Early in the spring, try using any kind of body baits that imitate minnows/smelt/alewives. I usually use Rapalas and Yo-Zuri minnows. We also troll with the same spoons we use throught the year, too. It seems like one of the hottest colors this early for the last couple of years has been Black Raspberry. You can contact Mike Mullins at Mullins Sports and More in Lex for up-to -the-date fishing info. He's a M-S website member. Good Luck and watch the weather!
Lexington in April is my favorite month to troll. Fishing can be fantastic out of there once you know what to do. Put in your time and you will be rewarded with BIG Kings. There is nothing like an 18 lb SPRING king!
MOst people rely on body baits for spring kings, but dont be afraid to throw a small spoon or two at them either. As mentioned before, nothing like a big spring king....i hope you have a lot of line on your reel.
