Its hard to argue with Tim's Top 5 when you see these bass absolutely destroying them! Finesse fishing is often overlooked but it can be deadly during the prespawn and spawn for wary bass. Pay close attention as Tim explains his top 5 baits for spawning bass because he's giving you key details to go along with each bait choice.
Many anglers lock into a single bait during the spawn. They throw the same bait to every bed regardless of the fish's natural reaction. This is a huge mistake! Its critical to have a handful of options ready to go and adjust quickly from one to the next until you find the bait each bass is most interested in.
Below is a breakdown of the top baits and equipment Tim discussed and used in the video. We included color recommendations as well to imitate natural baitfish as well as bluegill color schemes.
