Tips For Fishing Changing Water Temps As Winter Turns To Spring

Spring fishing is here and depending on where you are in the country the water could be 65 degrees or 40 degrees, which can make things difficult. For those of you who are still dealing with cool, spring water temps (40 – 55 degrees) these tips are for you. As bass move up in the spring they are looking to feed heavily before the spawn around shallow cover. Three great baits to target these bass are the squarebill crankbait, football jig, and shaky head worm. Watch Ben explain how he likes to fish each of these killer spring time baits!
