Bass Are Spawning What Do You Use?

Recommended Posts

I am going to try flipping tubes this year. I've also had minor success with wacky sticks like BBB cane stick in very clear water spawning conditions.

I just got back from fishing one of my local lakes and was using a Keitech 4.8 in Silver Flash rigged weightless with a 4/0 Gammy Superline Hook and caught 21 bed fish. I caught around 9 females and the rest males. Smallest fish was 1.5 pounds biggest was 4.5. I must say this is may be my new bed bait

You did not let us know where you live, so in the south I would use lizards, craws, and a jig.

i have been struggling lately. the fish are all over me in the lake, but can't seem to catch them. the only time i caught them was when it was getting dark with a water melon senko. i heard that invisible line is super important. is it true?

I started a summer job two weeks ago, was busy all week, came to the ponds and found a bunch of post-spawn fish. My buddy at a pond I fish told me he caught 14 bass there over 3 pounds bed fishing. I totally missed something I was looking to since last year. :(. So unfortunately, I can't help you.

 DON"T LET THEM SEE YOU!!  you can't stress that enough.  put away your boat and walk the bank that's where they are!!    

 that's what I do.  wear matching foliage clothing and be real sneaky. make sure you are throwing something different every time to the same fish.

 I have a lot of luck with weightless flukes on a light spinning rod with 6lb flouro twitching it back and forth over the nest it really ticks them off.  also Gary Y creatures slow crawling towards it.

 

  Please be gentle with these bass they are stressed out enough without our selfish acts of self indulgence. ha ha

Try a Drop shot senko it's proved successful for me this year.

I rarely see fish on their beds .This time of year , though ,I run  the gamut with shallow baits . Hopefully one of them works .
