I know there must be a million variables, but I’m asking anyway. Do SMB spawn later in the spring than YP, GSH, RES and HBG?
The reason I’m asking is I’m at the pond and there are larger fish really on the move. Large wakes from aggressive moves. Just wondering if the SMB might be spawning, or just near the bank feeding on all the fry.
I know my SMB have had successful spawns because we’ve caught a fair number of second ge station fish. Not lots maybe 10. Still have just kept 5 of the original stickers from 2015.

SMB typically spawn in mid 50's to low 60's water, depending on a variety of conditions. I would assume YP would be earlier than that and think HBG would be later (normal BG would be), I don't know about the other 2 but would guess later for them also.
