Still cold out, but is fishing right around the corner

It is still cold outside and possibly it is my age telling on me or maybe I am just too busy to think about it much, but some anglers are starting to get antsy and get on the water.

Die hard bass anglers who are savvy about their skills can test them and prove their merit as hawg hunters during the Ice Breaker Tournament at Motts Reservoir on Feb. 24 and Mar. 9 in Spotsylvania. Fishing a deep sided reservoir during the late winter can be very tough. I spoke to both Ray Thomas and longtime angler and tournament organizer, Dickie Musselman, about the fishing during the Ice Breakers. Thomas says that
