Right before ice up and right after ice out I like to put on some
four pound test on my spinning gear and basically ice fish open
water. I use the same ice jigs, floats, and waxies I would use when ice fishing.
The wind is definitely a problem when using this technique, but
anything to get a bite after a long winter works for me.

What do you guys use right after ice out to get some action?

A #10 purple Ratfinke under a slip bobber tipped with a waxie works for early spring crappie and a #10 Gold diamond jig with a waxie for the gills. Fish the north/ northwest side of lakes and ponds as this is the first area's to warm up. but open water is a long way off !!
