When do most of you start fishing? When Frankfort had great brown fishing, I'd start at ice out. There are a few browns out there, but not enough to make the trip over there for. From my experience, kings will start to show up around late May. One of my best months that I ever had, was early June. I think that year everything was right. The water temp, lite winds, and forage. Hopefully this year we will have favorable winds that keep the fish on our side of the lake!
