Now we get “prespawn” and it’s a very important time for the bass. This is of course when the fish will move onto the spawning banks. You will always get the smaller males that will be eager to build their nests. Water temperatures will start to get warmer too. One thing that you will notice is that the bass will be very object orientated and you will find them on the shallower side of a piece of structure next to its nest. Although I’ll be tempted to go for those males I will move to water with a depth of between 4ft and 7ft. Why you might ask? There I’ll be looking for scattered females which are normally bigger than their counterparts and they’ll still be feeding and because they are scattered, they will be moving fast and chase the bait. This is when I’ll be using a jerk type bait.
