Pre pre-spawn

SA Bass - - Strategy -

This is the first main time pe­riod for the bass. In this time the big­ger fe­males will start to stage be­tween their win­ter grounds and spawn­ing beds. In this stage I will con­cen­trate on points that will be close to their win­ter ar­eas, like struc­ture that’s lay­ing on a drop off. The wa­ter tem­per­a­ture will still be cold but as it warms up the fish will move up. I will nor­mally use a craw­dad tip crank that I will run be­tween 7ft and 10ft. You will find a tran­si­tion area like this can be very pro­duc­tive this time of the year.
