Spawn is the most predictable part of the spawning cycle. Did you know that some states in the USA have banned bass fishing in spawn because anglers are causing havoc on the spawning bass? But that aside, this is when the water temperature is getting to the ideal stage and this is when the big momma’s will move in on the freshly built nests. This period might be anything from a couple of days to a couple of weeks all depending on the water and weather conditions. One year we were catching spawning bass for more than a month, we couldn’t go wrong. I’ve found that a large, bulky bait which irritates the bass might just be what the doctor ordered. A magnum lizard is a good lure to start with. If you use a small bait the fish might just push it out off the nest, it’s not really going to feel as irritated as when you plunge a giant bait next to it.
