Spring fishing, turkey hunting - sure signs of warmer times

By Bill Bartusek

Spring fishing began in earnest last week after some warm days. Anglers got out on creeks and channels on many lakes and found panfish ready to bite. Along with my sons, I visited one of the many channels on Lake Tetonka in Waterville. Fishing with light equipment, we were able to catch quite a few panfish in the shallow water as it warmed up. We were fishing from shore as there was no need to use a boat. However, as the week progressed and colder weather arrived, fishing slowed down.
