7.2 LB PIG, 2017 March


Introducing the Big Girl, slammed mid April 2017

5.4 LB Largie, 2017 April

The Spawn should be coming to an end, the Big Girls should be exhausted from not eating.  We are entering the Post-Spawn, during this period, bass are hungry, but not capable of being too aggressive due to the lack of energy. They will be cruising near shallow water looking to gorge themselves with anything available, even bass offspring.


A good technique is not to be too aggressive with your lures while the bass are gradually recovering from the spawn.  Manipulate lures with slow to moderate speeds. Some of the bass you'll catch will have very skinny bodies due to the lack of nutrition. Catching bass during this period isn't very helpful to them, and won't be the best fight for you. However, as soon as the bass recover, you'll have some of the best bass fishing of the year.
