Spring Swinger

Image

Great Lakes fishermen tend to shelve the swing gear in favor of other techniques in the spring.  Opportunities do exist when water temps bump a few degrees during the pre-spawn window and later on while fish are dropping back.  This pattern evolved out of a deep desire to swing up spring steel when fry are abundant in softer water often getting kicked out into the main current when water rises.
