How To Catch Your New PB Bass Before Summer

Its not too late! You've got one more shot at MONSTER bass before Summer arrives. Matt explains what the bass are doing as they transition, how to get ahead of them, and the best presentations to catch them. Whether you're already fishing the post spawn in the South or your lakes are just opening up in the North, this information will help you catch a bigger bass this Spring!

Catching a monster bass can happen at any time, but catching them consistently requires commitment. You have to start thinking differently when you're on the water, no longer focusing on "going fishing" and instead focusing on the fish's movements and feeding habits so you can predict their next move. If the bass in your area are still spawning, you have an awesome shot at a new Personal Best bass this Spring but if that door has already closed, all hope is not lost!

Matt explains that after the fish spawn there is one more shot to specifically target the biggest fish. They'll move off to recuperate but as soon as they're done (typically no more than 2 weeks) they'll feed aggressively one more time before heading into Summer. These fish can be targeted with a swimbait on virtually any fishery. Its not the way to catch numbers of bass but if you're ready to break your PB, the biggest bass of your life could be waiting for you on your next trip to the lake.

Below is a breakdown of the baits and tackle Matt recommends for this Style of Spring and post spawn fishing.

New Personal Best!! Tim Caught A Monster!!

7 lb Smallmouth! Tim's shattered his personal record with this new PB bass! He was throwing a small swimbait in frigid water when the monster bass bit. Check it out!

Tim used the Matt Allen swimbait head paired with a keitech to create a unique rocking action that these bass had never seen before. We were getting bit on nearly every cast when the big one made her mistake. Smallmouth, like most bass, are prone to schooling. By triggering the smaller bass we were able to fire up the school and get this giant to make a mistake. 

What an amazing fish! Huge congrats to Tim on the new personal best bass!

Smallmouth bass are amazing predators. They thrive across the country in cold and warm water alike. These bronzebacks are incredible fighters and feed aggressively, even in the coldest of water. Keep an eye on the channel as there is an entire series of smallmouth videos coming soon!
