Looks like an early spring on Champlain as many of the bays are already open or never froze this winter. Some of the fishermen are already on the main lake where it is slow but their picking up a few. Water is still very cold with a high of 36 in some of the shallow bays. This is where long lines seem to work the best. Run a flat line back 125 feet and lines on your downriggers down about 2 to 4 feet, back 75 feet. Small stickbaits and 3″ metal lures.
