I fish mainly in the area between betsy ross bridge and burlinton bristol bridge with most of my focus being a one mile stretch between just north ranacokas river and jus south of pennypack creek. Last year I did alot of scouting to find more staging/holding/feeding locations south towards betsey Ross. No the migration will not officially kick off til the shad and herring enter the bay which I have not heard conformation on. And migrating bass follow the bait. Its going to be alot different this year than any of the previous years because of the mild winter water temps are around 8-10 degrees higher than they have been over the last 5 years at this date and time. 45degrees is the start of everything 50-55 is prime u can pretty much watch the water temps at this time of year and be able to know wht to expect. April through may have typically been the most productive months on the river for bass but I suspect not many bass have wondered to far south so I expect the bay to fill up and the push to begin sooner than later. Getting pumped tho I can't wait. Got my reels back from penn (always a great job from them) got my new herring lures today got me extra excited. So Ill be on the beach this weekend but come march 1st u can catch me on the big D any given day I'll be the smallest and slowest boat out there but the rods will stay bent.
