Early Summer Fishing- Catch A Giant Bass Right Now!

You only have a few days! There is a short window during the full moon in June that you can specifically target MONSTER bass with swimbaits. Once this window closes you're in to Summer patterns and typically have to wait until Fall for your next shot with the giant baits. Don't miss your chance, get the info and head to the lake now!

You only have a few days before the full moon arrives. Its time to head to the lake! Our primary bait for this window is a wake bait. If the fish won't come all the way to the surface with switch our attention to a glide bait. If the glide doesn't seem to fool them, we head a little deeper with paddle tail swimbaits. All 3 options have a shot at putting a truly GIANT bass in the boat for you this weekend.

Below is a breakdown of the lures and equipment we use for this big bait approach to Summer bass fishing. Remember, its a short window so get out there and catch them while you can!

How to Catch Shallow Bass In Early Summer

Its time to head shallow for some Summer bass fishing fun! Frogging, wakebaits, flipping, and a whole lot more... its the fishing we dream about all Winter long! If you're not going shallow with heavy tackle this Summer you're missing the boat on a lot of really fun fishing! Today Tim is breaking down all the baits he uses to consistently target bass in Early Summer.

Everyone loves catching bass on topwater but this is the time of year you can upsize to a big wake bait and catch a GIANT post spawn bass. If the topwater bite isn't happening you can head deep into heavy cover with a heavy punching rig and pull the big fish out of the shallows. If that's not working, there are some awesome reaction options like swim jigs and crankbaits that consistently fool Summer bass.

Don't miss your chance this Summer! Whether you're bank fishing a pond, paddling a kayak, or ripping around in a brand new bass boat, the Summer months have some amazing fishing opportunities. Head into the shallows and explore everything your lake has to offer! Below is a breakdown of the tackle discussed in the video.

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.
