Any Thought??

Recommended Posts

Ok, I got out for a little pre-fishing for our first tournament on Sunday. Found fish in pre-spawn mode hanging on the first break on cranks and jigs. Here's my dilema, between today and Sunday we are going to get some scattered storms, windy(20mph+) and its gonna warm up 15 degrees but no sun. Any thoughts on what the fish are likely to do? My gut tells me to stick with the fish I found and see what happens.

When a storm is approaching, especially at this time of year, the barometric pressure varies. Pressure is essentially at the center of the majority of the bass' sensory ability. When the atmospherical pressure changes- rise of fall- the bass' senses frenzy, causing it to move and feed. This is my understanding of this phenomena, take it or leave it. I hope this helps you in your tournament endeavors. Good luck and good fishing.

Stick with the fish you found and remember the next step is if they arn't there move shallower...good luck

NCBassmaster is right. You stick with your fish, but then move shallow. Alternate thought; I'd really look at the water temp when you put the boat in the water. If its 65 or higher, I'd start shallow first, then check your spot later, when the sun is up. The reason I say this, is I had a tournament a few weeks ago(I'm inthe south), and I had a pre-spawn hump that was loaded with big females..it was awesome in pre-fish. I spent 2 hours on it on tournamet day....nothing. Moved shallow, and eeeked out a 2nd place finish. My great spot almost cost me, cause I didn't fish the conditions. It warmed, they moved.

I agree 100%.

Stick with your fish. You may have to adjust to their new mood or position, but they want to spawn, so they won't go very far.

Yep, they were right where they were supposed to be and it paid off. 1st for me and 4th for my non-boater. Great start to the season!!! I won by 1lbs and my non-boater got a 4.87, can't complain with that.
