This next full moon on March 5, combined with rising water temperatures, is surely going to move a large wave of fish up shallow to spawn. The only thing that could interrupt those fish from moving up shallow would be a drastic drop in water temperature as a result of a series of cold days. With our current weather conditions, I don't see that coming. So, start ...
