Spring Bank Fishing Tips for Spawning Bass

Today I’m bank fishing a a good size pond with clear water and looking for spawning bass. As I am walking around the bank, I start to see bedding bass and spawning bass that are chasing off bluegill. I will show you how to fish for these largemouth bass in this situation and tips for catching these fish while bank fishing. I also talk about one of my favorite bass fishing techniques for when bass are spawning, but are not staying close to the beds. For these cruising largemouth bass, they can’t stand a soft plastic senko or other stick bait slowly sinking sinking in front of them.

I love how nicely you treat them when you catch them and put them back. I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE TO THROW THEM. Good come back.

Richard Vue says:

“Oh! jeez! the bass tried to attack me!” lol. it’s about 60-75 where I live and the bass have just started to get up on beds. I was out fishing today and nothing I threw worked until I changed it to a weightless senkos or a weightless ki-tech. I got a few small bass on em but those were my first bass of the year. I saw some huge bass surfacing but they were too far away for me to cast to.

Todd m says:

no offense but u can cut most of this vid out since the viewers from ur amazing camera cannot see the fish, get a drone so we can the fish

Gunnar Reeves says:

Weightless weedless worm fishing is the best method I’ve ever used for bed fishing, I just throw it right out past them and bring it to their bed, and bass on.
