I have started to throw a few dozen casts every evening to try to catch that first schoolies of the year..nothing yet... swim shad and a jumpin minnow... I know the topwater is a shot in the dark, but I love seeing a crash into the lure... hope it warms up a bit so they will move up here...

Yeah, I've heard topwaters aren't supposed to work early but my first schoolie of the year typically comes on an Atom popper.

My first fish over the past 7 years has been on a Creek Chub Striper Strike...

Some of my once early spring fishing for blue fish also brought an occasional keeper bass on the same plug swimming below the surface. They would be a home grown plug made at MV by Mr. Johnson called the Roberts

Depends on where you're fishing.   
Early season schoolies up in my neck of the woods is all poppers on top in one spot, but just upstream it's all grubtails as they're chasing grass shrimp in the outflow from a pond.

Forsythia just coming out here a bit northwest of Boston. Started 2 days ago. At least for my street a bit early, maybe 10 days early. Hung the rods in the van today. Need a little bit of hope every day with the way things are going.

Hope all are well.
