I've always hear about fishing the north ends of a lake in the spring because they warm faster in the spring. I've heard stuff about sun and wind. Why does the north end of a lake warm faster than any other parts of a lake? Is it due to sun, or due to wind or both? How is the sun and/or wind a factor in the spring on lakes?

Its the angle of the sun that makes the north shore warm faster, In St Clair its bouvier Bay near the Salt river and New Baltimore areas. It is the shallow water areas. If the deeper water gets discolored it will also warm faster. Clear water warms slower than stained water.

Also warm surface water goes north in spring with pre-vailing winds coming from the south. And in spring there can be abrupt whether changes with major cold fronts blasting through and the north end of lake has better protection. As the sun gets higher in the sky the angle changes daily.
