March and April and only separated by a day. On average, based on my observations and opinion, March will produce a better chance for a lunker bass and better shots for crappie in the shallows, while April will produce better numbers of bass as the water temps approach 70 and milfoil begins to grow.
In any given year, spring temperatures and rainfall (floods) can dramatically shift things one way or another. It seems that March weather can be brutally cold, windy, and wet at any given time... at least more so than April. However, as I recall, a cold, rainy, windy day in March last year is when a guy caught a 14 pounder and had 5 fish in the mid 30 lb. range??
If you have flexibility in planning, I would keep my eye on the weather and fishing reports. It also depends on your objective.
