice out to look for signs of winter kill. I have discovered some huge dead largemouth in small retention ponds that I had previously thought held no quality fish. Often, it seems the larger fish die off from lack of oxygen before the little ones do. The first lure I like to use on early open water is a red Rat-L-Trap. It seems to drive those fish crazy.
