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.

Underwater Footage | Bass Eating Jerkbaits and Swimbaits

Spring is your best opportunity to catch a new personal best bass. The big fish are up shallow looking for food and getting ready to spawn. The key to consistently catching big fish is finding the baitfish. If you find the food, you'll find the biggest bass. In today's video we discuss the 7 baits that you should have ready to go for those big prespawn bass.

Underwater footage gives us amazing insights into the underwater world. Its amazing how fast these fish move, how aggressively bite and conversely, how quickly they lose interest. Watch closely so you can identify the "triggers" that caused these fish to feed.

Always ensure that you have a bladed bait (A-rig, spinnerbait, underspin), or flashy bait (Jerkbait, Fluke, Squarebill, Glide Bait) ready to go during the Spring. Keep an eye out for subtle swirls, shoreline cover moving, or flashes in the water to alert you to the presence of baitfish. Find the bait is more than half the battle. Once you've located bait, the bass are sure to follow!

Below is a breakdown of the baits in the video as well as the baits we recommend for each category.

Spinnerbait Tricks For Spring Bass Fishing

These quick tips will take your spinnerbait fishing to the next level! From color selection and blade style, to subtle changes in retrieve cadence, we're giving you the tools you need to begin catching bass right away. Whether you're fishing muddy creeks or crystal clear lakes, we explain the changes that will make you successful.

Spinnerbaits are amongst the easiest baits to fish for bass. A simple "chuck and wind" approach will catch fish most days. But like any technique, subtleties make all the difference!

Below is a breakdown of our favorite spinnerbaits, trailers, and gear. They're sorted by water clarity and style to keep it as simple as possible. Keep in mind the best weight depends on how deep you're fishing but 1/2 oz is by far the most versatile.
