BATON ROUGE - Looking for the perfect Valentine's gift for the angler in your life? How about a new rod and reel or a lightweight, camo tackle box? In this Outdoors Report, News 2's John Jackson says not to let the cold weather fool you: fishin' is already heating up.

Now is the time to yourself a bit onto the water when it comes to a good green trout bite, but in places like Grosse Savanne in Lake Charles, the bass are starting to gorge and fatten up nicely for the spawn.

Some of the larger variety are in tight to the grass, starting to pick out spots to lay eggs. Small creature baits or slower jig-style baits are better for laying the bait through the cover.
