Where Do Bass Go In Spring? (And How To Catch Them)

The bass are on the move! Don't waste time fishing old Winter spots, its time to focus on Spring. In Spring the bass bulk up before the spawn and they do it in very predictable locations. Focus on these key areas and you'll begin catching fish right away!

The key to predicting the bass' movement is to understand why they are moving in the first place. The bass' goal in Spring is to spawn as soon as water and environmental conditions allow. Until that takes place, they feed aggressively along their travel route from the Winter depths to Prespawn feeding locations.

Focus on fishing secondary points and anomalies to maximize your time on the water. The exact structures change from lake to lake but points, ledges, and pieces of hard cover are all key factors. Below you'll find a break down of the baits we focus on during the Spring.

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! Knowing when to switch from a painted blade to a nickel blade, or a white spinnerbait to a shad spinnerbait, can be the difference between a couple bites and a day you'll never forget.

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.

Spring is here and its time to talk about new gear! From jerkbaits to reels, to apparel, we've got you covered on a bunch of awesome new items for 2019! This time of year is all about getting dialed in and many of us do that with new tackle. We hope this guide will help you make solid choices as you prepare to head to the lake.

This video starts out with a great new offering from Reaction Innovations. The Shiver Glide is the upsized version of the already popular Shiver Shot. Next comes T-H marine's Eliminator Prop Nut, designed to eliminate vibration in trolling motors. After that we jump into split ring pliers and look no further than the Executive Split Ring Pliers by Texas Tackle. Its amazing the difference a good pair of pliers makes!

We continue to expand from there looking at Aftco's Hydronaut suit and many more items. Everything discussed in the video is broken down and linked below.
