Springtime Bass

What a great time of the year for us bass fanatics. Spring is in full swing and whether your thing is sandbass, striped, smallmouth of the ever loving largemouth, they are all out there just waiting to be reeled in.

Its been a slow start to the Spring season as we try to break free of Winter's grasp. Depending on what part of the country you're at will dictate what the bass are doing.

Here are some quick tidbits to keep in mind as you go in search of your trophy catch.

  • First, before the spawn the bass will stage right outside the shallow areas where they will eventually spawn. Check the points right outside of coves and other flat, shallow rocky areas. Especially if there is structure near by such as creek beds and such.
  • Next they will start heading into those shallows to do their thing. Make sure you have a good pair of polarized sunglasses and start doing some sight fishing.
  • Keep in mind that bass aren't necessarily looking to feed at this point. Their mind is on one thing only. You need to present your bait as an intruder who threatens their nest. This is where the strikes will come from. Aggravated bass looking to strike anything that gets in their way.

Help A Fellow Angler Achieve Her Goal

I met a friend on Twitter recently. She is a fellow angler and trying to gather the funds needed to go to college so she can not only fish but achieve a goal that she is determined to acomplish. :)

Anyway she has a site set up for people to donate to help get her through college and in exchange she will make you some custom fishing lures out of pop top cans. Awesome!

Anyway I urge you to check it out and donate to a fellow angler if you can. Here is her link. Cast Away Student Debt Lures
