The Key to catching big bass in Spring is to cover water and find the aggressive fish. Once aggressive bass are located you can switch between colors and styles of bait to keep the schooling fish active for as long as possible. Switching betwen a squarebill, jerkbait, alabama rig, etc… will keep them biting long after they would have given up on a single bait. Apply these bass fishing tips to your advantage this Spring and you’ll begin catching more bass right away!

What’s the water temp that will put fish in prespawn mode? 50? Above 50? Is it a bad idea to fish in the creeks in this 50 degree water? I’m in north ga on a TVA style lake if it helps

Brett Wise says:

i live in south carolina and we are in early prespawn what do you recommend throwing to target those really big bass when the water is still just starting to warm up?

Ben Zerzanek says:

Any opinions on big topwaters in shallow water during spring? like the MS slammer?

Brian Gipson says:

Kentucky65 says:

Guys when throwing a swim bait,or crankbait or what ever how long do you fish that per say color or what ever befor you change baits or color because of not getting hits or catching ?


M79Man says:

never really tried those other baits…in the spring the only thing I throw is a tandem spinner bait…I have always caught my biggest fish on spinner baits…perfect conditions for me mean 5 or 10 mph wind blowing into a bank…preferably with lots of wood in the water…my 2 cents…these guys are experts and I respect their guidance…

Jamie Young says:

William Whittenburg says:

I have had trouble in locating bass during the transition periods while fishing in the California Delta. Do you find that bass in the tidal environment follow the same migration paths or do those fish have smaller “ranges” in which they migrate? Thanks for all the information and continued efforts to increase the interest in bass fishing.

David Jackson says:

thank you for what you do . you reach a lot of fishermen

jay bugni says:

Early spring is a long way away for me but I don’t mind. A buddy and I caught 89 blue gill on the hardwater this morning. Too bad we had to leave in the early afternoon. I was hoping to break the 100 fish mark in one day.

Ryan renshaw says:

Glad I found your channel good work

Larry Cederholm says:

First thanks for the work of making these videos….  That being said I’m new to bass fishing and still confused on bait for seasons, presentation of each bait, finding fishing locations in the lake will you ever do a vid on these thanks

GirlsHuntToo Vlogs says:

Nice, I wish we had open water. Went out ice fishing a couple days ago and caught 35 perch

Bennett Gaeger says:

What temp does the water need to get to before the bass begin to move off of their winter spots? Any other thoughts on water temps and baits would be welcomed. Great show.

Jo Reinsch says:

thanks again for all your help.
