Last year was a travesty for me. Didn't fish as much and haven't been in a while, but it's about that time. One of the most exciting times, if not THE most exciting for me and probably many others. So, I'd like to know who else is anticipating the spawn phenomena and what you're predicting?

They are staging/spawning now. Flipping/pitching is gonna be a big hitter right now.

Man, i cannot imagine spawning bass right now.  Here in VA on my local lake the areas that are shady for a good portion of the day have skim ice on top.....although i am sure further up north people have full on ice now.

Yes you Northern boys have it rough now. That's too bad cuz I caught over 50 bass this past weekend here in South Carolina.
Oh well that's the price you pay for living there! Just teasing.
Hey Gambler, I'm headed to Lox next week. How's the water level there? Anything different from
last year?
If it's Saturday and I'm not fishing then I must be dead!

Pre spawn was very good to me and they have been very fat.  Found 2 beds last Sunday, hoping to find a good bite this weekend.  You up north guys think its great but we are paying for it.  Its been in the upper 80's with humidity as thick a butter. We havent seen a winter now for 2 years.  It would be nice to fish and not be drenched in sweat, have to wear a buff, gloves and still get things burned off by the doc every 6 months.

level is OK. Last time I went out a few weeks ago, the wind was blowing 15mph, and the duck hunters were out there. I didn't get a chance to get into the flats, but its been good out there.

I had a little male and female about 3lbs bedding right at the foot of my yard/canal in Margate for a few days, but I havent seen em the last few days. All the other water Ive fished lately had almost no visability n havent had the boat out in a few weeks.

The weather has been beautiful.  I've been seeing a few beds lately in the canals, have done no fishing in ponds at all.  It's been a little quite this past week, although I seem to manage something decent every day.  Yesterday PM started slow, 1 fish about 6# for the first hour, the last 20 minutes I caught 4 or 5.  I have been using nothing flukes as topwater, had I been using bottom baits I'm confident I would have greatly improved my production, I just don't enjoy that kind of fishing.

The magic feeding time lately has been around 1600-1900. Been crushing them with frogs along the banks. If you go out in the middle of the day, you better be pitching into some kind of structure.

They are going crazy in a spot I fish in. Schools of huge bass. I lost a 4-5 today at the shore. You seen tons of big fish. You catch a fish and they bring more in. I caught a 3.5, threw him back in, my friend cast his lure out and the bass turns back and eats the jerkbait...mind you the bass was bleeding a bit. Its been nuts. Every fish last sat was fat as all heck

No offense to anyone, but the pitchers and flippers pretty much struck out at the lake today in the FLW. The "sticks" that know the Lake topped out at about 12-14# and most less than 10#. It's litterly like the more you "know" the Lake the worse you are doing. Roland caught one for 1-1/2! Scott had like 9#.. tharpe like 10#. That all tells you something.  Whatever anyone thinks is happening with the spawn I think is off. There may be anecdotal reports of beds etc but it hasn't happened yet in any large manner yet, unlike other years by this time of year. Maybe it could turn on with this new moon this weekend but I don't know. Winning bag total will be less than 90 and maybe less than 80 IMO. The Lake is confusing even the best
